Here is a brief listing of some of the prestigious events we cover:
Cannes Film Festival (May)
The most glamorous international film festival in the world has been held in Cannes, France since 1946. The invitation-only event runs for a week (usually in May) at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès and hosts celebrities, dignitaries and other VIP’s in town to view the festival’s selected films. When not at the numerous film viewings, guests spend their time at lavish parties either on land or via luxury yacht.
Monaco Grand Prix (May)
This exciting Formula One motor race is held each year on the Circuit de Monaco. Running since 1929, it is considered by many to be one of the most important automobile races in the world. The race runs around the narrow streets of the tiny principality of Monaco, with many tricky turns along the way – making it one of the most dangerous but exciting races to witness. In fact, it is the only Grand Prix that does not follow the mandated minimum race distance that is obligatory to all other related races.
This Mediterranean keel boat race, named after the island of Giraglia, has been held annually since 1953. Its organizers include the Yacht Club Italiano in conjunction with the Yacht Club de France and the Société Nautique de Saint-Tropez.The name of this popular event was changed to the ‘Rolex Cup’ in 1997, when the luxury watch company became its main sponsor. The regatta includes a week of races followed by a main event beginning in St. Tropez, France and concluding in Genoa, Italy.
Other notable events during the summer/ fall season includes the Festival du Film Publicitaire / Lions (June), Venice Film Festival – Biennale, MIPCOM (October) and MAPIC (November).
