Cannes, in the south of France is a sexy place, and you should organise your corporate event in the Riviera for this exact reason. Cannes is one of the hottest towns for incentives, even better than St Tropez which is just too small and a killer for traffic. We enjoy Cannes, as it has glamour, sparks, many activities to do, many great hotels, and the beach. But we should warn you, an event in Cannes is expensive, so if you want to do something in one of the sexiest place in France, be prepared to spend. Below are the key points in favour of Cannes:
Great hotels: Cannes has some of the best hotels in the world. The Carlton, The Majestic or The Martinez are classics and classy. They host most of the big stars during the film festival. For those who want something with a twist, the 3:14 delivers that, with a rooftop pool and a great lounge bar. There are other hotels, but those are the best. They also have great meetings and conference rooms, all very well equipped so that you can work efficiently and peacefully.
Nightlife: this is one of the reasons to travel to Cannes. There are many clubs, bars, lounge bars, all very exciting. Our favourite is the Baoli, at the end of the pier, which has indoor and outdoor areas. You can have dinner there, and the food is excellent. The restaurants transforms into a night club around 11pm and that is usually the time when the beautiful and rich flock en masse to the Baoli. It is a great place to party, and where they host some of the best parties during the Cannes Film festival. You should also have dinner on the beach. Many of the great hotels have a private beach with a restaurant, and this one of the best ways to unwind after a day of work. As a destination management company in France, we open all the doors for you.
Activities: if you wish to take some time off work and do something, Cannes is a great place as it offers diverse activities. You have the sea, the mountains are not far. You can decide to rent a yacht for a day, venture off the coast to go swim with dolphins. You can also decide to rent a few supercars and enjoy driving to Monaco for a nice lunch on the harbor. Grasse is not far, and there you can visit some perfume makers, and even create your very own perfume. For those who want a more sportive approach, try cycling in the mountains, or rafting (early spring only), unless you prefer to try out some of the via ferratas.
There are so many things to do in and around Cannes. This is a great place to organise your corporate event, seminar or incentive, but again, be prepared to spend.
