Event agency PREFERENCE EVENTS can organise your seminars in Cannes, on the French Riviera, and your incentive trips and conventions.

Cannes is like a jewel on the French Riviera, shining every year with its famous film festival, with cameras from all over the world pointed its way. Even with the stars, billionaires and personalities from the international jet set thronging on La Croisette, lined with Palaces and luxury boutiques, the capital of glamour has yet managed to retain its charm and authentic flavour. You simply need to amble along the narrow alleyways in the Suquet district, board a boat heading for the Lérins islands a short distance from the coast, or visit the hinterland to realise this.

Cannes is also a excellent starting point to explore the region and organise a day in Grasse with the perfume makers, visiting major museums of the region (Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Picasso Museum in Antibes, Fernand Léger Museum in Biot etc.) or the potteries in Vallauris. Not forgetting original team-building activities on the Lérins islands!

The wonderful range of hotels and sheer diversity of cultural, incentive and team-building activities available make the French Riviera a prime destination in France for the organisation of a distinguished corporate event. Your corporate seminar, board meeting, convention or incentive trip in Cannes is guaranteed to be a success!

Accommodation in Cannes

The hospitality offer in this beauty of the French Riviera is distinctive, being especially rich in huge-capacity luxury hotels. These all have plenty of facilities suitable for organising seminars, conventions, AGMs and incentive trips in Cannes. The auditoriums and other parts of the Palais des Festivals can also be used as backup for major conventions or AGMs in Cannes.
