This year’s Cannes International Boat Show has been rescheduled so as not to disrupt security planning for the G20 Summit in November.
According to event organiser Reed Exhibitions, the show will now take place from September 6-11 at the quays of the Vieux Port and Port Pierro Canto, as well as the Expace Riviera exhibition hall.
The show was originally scheduled to run from September 7-12.
The change of dates is a direct consequence of the G20 being held in the city of Cannes, says Reed Exhibitions, as the scope of the security plan for the G20 involves the requisitioning of the city’s entire sea front, beginning in October.
“This change of dates is important, even if it does not call into question the foundations of the Festival,” says show manager Renaud Jourdon. “The essential thing was to keep the six days of exhibition, including a whole weekend, to allow visitors to take full advantage of this exclusive event.”
