Cannes Lions 2018 Yacht Charters

The 65th Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity will run from 18th June to 22nd June 2018 at the Palais des Festivals and continue its reputation as one of the most popular events for yacht charters in Cannes.

By Rebecca Whitlocke • 12 December 2017
Cannes Lions is five days of talks, networking events, workshops, masterclasses and awards shows for people in the branded communications, marketing, media, entertainment, design and tech industries. Participants come to Cannes Lions to form corporate partnerships, foster new ideas and explore the power of creativity. Past speakers have included Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Brian Chesky (Airbnb), Daniel Ek (Spotify), Davis Lin (Tencent), Matthew Luhn (Pixar), Anna Wintour (Vogue/Condé Nast) and David Lubars (BBDO).

The Yacht Pass and Berth applications for Cannes Lions 2018

Each year, more than 4000 companies come to the event so it's vitally important to secure your Cannes Lions yacht charter well in advance as demand is high. Berth applications for Cannes Lions 2018 open on 18th December 2017 and they close in early March 2018.

The only way to ensure a yacht berth during Cannes Lions 2018 in the Vieux Port is by purchasing the 'Yacht Pass' through the event organisers. Yacht Passes are very limited due to capacity at the harbour, so we strongly recommend that you rent a yacht for Cannes Lions as soon as possible so our charter brokers can access the premium mooring positions and available yachts.

The Yacht Pass costs €25,000 excluding VAT and includes five complete Cannes Lions 2018 passes, so you can be assured that your charter yacht is moored in a prime position in the Vieux Port adjacent to the Palais venue.
