Palais des Festivals, Cannes
MAPIC, the meeting place for the world’s most influential retail real estate thinkers and doers, takes place every November for three action-packed days at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France.
Established in 1995, MAPIC has been at the forefront of the retail revolution for more than two decades. It is the leading event for key property players from more than 80 countries to build the ultimate retail and leisure mix in order to create lifestyle destinations.
More than 2,500 retailers can be expected each year, meeting with developers, cities and investors to set up their shops and expand. Developers, on the other hand, will not only find investors and new tenants but also innovative and entertaining solutions to increase footfall and dwell time.
Visitors can expect an extensive event space, with 800 plus companies exhibiting across three international exhibition halls, as well as a world-class programme of conferences hosted by industry leaders, who will share their expertise and insight.
There is also a wealth of networking opportunities to participate in, including focused matchmaking sessions. The MAPIC Awards, rewarding excellence, innovation and creativity in the retail estate industry, form a crucial part of the programme too and are awarded in a prestigious gala ceremony.
Given MAPIC’s location in Cannes, it is common practice for businesses to rent a charter yacht and berth in the nearby Old Port. It can then be used as a base from which to do business.
The conference is an unrivalled opportunity to increase international exposure, showcase projects and solutions, and pinpoint potential partners, and there could be no better way to make a good impression and wow contacts than from the luxurious surrounds of a superyacht.
Opt for a yacht with fantastic entertaining capabilities and it will be possible to host a variety of corporate events on board, from meetings to lunches to formal dinners to glittering superyacht parties.
Plus, through the use of custom banners and other decorations, a yacht can be heavily branded to give your company unrivalled levels of exposure.

Famed for its Fifties status as a millionaires playground and the glittering annual film festival, it still retains the charm, glamour and allure of its heyday.
