Leisure activities

To complement the social events in Cannes, a selection of activities gives delegates the chance enjoy some Côte d’Azur sunshine before the formal start of TFWA World Exhibition & Conference. From yoga by the ocean or a gentle game of pétanque to a brisk jog along the Croisette, there’s something to suit all energy levels.

Charity Run

Croisette, Cannes

Sunday 1 October
08.30 - La Croisette, Carlton Hotel

Flex those leg muscles for a deserving cause with a turn along Cannes’ famous seafront Croisette. In return for a €15 donation, which TFWA gives to a local charity, you get to walk, jog or run around a looped course and take in some gorgeous sea views. Participants can enter either individually or in teams, while spectators and supporters are always welcome.




Sunday 1 October

Bay of Cannes
Coach departs from the Majestic Hotel at 08:30

Another innovation from 2016 returns due to delegate demand. Under the expert eye of a skipper, several teams each crew a yacht for a morning of competitive racing in the Bay of Cannes. Participants get to decide on strategy and tactics, with the prospect of a picnic lunch on board and post-race swim if the weather allows.

09.30 - Majestic Hotel jetty

After a highly successful debut last year, our yoga guru returns to lead another hour’s gentle stretching and breathing on the Majestic Hotel jetty over the bay. Contemplate the waves as you prepare mind and body for the coming week, then fortify yourself with a detox breakfast.

Provence’s favourite pastime, enthusiastically embraced by duty free and travel retail, moves to a new venue near the Palais des Festivals for 2017.

1/ Beware of fraudulent accommodation providers
It has come to our attention that unknown third parties are calling exhibitors and visitors, supposedly on behalf of TFWA, to enquire about hotel rates or to acquire information about hotel bookings.
Please be aware that TFWA is making no such approaches to exhibitors and visitors on this issue and we strongly recommend that you exercise extreme caution should you be contacted in this way.
Who are they?
Show participants have reported falling victim to fraudulent accommodation providers using names such as
Corporate Booking Services - CBS International, Global Housing Services, Corp., Gold Exhibitions, EU Convention Bureau, stareventz.net, Concierge Plus Group, Global Living Group, The Ultimate Living Group, Riviera Network, Business travel International, Expo Travel Group, Splendor Global, Universal Shows, Universal Events, Premier Destinations, Euro-Events, Biz Trade Shows, Go Fair Ltd, World Expo Plus, Expo Pros, Euro Concierge Net, Capital Exhibitions, Originata Events or Euro Events Expo (this is not an exhaustive list).
How can you avoid these frauds?
Before making any commitment with an unknown accommodation provider, we recommend that you:
- Check thoroughly all documentation from the provider. In France, all property rental and travel agencies must be licensed and hold a bank guarantee and civil liability insurance. These details must appear on all company documentation including the website. 
- Be wary of our logos on accommodation providers’ websites. The TFWA name and event titles are sometimes used unlawfully.
- Book through our exclusive hotel booking platform where you can benefit from special hotel rates.
How do the frauds work?
- A fraudulent venture repeatedly emails our show participants with accommodation offers for the event.
- Their website and/or emails feature our show name and logos, creating an impression of authenticity.
- They promote attractive deals with local accommodation providers.
- Once payment has been received, the ‘company’ generally disappears and can no longer be contacted.
Please also note that bookings made through the official hotel reservation platform are absolutely secure.
2/ Beware of the fraudulent listing services "Expo guide" and "International Fairs Directory"
We would also like to warn exhibitors, should they be contacted by companies named "Expo Guide" or "International Fairs Directory", that they are online listing services and are in no way affiliated with TFWA or its official exhibition guide. The use of our association name and show name by these companies has been made without our authorization. We therefore urge exhibitors to be cautious and encourage them to contact us when receiving these types of solicitations from unfamiliar sources.
