Cannes Yachting Festival To Go Ahead 1

The organisers of the 2020 Cannes Yachting Festival have confirmed that the show will go ahead as planned from September 8-13.

"The aim is to open the Yachting Festival 2020 in such a way as to allow the event to be held in the best possible conditions and in full compliance with the protection of exhibitors and visitors," say Reed Expositions in a statement made to media earlier today.

“To this end, we are currently reviewing a specific organisation of visitor queues, the installation of markings on the ground, a counting and/or flow regulation system (in the aisles, quays, stands and on board the boats), the wearing of masks, the provision of hydro-alcoholic gel and increased daily disinfection of the areas through which visitors pass,” the statement continues.

It is the 43rd edition of Europe’s largest in-water event. Organisers say they are complying in full with new health measures put in place to restrict the spread of Covid-19, and are participating in work done by Unimev, the professional federation of the events industry, to confirm protective measures for trade fairs that will be submitted to the French government.
