Networking opportunities at upcoming TFWA World Exhibition & Conference
Tax Free World Association (TFWA) has devoted its energies once again to the organization of social occasions at TFWA World Exhibition & Conference (18-23 October) which will help delegates to build their partnerships.
On Sunday 18 October those who have arrived in Cannes promptly can enjoy an energetic start on the TFWA Charity Run along the Croisette beginning at 8:30am. Participants can walk or run as many laps of the 1.5km circuit as they wish, provided that they make a 15 euro donation to TFWA Care.
Alternatively, the enjoyable Pétanque Tournament, which always proves to be hotly contested and much enjoyed by players of all abilities, will begin at 9.30am on the Place de l’Etang.
As usual, some delegates will choose the annual charity Golf Tournament, sponsored by Estee Lauder and Heinemann, teeing off at 9:00am on Sunday at the Old Course, Cannes Mandelieu Club.
Rounding off the day, the delightful Opening Cocktail on Sunday evening is always the most popular venue to meet up with friends old and new in charming surroundings at the Carlton Hotel starting at 19.30.
The social highlight will be Le Premium Evening in Port Canto on the outskirts of Cannes on Thursday 22, October. Montreal-based Cirque Eloize will present ‘Shadows and Light’, a stunning combination of music, movement, lighting and artistry designed to amaze and entertain the diners.
Renowned chef Davide Oldani will prepare a sumptuous interpretation of traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist. Oldani is the creator of ‘Cucina POP’ which was born from the desire to combine simplicity with high quality, and innovation with tradition. He is also an Ambassador for Expo Milano 2015, the Universal Exposition which is designed to be a platform for the exchange of ideas and shared solutions on the theme of food.
