Here’s just a small taster of the atmosphere in Cannes Port during festival time. Jetee Albert Edouard (Festival Quay) is the most electric place throughout all the Business Events held in the Palais des Festival, none more than the Cannes Lions | International Festival of Creativity.
BBH were our clients this year, (as they have been for many years before) and they took full advantage of the four cabins, all of which have ensuite facilities and air conditioning.
We provided Luncheons, Buffets, Dinners and also a really busy and buzzing cocktail party. BBH utilised Bettina as the central meeting point for their staff & clients alike, to get together and exchange information at meal times. They find our on-board catering service is very cost effective and BBH hosted several client dinners on board throughout the week. They utilised the four separate areas for on-board meetings including the aft-deck table which seats twelve, the top-deck table for eight & the foredeck 6/8. We provided a full uniformed crew at all times, day and night; including our Captain Walter, Chef Angie, Steward and Stewardesses.
BBH had the usual quayside tent hired in to act as their hospitality reception area, from which were served drinks and delicious canapés.
Our normal prime location in Cannes Old Port (just a few meters from the Palais) enables clients to present a high profile for the market place, three major TV Channels have filmed, aboard Bettina at major Film Festivals & International companies have had product launches & promotions.

A couple of weeks ago we hosted a truly magnificent seafood lunch to the guys and girls from BBH whilst they enjoyed a day cruise to the Lerins Islands during their corporate downtime during the Lions Festival of Creativity here in Cannes.
The two platters prepared by our friends at Poissonnerie Forville consisted of Lobsters, King Crab, Madagascar Prawns, Oysters, Bouilotand brown shrimps
The guys and girls from BBH were back on board Motor Yacht Bettina for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in June this year, and going by their Trip Advisor review they had a great time…
We hired Bettina recently corporate event, running over a week and it was absolutely fantastic. Everything from start to finish was amazing.
The staff are extremely attentive and lovely, they’re flexible and able to work around difficult schedules. The boat itself is a classic, has lots of space for hosting parties and many area in which to dine. When is comes to entertaining Bettina’s chef cooks incredible breakfast, lunch and dinner and can work around all your needs. We have been hiring this boat for over 5 years and we’ll definitely be coming back next year.
The Film Festival is off to a fabulous start with blue skies and bright sunshine. The guys from Timeless films are ready to face this prestigious event…
We now have availability for a new charter client on Bettina for this year’s TFWA World Exhibition, an exciting networking event for those in duty free and travel retail. The TWFA World Exhibition and Conference returns to the Palaise des Festival in Cannes at the end of September.
Held over 6 days, this event is an exciting and unique opportunity to network with over 3,000 different brands in the field. Delegates are available to find out what the latest innovations and developments in travel retail are, as well as make new business partners and reconnect with old ones.
Among those exhibiting will be companies from the wine, tobacco, fashion, gifts, fragrance, watches, jewellery and cosmetics industries. You will have an opportunity to mingle with exhibitors during a range of activities, whether that be during the conference and workshops, or perhaps at one of the more social events, which this year include sailing and golf among others.
Many of the companies attending Cannes Festivals have found out that they really stand out to the Festival Market Place when using a charter yacht berthed in the Old Port and located just steps away from the Palaise des Festival.
For Corporate Entertaining Motor Yacht Bettina can be used as a base for your Company with accommodation for your staff and catering for most clients’ requirements for Luncheons, Buffets, Dinners and Parties / Receptions.
Bettina can be utilised as the central meeting point for all your staff and clients alike, to get together and exchange information privately, especially during meal times which can be a big plus factor as is the possibility of branding the boat and a quayside tent to present a high profile image of your Company to the Festival Market Place.
