By Hibah Noor

Delegates visiting this year’s TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes will have a change of scene as the main social events move to a new location at Port Canto.

The Opening Cocktail will take place at this new spacious venue, on Sunday, September 29 from 7.30pm. For the first time, all TFWA World Exhibition & Conference and TFWA Innovation Lab visitor and exhibitor badge-holders will be permitted entry to the Opening Cocktail free of charge, numbers permitting.

Entry will require presentation of a personal guest e-invitation, which replaces the printed invitation and will be issued shortly before the event. These admit one person only, and will include a barcode which is unique and personal to each guest. Those planning to attend are encouraged to arrive in good time.

Popular nightspot The Scene will this year be found at the new location of Port Canto. The Scene is open each night from Monday, September 30 to Thursday, October 3. TFWA would like to thank all of this year’s sponsors of The Scene.

Le Premium Evening, the industry’s gala dinner, will be held on Thursday, October 3. All those having reserved Full Delegate packages are invited to Le Premium Evening and will be offered entry to The Scene on the same night.

Alain Maingreaud, TFWA President, said: “We are thrilled to announce a truly outstanding line-up of social events for this year’s TFWA World Exhibition & Conference. With the headline events being held at the new Port Canto venue, we hope to create a relaxed and stress-free environment for delegates to socialize and broaden their networks during the week.

“The Opening Cocktail is now free of charge for visitor and exhibitor badge-holders, and we are expecting a high turnout for this top-flight travel retail diary date. As numbers will be limited by capacity, please arrive in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.”

A shuttle service will operate from all the major hotels, with further information on timings available at https://www.tfwa.com/tfwa-world-exhibition-conference/transport-services-100004741.
