If you like the idea of e-biking along the Cote d’Azur or a visit to the International Perfume Museum in Grasse, take a look at the leisure activities for delegates on the opening Sunday. There’s also golf, rooftop yoga, pétanque and a yacht regatta. Places are limited and registration is now open, so book soon to avoid missing out.
TFWA World Conference has a history of attracting high-profile speakers, and this year's event continues that trend. The Rt. Hon. Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1997-2007, will be in Cannes to share his thoughts on the current state of global affairs. A major player on the geopolitical stage, he'll offer delegates some fascinating insights on today's key issues.
The Exhibition will host TFWA Innovation Lab (1-4 October) in a tented space opposite the Majestic Beach. This new initiative brings together around 30 specialists in digital solutions and mobile technology, sustainability and CSR, traveller services, in-store design and research. A workshop entitled ‘Innovation in Action’ at 9am on 1 October gets things underway.
Cannes’ social centre of gravity shifts to a new location this year. Sunday’s Opening Cocktail, The Scene and Le Premium Evening on Thursday all take place among the superyachts at the Port Canto. With more space for socialising, this marina venue will see the conviviality hit new highs.
