MIPIM Cannes 2022


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.

Yacht Charters with Catering on the French Riviera


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 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.

Event Catering On Yachts


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.

French Riviera Weddings


The Côte d’Azur, also known as the French Riviera, is perfectly situated between the Mediterranean and the Alps. It is a stunning region for French Riviera weddings; a dynamic mix of history, a great climate for most of the year, good transport links, impressive architectural points of interest and of course, magnificent landscapes.

Our trusted reputation dealing with discerning wedding clients for over 18 years means we take pride in our attention to detail, personalised service and high-quality catering.

Best Wedding Venues French Riviera

The French Riviera definitely has venues with the ‘Wow’ factor!   However, finding your dream venue can be overwhelming with so many beautiful options.  Of course, you can search via the internet or get recommendations from friends, however Adams & Adams can save you time (and stress) with planning and advice.  

We have local knowledge and have worked with numerous luxury and private venues, so are well placed to advise you what to expect, particularly for different months of the year where there are seasonal considerations.

With our detailed understanding of different venues, we are here to help whether you’re looking for an intimate villa, lush garden setting or a luxurious winery.

Some wedding venues include:

  • Weddings at historic venues such as Le Beauvallon, Hotel Belles Rives or Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild.

  • Magical garden weddings with temporary tent structures, live string quartets or post-ceremony cocktails.

  • Vineyard weddings at charming wine domaines in the Var and French Riviera regions.

  • Beach restaurants with relaxed ceremonies in the sand and seaside dining.


Wedding Themes : Destination Wedding Inspiration

The French Riviera is a perfect place for multi-day destination weddings. If you decide to have a destination wedding here in southern France you should take into account if the venue you choose has (or doesn’t have) accommodation; both for the bride and groom, bridal party and guests. If the venue has accommodation, you will save time and money on transportation costs so can put more budget into food and beverage.   

French-themed wedding inspiration can start with ideas on Instagram, wedding blogs or Pinterest; here’s a few wedding themes we love:

  • Romantic nuptials at a medieval chateau in a spectacular location - some have their own chapels - many of the chateaux in the French Riviera and Provence have stunning backdrops that are perfect for wedding photography.
  • A Bohemian wedding with Provençal wildflowers, pared down table settings and eco-sensible furniture.
  • Garden ceremonies with fairy lights, floral arches and guest favours such as miniature bottles of olive oil or artisan products.
  • Beach weddings with Champagne towers, coastal decor and magical Mediterranean sea views.

Wedding Catering On The Côte d’Azur

The number of guests at your wedding has one of the biggest impacts on budget (food and beverage, place cards, floral arrangements, rental equipment such as linens, tables and seating). 

If you’re looking for the best catering for your wedding in southern France, we can ensure personalised service.  We have a range of sample menus, or can work with you to create a bespoke menu suited to your dietary requirements, guest numbers and theme for your day.

Options include but are not limited to:

  • A refined sit-down meal / wedding breakfast
  • A Provençal-style buffet
  • Finger food / cocktail food
  • An on-trend food truck
  • Mobile bar offering cocktails / apéritifs / soft beverages with skilled sommeliers, mixologists or flair bar staff to create custom or classic cocktails, pour Champagne or advise on wine choices.

Finishing touches we can arrange include temporary stretch tent or structural marquees, memorable entertainment, elegant table linens, fine tableware and glassware, floral arrangements, ambient lighting and wedding party transportation.

We will effortlessly orchestrate your special day and liaise with our little black book of suppliers to create a wedding that fits your vision.
