MIPIM Cannes 2022

12.01.22

MIPIM Cannes 2022, the world's leading property market, will gather the most influential players from all international property sectors: office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial.

MIPIM is a unique opportunity to promote your development and investment opportunities or highlight skills and expertise. Delegates participate in four days of networking, learning and business transactions through premium events, conferences and dedicated exhibition zones. 

The dates for MIPIM 2022 are March 15 to 18.

Property projects, top-tier realty developments and investment solutions from around the globe are presented at the Cannes showcase.

We have been running corporate events in Cannes and the surrounding area since 2003.

MIPIM Cannes event catering

MIPIM is of course also the start of the Cannes corporate event calendar. It's the event that really kick starts the event season with lots of cocktail parties, lunches and entertaining - last year's event was moved from March to September due to the pandemic, so the 2022 show will be back in force.

MIPIM is organised by RX (previously known as Reed) who are also responsible for hosting MIPDoc, Mipformats, MipTV, Mip Junior and Cannes Yachting Festival.  Because MIPIM is a RX 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.

Adams & Adams have been running corporate events in Cannes and the surrounding area since 2003. We have the local expertise, contacts and knowledge to help you organise a memorable MIPIM corporate event every step of the way from guiding you on catering options to organising a suitable venue, to the entertainment, flowers and transport, plus those all important delivery/parking permits for any necessary vehicles.

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

Get in touch with us to have a chat about the possibilities and what we can do to help you create a successful MIPIM event. Email: events@adamsandadams.eu

Vegan catering for your French Riviera event

18.12.21

These days professional event catering companies have to give options to satisfy the vegan community, as well as an understanding that a great catering experience doesn't always have to include meat on the menu.

Vegan food has expanded beyond solely serving platters of crudites and it's a wonderful way to highlight southern France's seasonal and organic vegetables and fruit.

Vegans don't eat anything derived from animals - this not only includes meat and fish, but dairy, honey, eggs, milk and any by-products that come from them.

Plant-based menus can be special and memorable. Most of all we aim to serve healthy and delicious food presented with creativity and flavour, with the added benefit of being sustainable. We understand how important it is to choose a professional caterer, therefore we want to ensure your vegan menu is the highlight of your event!

Is vegan food a trend for French Riviera events?

Today, private and corporate events on the French Riviera are definitely reflecting vegan and vegetarian food as a trend. We cater for private suppers, weddings, film shoots, corporate brand activations and more.

So, what options do you have if you want a 'no meat, no dairy' event here on the French Riviera, but you don't want to alienate your carnivore-loving guests who may be upset there's no snails, boeuf bourguignon or sea bass on the table?

Naturally, the event host wants the food to be delicious and their guests to walk away satisfied; you may be surprised to hear them say, "Wow, I can't believe that was all vegan! It was so delicious."

Our ingredients are sourced regionally whenever possible; organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, seeds, nuts and grains.

Plant-Based Menu Sample

Adams & Adams can create a bespoke menu for you ranging from sharing plates to flavourful hors d'oeuvres, salads, mains and desserts. We can tailor-make a hot or cold buffet-style meal, or banquet style dishes.

  • Spiced Celeriac, Leek & Roasted Garlic Tart
  • Kale Salad with Tempeh & Smoked Paprika Croutons
  • Pickled Red Cabbage, Ginger & Pomegranate Slaw
  • Stuffed Mushrooms with Spinach Artichoke Dip
  • Pomelo in Lettuce Cups with Peanut & Sesame Dressing
  • Herbed Wild Rice with Chickpeas, Spinach & Raisins
  • Black Bean Cakes with Seasonal Vegetable Salsa
  • Creamy Carrot Dahl
  • Miniature Cucumber & Poppy Seed Buns
  • Raw Coconut & Cashew Curry with Walnut Mint Raita
  • Sesame Tofu Bahn Mini Sliders
  • Vegan Cheesecake, Raw Chocolate Brownies and Dessert Bar with Dairy and Egg-free desserts
Raw vegan desserts - delicious!

Beyond our reputable culinary services, we promise to provide you with world-class customer service. We strongly believe that the experience you have booking us as your catering company is just as important as the quality of our food we create and serve.

Here at Adams & Adams we gladly accommodate food sensitivities and dietary requests. Please note that due to food preparation at venues such as hotels or private villas we can not guarantee a dedicated allergen-free service whereby the catering facilities onsite don't process nut, dairy & wheat products.

