Yachting festival

Aimed at professionals and open to the general public, the Cannes Yachting Festival brings together the players in the international yachting market, from the builder or importer of sailing boats or yachts to the designer of marine clothing or the specialised press, not forgetting the equipment manufacturer, the service company (brokerage, insurance) or the yacht owners' association.

The 35th edition in 2012 brought together 438 exhibitors (222 national and 216 international) and 45,155 visitors.

The largest in-water show in Europe, offering sea trials, and the first event in the international nautical calendar, it takes place in three locations, the Vieux-Port of Cannes, the Port Pierre-Canto and the Espace Riviera of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, during six days in mid-September.
