Planning your corporate event during MIPIM

21.12.18

Create your corporate event during the world’s leading property market!
MIPIM 12-15 MARCH 2019 – PALAIS DES FESTIVALS, CANNES, FRANCE.

MIPIM, the premier real estate event in Europe, gathers the most influential players from all sectors of the international property industry for four days of networking, learning and transaction through premium events, conferences and dedicated exhibition zones. Property projects, top-tier business services and innovative solutions from around the globe are presented in MIPIM’s exhibition area in Cannes.

MIPIM is of course also the start of the Cannes corporate season. It is the event that really kicks with lots of cocktail parties, lunches and more… and it’s only a three day event.  Don't forget that as its a Reed event you are obliged to display your stand number visible at the venue where you hold your event, and only attendees of MIPIM can attend your event, just to highlight some particular demands for a corporate event outside the Palais de Festivals during the show.

If you are planning to hold an event during MIPIM in Cannes and especially outside of the Palais, you will no doubt need some expert help on the ground.

Adams & Adams have been running corporate events in Cannes and the surrounding area for over 15 years. We have the experience and knowledge to help you every step of the way. From organising a venue, to the entertainment, catering, flowers and transport plus, those all important delivery/parking permits for any necessary vehicles.

Adams & Adams have the necessary local experience and contacts to help you organise a memorable MIPIM corporate event. It might be worth your time having a quick chat about the possibilities and what Adams & Adams can do to help you to create a successful event.

5 Top Tips for planning a South of France wedding

28.06.18

So did he pop the question over Christmas? Are you now in the throes of planning the day of your dreams? Well it seems that many of our lovely couples are planning their weddings in the South of France this year and we are delighted to be involved in so many celebrations. So what are our 5 Top Tips for planning a South of France wedding?

  1. Venue
    This is the key piece of the puzzle and also the most critical in terms of your wedding. Our suggestion is that you use a reputable company to help you find the villa venue of your dreams. There are many owners who will offer their villa to you for your wedding....not all are suitable.....
  2. Budget
    Set a realistic budget. This is not the least expensive part of the world and many services are priced accordingly. Do your research.
  3. Rain
    Yes, we do have that here....if your chosen venue does not have sufficient space for your guests then you need to think about what happens if the weather is wet - or indeed very hot. The cost of a marquee or tent can save your day
  4. Food & Drink
    That's where Adams & Adams come in...with over 12 years of experience we can put together your perfect menu, working with you to deliver exactly what you want and on budget.
  5. English Spoken
    If your French is a little rusty then we can help with a host of suppliers that all speak English....

So all that's left is for you to enjoy your dream wedding here in the South of France.

Monaco Grand Prix Catering – 5 Things you Should Know

27.04.18

The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most important weekends in the Adams & Adams calendar. Working with clients in apartments and on yachts it draws heavily on our years of experience. If you are visiting the Monaco Grand Prix this year and need catering for your events then here are 5 things you need to know

1

Coming and Going - It's a nightmare! Road closures, restrictions and more. Your catering team are going to need to know their way around and be prepared to work very early and very late.

2

Accreditation - Your caterer will have to have the necessary permits and accreditation to come in and out of Monaco. Without this you'll be going hungry.

3

Experience Counts - Choosing a caterer who knows their way around the Monaco Grand Prix timing and calendar is essential. Look very carefully at who and where your caterer has worked before to avoid any nasty surprises.

4

Yacht Catering - Catering 'on board' is a specialist skill and needs a caterer with the experience of working on boats and with the knowledge to work with the crew already on board. If you are booking a boat then choose a caterer with experience of yacht catering.

5

Choose Adams & Adams - With over 13 years of experience here on the French Riviera and with many Monaco Grand Prix events under our belt then you can be confident that we will deliver our usual delicious food, stylish service and with that certain 'Grand Prix' twist. See our Testimonials page for happy Grand Prix clients.

5 Top Tips for your Event at the Cannes Film Festival

07.02.18

It's almost time to roll out the red carpet, dust off the tuxedo and finalise the details for your perfect Cannes Film Festival event. This is the time to see and to be seen and whether you are at the Variety party on the Croisette or planning an event at the Cannes Film Festival in a private Cannes Villa then attention to detail is everything. Adams & Adams have over 15 years of experience of organising events for clients at the Film Festival and here are our top 5 tips to ensure that your event is perfect in every detail.

Adams & Adams Cannes Film Festival

1

Location - Stick closely to La Croisette. Yours will probably be one of several events being held on the same evening and, if your guests have to try and grab a cab then you run the risk of a low turnout - walking distance is the name of the game. Choose one of the Cannes Croisette venues from our selection.

2

Date - Check your dates with the festival planning and try not to clash with some of the more exclusive and celebrated events that are the 'must have' invitation of the year. Avoiding the date of the annual Amfar charity event is always a good plan!

3

Invitations - It's never too early to invite your guests, add that date to the diary as soon as possible.

4

Menu - More and more of our clients are choosing options from our superfoods and healthy menu options and, during a major event it's always a welcome change for guests to be able to eat something delicious but that is a little lighter than the usual cocktail fayre.

5

Champagne - No self-respecting Film Festival event is without some great fizz and of course we are in France, home of arguably the best champagnes in the world. But our advice is to get that order in early, to avoid any issues with your first choice being available.

Celebrate St Patrick's Day with easy Irish Soda Bread

17.03.16

The perfect snack, easy, no yeast involved....Happy St Patrick's Day from Adams & Adams Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Method: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and caraway seeds. Add the buttermilk and melted butter and stir just until the dough is cohesive but still lumpy.
  3. Transfer the dough onto a well-floured work surface then gently knead the dough about 8 times until it is slightly less sticky. (See Kelly’s Note.) Form the dough into a 6-inch domed round then place it on an ungreased, nonstick baking sheet. Cut a large, 1/2-inch deep “X” across the top then dust the top with 2 teaspoons flour.
  4. Bake the bread until it is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Transfer the loaf to a cooling rack to cool completely then slice and serve.

Happy St David's Day – Let's Celebrate with Welsh Cakes

01.03.16

In honour of our Welsh freinds and colleagues we are making these delicious Welsh cakes...if you've not tried them they are simply delicious. A delicious little cake flavoured with spice and dried fruit, baked on a griddle and best served warm and sprinkled with sugar. A real Welsh treat. Here's our favourite recipe thanks to Visit Wales Ingredients: 225g/8oz plain flour 100g/4oz butter 75g/3oz caster sugar 50g/2oz currants ½tsp baking powder ¼tsp mixed spice 1 egg A pinch salt A little milk to bind Method:  Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, mixed spice) together into a mixing bowl. Cut up the butter and rub into the flour. Stir in the sugar and fruit, pour in the egg and mix to form a dough, use a little milk if the mixture is a little dry. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about the thickness of a biscuit. Use a pastry cutter to cut out rounds. Cook the cakes on a greased bake stone or griddle until golden. The heat should not be too high, as the cakes will cook on the outside too quickly, and not in the middle. Once cooked sprinkle with caster sugar and serve with butter. As an alternative you can try mixed dried fruit or tropical fruit. Some grated lemon or orange rind is also good. An unusual but delicious addition is 1 teaspoon of lavender flowers with some citrus zest. Add a little orange juice, zest and icing sugar to some soft butter to serve with the Welsh cakes.
