THE YACHTING FESTIVAL CONFIRMS IT WILL BE HELD FROM 8 TO 13 SEPTEMBER IN CANNES!
CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL 2020 – The Yachting Festival, the first autumn show on the international calendar and the leading in-water even in Europe, will take place from 8 to 13 September 2020, in Cannes, at the Vieux Port and Port Canto.
“After many weeks of uncertainty in light of the context, intensive discussions with our clients, the City of Cannes, our partners and suppliers; and a great deal of work with local authorities, we are pleased to have reached the final stretch before the opening of the Festival,” explains Sylvie Ernoult, show manager.
In the very unique context of the Covid-19 pandemic, the boats and stands have been installed in accordance with a General Health and Safety Plan (PGSS) drawn up by the Festival and presented to the Prefecture, the City of Cannes and suppliers. This plan is based on the health measures recommended by UNIMEV (the professional federation of the events industry) and presented to the government, and the reference document that Reed Exhibitions Group has produced for all its trade shows internationally.
The PGSS, which in the next few days will be certified by a recognised independent body, aims to ensure compliance with current health standards to protect the health of those present within the trade show area. A point of contact has been appointed to check that the health protocol is implemented correctly before and during the event. This protocol includes flow management, Festival entrances, hand sanitiser distribution, the wearing of masks, constant cleaning of common areas and more. It will, of course, be adjusted as and when necessary in line with measures the French government may decide on with regards trade fairs.