Yacht Charters with Catering on the French Riviera

05.10.21

The French Riviera, also known as the Côte d'Azur, is one of the most popular destinations for yacht charters with catering, whether private or corporate. With a mild climate year round, numerous high-profile events such as Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix and Monaco Yacht Show and lovely scenery it's no wonder it's a formidable choice for a yachting vacation.

Catering is a service that goes very well with boat and yacht rental, especially for events that last only one day such as family celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, or corporate events.

Why choose yacht charters with catering using Adams & Adams?

Catering for guests on yachts can elevate an already special experience and make your event pop!

We plan menus as far in advance in order to be able to meet any particular needs of guests such as dietary requirements. An onboard catering service can either work with prearranged menus, or tailor-made menus that can be customised according to the number of guests, size of the vessel and time that will be spent docked in a marina or cruising to another destination.

Our chefs at Adams & Adams have years of experience delivering a wide range of cuisine, and are proficient at working with the current yacht chefs or as an additional catering service for parties either on board or at the quay.

Local knowledge about French Riviera events

The French Riviera is a popular destination and due to the high number of annual events and a Mediterranean yacht charter season it can be busy, generating all kinds of challenges such as traffic delays.

When booking catering with Adams & Adams, it's vitally important to discuss logistics for the marina where your event will take place; for example during Monaco Grand Prix or Cannes Film Festival there are restrictions for access to roads and the port.

Being well informed means we can eliminate risk whereby this might cause serious delays in food delivery or even the cancellation of your catering. Not a good impression for your sophisticated event! Don't hesitate to ask us questions as we are here to help.

Bespoke menus for your private or corporate yachting event

We work with the client to plan menus well in advance. This ensures we have the exact guest numbers and can create dishes that cater for everyone. Likewise, we can suggest alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink that will impress your guests. We provide professional and discreet front of house bar staff and serving staff who are comfortable meeting and greeting people.

Our Adams & Adams chefs will personally shop for your menu - buying the highest quality local ingredients and produce.

Even on the largest superyachts, there are limitations to the workspace in the galley and food storage areas so we plan well in advance. Everything is taken care of so the client doesn't need to arrive at the yacht with equipment, cookware or serving ware.

Contact us to discuss your yacht event catering

You can contact us by sending an email to events@adamsandadams.eu or by phone, calling +33 (0) 6 71 04 66 34.

You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram to stay updated with catering news about the Côte d'Azur and Monaco.

Cannes Film Festival shows commitment to environmental responsibility

27.04.21

The Festival de Cannes has recognised the need for environmental responsibility related to hosting a major international event, and has announced a number of measures that will be in place for the 74th festival that will take place from July 6-17, 2021.

After consultation with Green Événements, the Festival organisers have realised the importance of reducing their carbon footprint : recycling tarpaulins and carpets, reduction of electricity usage thanks to planned lighting, optimisation of waste recovery, carbon offsetting contributions for travel, printing on certified paper etc.

Cannes Film Festival 2021 will have a three-pronged strategy:

  1. Reducing waste and carbon emissions.
  2. Recovering residual materials.
  3. Offsetting the carbon footprint.
Image: Cannestagrams

12 initiatives will be in place for Cannes Film Festival 2021:

  1. 60% of the official cars will be electric or hybrid vehicles.
  2. A 50% reduction in the volume of red carpet used, already fully recyclable and recycled.
  3. A 24% reduction in carpet used in the International Village zones.
  4. A 50% reduction in paper printing based on a reduced print run and more online content. The festival's Official Programme will be available online, and the print version will be launched mid-May to subscribers.
  5. Maintaining a waste recovery rate of 95%. In 2019, 99% of the 250 tons of waste was recovered: 81% in materials, 19% in energy.
  6. Raising awareness of eco-responsibility with the organising committee, Marché du Film exhibitors, suppliers and participants.
  7. The appointment of an independent scientific committee to select reliable and relevant compensation programmes. During the next festival, the committee will unveil selected local, national and international projects to which the sums collected by the contributions of the festival and participants will be allocated.
  8. An environmental contribution from the festival to offset the footprint of the event's production (preparation, assembly, technical means, by products).
  9. An environmental contribution of €20 excl. VAT from festival goers to compensate for the footprint for travel and accommodation.
  10. A soft mobility incentive thanks to a pass for public transport access in Cannes on presentation of a festival badge.
  11. The total elimination of plastic water bottles (there were 20,000+ in 2019).
  12. Responsible catering: Each supplier will respect specifications encouraging the use of local producers and seasonal produce, offer vegetarian alternatives, reduce and limit waste.

