Berth on Quai d’Honneur for TFWA / Cannes Duty Free
For many attendees, a berth in Cannes Old Port / on the Quai d’Honneur during TFWA is a key motivation to charter a yacht at the event. A berth on Quai d’Honneur at TFWA means you are a stones throw from the Palais des Festivals. This is extremely convenient for executives sleeping on the yacht and event / meeting attendees, plus this offers huge brand exposure. Thousands of industry members walk along the Quai d’Honneur during TFWA, and all will see your branding on your luxury yacht charter.
Berths are limited to Cannes Duty Free attendees. As the Port Authorities control the berth application process, a charter contract must be signed before you can apply for a place in the Old Port. With years of experience completing this process, our team will manage this process so that you have the best chance of securing a berth if desired. Booking early is advised.
If a berth in the Old Port is not essential for your organisation, nearby Port Canto offers great facilities with less competition and lower cost. Port Canto is a 5 minute drive from the Palais des Festivals, or a 20 minute walk along the beautiful Croisette.
Host Events during your TFWA Yacht Charter
A yacht is a great venue to host events. With multiple, private spaces (the nature of meeting spaces on offer ranges from vessel to vessel) and first-class service from your private crew, yachts are excellent locations to host intimate meetings during the TFWA. Coupled with a berth next to the Palais, there are few options for hosting meetings that compare in terms of quality, service and convenience.
Capable of hosting much larger groups, a Tax Free World Exhibition yacht charter is a great option for hosting evening events. Popular events include cocktail parties, formal dinners, buffets, live music performances and key-note speeches.
If you would like to host events on-board during your Cannes Tax Free World Exhibition yacht charter, please inform our team of the nature of your events and the desired guest list size, and we will propose yachts and crews best suited to deliver.
