MIPIM 2018 - 13-16 March 2018
Charter yachts go hand in hand with MIPIM – they provide the perfect venue for client entertainment, accommodation and networking. Chartering a yacht for MIPIM can help to boost your company’s exposure on an international stage. Here at Boatbookings, we have years of experience in finding the right yacht for your company, securing a valuable berth and planning your dinners, events and cocktail parties. We also have a local office, enabling us to be on-hand at every stage.
We have a wide variety of day boats, party boats and water taxis to help you fulfil all of your MIPIM needs in style. We welcome all enquires about yachts for MIPIM entertainment, accommodation or events.
Remember, to ensure you get the best boat and the best berth in the port of Cannes, we should plan your MIPIM charter at least 10 months in advance. Most companies book their boats for the following year at the end of the conference, and by November there is a waiting list for the port, for the following March. Get in touch now to start planning MIPIM 2019.
MIPIM is a conference for senior-level decision makers within the real estate market who want to develop business within their domestic and international markets. It is held yearly at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France, and attended by many key players in the industry, from investors to end-users and local governments to international corporations. They claim a years worth of business in 4 intense days, even more of a reason to let your hair down in the evening with a glass of bubbly at the many yacht parties!
The supporting industries also attend, including the world's leading banks, law firms, investment houses and insurers - in short anything to do with property. Cannes takes on a buzzing atmosphere due to the constant receptions, parties and dinners.
The formal program takes place in the illustrious Palais des Festivals - the main convention center in Cannes where the Film Festival is also held. The Palais is right next to the Old Port of Cannes and it is a long standing practice to charter a Super Yacht and use it to attract and entertain clients. It is an impressive sight to see many of the world's most opulent Super Yachts lined up along the Jetée Edouard Albert, adorned with the branding of the show’s exhibitors.
However, yacht charter at MIPIM is not restricted to Super Yachts at the port. Exhibitors and Show Attendees book yachts for a range of purposes, from accommodation, to entertainment yachts for parties and meetings of 10 to 100!
Chartering for Entertainment
The most impressive way to gain exposure for your company at MIPIM is to charter a large yacht that is suitable for entertaining and apply for a berth. Your brand becomes associated with the class and elegance of Super Yachts.
These spacious and luxurious yachts are ideal for hosting events, parties or team building activities. Their lavish interior and generous exterior provide the perfect platform for meetings or social events. A Super Yacht is the ultimate way to impress and reward clients and employees. Spaces are limited and competition is fierce. To gain your spot, you will need to book your charter early (ideally right after the show in March, but well before the cutoff in September) and get the extensive application into the Port Authority. We will work with you to put in the application to the Port Authority in Cannes and obtain all of the paperwork. Berths are given out on a first come first served basis, so don't miss the boat!
If you just want to put on a flashy event for your customers, you might consider chartering a yacht for just a day.There are some amazing yachts that specialize in events, and are happy to work with you to accomplish any event objective. These boats can be anchored or cruise around the Riviera, depending on your preferences. Note - if you will be cruising with more than 12 people, the boat requires a special license due to safety regulations. We can recommend which boats are suitable for this kind of event.
Cannes hotels fill up every year more than 6 months prior to MIPIM, and often attendees are forced to commute from Nice or other nearby towns. Instead of wasting time on the heavily congested roads, each year many of our clients choose to stay on a boat (sail or motor). That way you're situated right in the middle of the show for a very reasonable price. You can stay in the Old Port, just near the Palais, or Port Canto on the other end of the Croisette near some of the most exclusive night clubs.
Chartering for a Day Cruise
A yacht charter needn't be a week long to make an impression, one day will suffice! If you want to entertain a small group or just get away from it all and cruise the French Riviera, we can easily arrange that! Boats starting at €500 can be rented quite easily and we'd be happy to recommend a suitable itinerary, such as to St Tropez or Monaco. Furthermore, a day charter is a perfect venue for a meeting. Charter a luxurious yacht for a day to get employees out of the office in stunning surroundings where you can get creative and motivated together on your memorable day out on the water.
