Bettina available for the TWFA World exhibition – Cannes 2019

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.

Surely there is no better way to attend a Cannes Festival Event….. For more details on planning a corporate charter at a 2019 conference, contact us today.

Fireworks This week in Cannes

History –

Since 1967, the bay of Cannes is strongly linked with colours and sounds of fireworks. There are all the time novelty and technical improvements which let us enter in an outdoor show where all the ages can find pleasure.

The International Cannes Fireworks Festival is inked in the memories of strong emotion and gorgeous display fans, but also in the history of pyrotechnicians, creators of pyrotechnical events.
Security Rules and precise organisation have to be respected by us. The Working rhythm imposed to the pyrotechnicians is hard: Working at night, imagination, creativity… The competition for the Vestal, the Jury Prize and the Public Prize are the main axes of the Festival and the pyrotechnicians. Of course, the reception and the organisation of the public is not forgotten, in fact, it is the real value of the Festival: the mix between artists and public.