Palais des Festivals certifications

After obtaining the “Sanitary Security Label” and “Ecovid Label” issued by SOCOTEC, in February 2021, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes was awarded North America’s top health certification for public hospitality facilities in March 2021, the GBAC STAR™ Facility.

Awarded by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council*, this certification attests the implementation of the strictest protocols in terms of cleaning, disinfection and prevention of infectious diseases within the establishment.

Already issued to the largest convention centres in the U.S, this certification has for the first time been awarded to a convention centre in France. These certifications have allowed health protocol assessments of the Palais' office and organisational areas, Tourist Office and shop, delivery docks, terraces, exhibition spaces, and reception and conference areas.

This is great news for the rejuvenation of Cannes events including Festival de Cannes. We’re looking forward to welcoming our clients back to Cannes events in the future.

Event Catering On Yachts

26.03.21

One of the fantastic aspects of working with international clients is the range of diverse private and corporate events we are called on to plan and manage.  We deal with everything from intimate private dinners to large-scale cocktail parties and event catering on yachts. 

Adams & Adams is experienced with superyacht parties, whereby we can either provide all the bespoke catering for an event onboard, or work alongside the yacht's head chef as a supplementary catering service.

Who are our catering clients?

Our clients are focused on partnering with us because we offer exceptional catering and personalised service.   We work with blue-chip corporate brands as well as high-profile VIP clientele who want utmost privacy and assurance of quality.

Previous events we’ve worked at include Cannes Lions, Cannes Film Festival, private terraces and superyachts at Monaco Grand Prix, Cannes Yachting Festival, Monaco Yacht Show, gala dinners and numerous private events including weddings, anniversary celebrations and birthdays.

First impressions count, and we want our clients to ‘wow’ their guests so every detail matters.  We can customise menus for :

Why hire Adams & Adams for superyacht event catering?

With over 18 years experience working with international clients, we understand the demands of entertaining and the importance of time-critical decisions. We offer an event management service providing high-quality catering, professional serving staff and excellent rapport with regional suppliers for equipment rental, entertainment and transport.

All superyachts have their own highly skilled chefs on board. However, sometimes the galley size, event numbers and limitations with cruising numbers means that many yacht companies or event planners do outsource catering for quayside parties or static yacht events where the yacht doesn’t leave the port.

COVID19 Secure Catering Service

With travel restrictions happening on and off in the French Riviera region, there is still reluctance from guests to go ashore, preferring the privacy and seclusion of a yacht. 

We ensure every possible measure is taken to ensure a COVID19 Secure experience for our clients, including impeccable food safety standards, secure storage and transportation of provisions, mask wearing, regular hand sanitisation, social distancing with superyacht crew and COVID19 testing if required prior to boarding.  This means we can successfully deliver catering experiences onboard to a safe and comfortable level that meets government regulations.

Event catering on yachts: Adams & Adams on the French Riviera

We can liaise with the yacht’s crew to help you plan and coordinate your food and beverage, tabletop arrangements and decor to elevate your yacht event. Our seamless organisation and ability to work under pressure means you can be assured of top of the line food and beverage, leaving you to focus on your clients and guests.  

We are adept at a range of cuisine styles and can adapt menus to individual tastes or dietary requirements.  Options include business breakfasts or lunches, hors d’oeuvres/appetisers, cocktail platters and grazing tables, multiple course sit-down meals and beverages such as wine, soft drinks, spirits and Champagne.

Contact us as far in advance as possible, so we can collaborate on planning to create a menu that perfectly complements your budget, theme and guest numbers.

ILTM Cannes: Going virtual

04.12.20

ILTM Cannes would have been happening at this time of year. It's almost crazy to think that a year ago thousands of luxury travel professionals were strolling around the Palais des Festivals and walking the Croisette in Cannes for International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM).

ILTM Cannes is the flagship event in the collection where high-end buyers, suppliers and media all congregate from the world of luxury travel for 4 days of business networking and glamorous parties.

While 2020 has been challenging for many businesses whose livelihoods depend on the buzz and activity within the Cannes events industry, the event organisers REED Exhibitions decided to postpone the ILTM 2020 physical event.

The good news, is that buyers and delegates could meet virtually in November and December via the ILTM World Tour - a series of online meetings held in 3 global locations.

ILTM Cannes 2021: Event Catering

Our longstanding local presence takes you beyond corporate catering in Cannes and into the heart of hospitality experiences as no other catering company can.

We look forward to providing event catering for companies attending ILTM 2021.

What: ILTM Cannes 2021

Dates: 6-9 December 2021
