Cannes Yachting Festival

When? 6-11th September

Where? Cannes, France

Our team will be attending Cannes Yachting Festival, the leading in-water yachting show in Europe from 6-9th September 2022.

As the first show in the boating season, it will be located across Vieux Port, one of the oldest harbours in the French Riviera and Port Canto, which is located on the other side of the Croisette and hosts the sailing area to welcome sailing boats, monohulls and multihulls.

Since 1977, the shows prestigious reputation and beautiful location has attracted exhibitors from across the industry, including shipyards, brokers, lawyers and insurance firms from around the globe. It also serves a purpose for local businesses selling yachting accessories and equipment, and a selection of luxury goods and crafts aimed to the High Net Worth market.

Cannes Yachting Festival has undertaken a sustainable approach this year, by setting up a ‘Green Route’ zone, demonstrating the exhibitors eco-high performance solutions. The show has also adopted sustainable practices by implementing many actions in the coming year to reduce its environmental impact.
