MIPIM Cannes Guide 2023

“The promenade of La Croisette is one of the most appreciated jewels of the city of Cannes. Linking the beach and the city, the Croisette is considered an attractive promenade par excellence.

Written in 1943, these words still hold true today – the street has received the classification of “site pittoresque” and presents a true invitation for idleness as you take in the sights.

At the origin of the designation of this prestigious walk, is a Provençal name, “Crouseto” which means “little cross”. An oratory placed at the far end of the cape reminds visitors of the history of the pilgrims who embarked from this point for the island St. Honorat, attracted by the reputation for holiness of the monks of Lérins who lived there.

We have contacts with all venues on or around the Croisette. Contact us which one you are interested in and we will help book it.

With visitors and delegates from over 80 countries at MIPIM, our corporate clients return each year to find new projects and property investments, or promote urban development strategies.

MIPIM 2023’s theme is “Better Places – Greater impact – Stronger Business.”  

Our tips if you’re coming to MIPIM 2023:

Badge pickup:  The Croisette (the main seafront road) in Cannes is still undergoing a prestigious renovation planTherefore, due to roadworks there will be several locations available to collect your MIPIM 2023 badge inside and outside the Palais des Festivals, as well as hosts guiding you to the entry and registration areas.

Badges can be collected from the Main Registration Area at the Palais des Festivals, at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, and in 3 hotel lobbies on the Croisette: the Majestic Barriere, Martinez and the JW Marriott.

Discover the latest market trends: For the first time at MIPIM, the new ‘Road to Zero’ zone will showcase 50+ solutions, from construction to operations and retrofit, to help the industry accelerate on the road to net zero. Attendees can also visit the Propel Station to see the most innovative technologies and business models.

There will be 6 new stages at MIPIM where you can participate in a mix of conferences, workshops, panels, and keynotes.  See the MIPIM 2023 conference agenda and speakers list (PDF format).

What to wear to MIPIM: The dress code in Cannes is a popular question, especially if it’s your first time to MIPIM!  Multifunctional, smart casual outfits that can go from day to night are a good idea if you’re going from one event to the next.  Daytime temperatures are forecast for 15 degrees Celsius+ during MIPIM 2023 so bring sunglasses. Evenings will be cooler so take a light jumper/blazer, wear comfortable footwear for meetings, and absolutely no heels onboard yachts.

Networking & socializing:  MIPIM loves to network and party!  Each day can go from breakfast networking to client parties in the evening at hotels, luxury villas, or onboard yachts. 

We will be busy at MIPIM 2023 with our clients onboard a superyacht, however, we recommend you don’t miss these networking/social events:

Logistics Pre-Opening event, Monday 13 March in the Foyer Debussy at the Palais des Festivals from 6 pm onwards for MIPIM delegates.

Opening Reception at the Hôtel Martinez, Tuesday 14 March from 7.30 pm until midnight that is open to all MIPIM 2023 delegates.

Free shuttle transport:  MIPIM offers its participants free shuttles from hotels located outside Cannes to the Palais des Festivals.  You can see the shuttle information and list of hotels here for MIPIM 2023 here; please note we highly recommend you check train timetables in advance as France has been experiencing regular transport strikes.
