Cannes 2019 TFWA & Yacht Charter Options
What to expect at TFWA
This year’s Tax Free World Exhibition & Conference runs from 29 September to 4 October and will be held in Cannes’ Palais des Festival. The first day promises a number of leisure activities perfect for easing you into the conference and practising those networking skills. Sporty guests can look forward to the Royal Mougins TFWA Golf Tournament, e-biking around the beautiful coastal tracks of the French Riviera or competitive sailing around the Bay of Cannes, while more gentle activities include a tour of the International Perfume Museum, open-air yoga or the classic Provençal pass time, pétanque. Then, as dusk sets, head to Port Canto for a cocktail reception. Catch up with industry peers and build your network as you take dazzling views of the Med and a stunning firework display.
The rest of the week means serious business, with a broad selection of conferences, workshops and ONE2ONE meetings with the industry’s leaders. Highlights include the Inflight Focus workshop, which will discuss how in-flight shopping can be modernised to make it more appealing, and the Digital Focus session, set to look at the importance of digitalisation. If you need to blow off some steam, The Scene will be back every night from Monday to Thursday, promising a lively 60’s-themed bash at which attendees can let loose. The penultimate night will also see a black tie event take place at Port Canto, with sumptuous cuisine, incredible musicians and eye-catching performances.
