TFWA World Exhibition reveals action-packed social events line-up


TFWA has unveiled an extensive social events and leisure activities program for its flagship TFWA World Exhibition, which will take place at the Palais des Festival, Cannes, between October 1 and 6, 2017.
The Opening Cocktail, at Carlton Beach at 7.30pm on Sunday, will give delegates the chance to network in a beach setting. At the end of the evening, delegates will be treated to a firework display over the bay, provided by the city of Cannes.
The Scene nightclub is set in a laid-back beach location with DJs providing after-hours entertainment every night from Monday to Thursday. “We would like to thank all our sponsors of The Scene,” said TFWA.
The grand finale to the week will be Le Premium Evening, a glamorous black tie event held at Port Canto on Thursday evening. Delegates will enjoy musical entertainment from internationally renowned singer and impressionist Véronic DiCaire after a gala dinner, which will begin at 8pm.
Kicking off the week’s leisure activities program on Sunday is the Golf Tournament held in partnership with Estée Lauder at the Cannes Mandelieu Golf Club. Coaches for registered participants to this popular event will run from the Majestic Hotel from 7.30am. 
TFWA would like to thank Valrhona for sponsoring polo shirts, golf caps and breakfast for the Golf Tournament, Eden Park for sponsoring the course flag, and Moroccanoil, Pourchet and Kremlin Award Grand Premium Vodka for sponsoring the lunch buffet. 
Also on Sunday is a charity run along the Croisette at 8.30am, beginning in front of the Carlton Hotel. “Spectators and supporters are always welcome and all proceeds will go to SAMU Social of Cannes, a charity that helps the homeless,” said TFWA.
The Regatta, sponsored by Paul & Shark, will take place in the Bay of Cannes at 8.30am. Participants will enjoy racing, an onboard picnic lunch and post-race swim, weather permitting. 
After a successful introduction last year, delegates can prepare body and mind with an hour of yoga on Sunday morning at the Majestic Hotel jetty at 9.30am, sponsored by Rituals. 
Sunday morning’s Pétanque Tournament at 9.30am moves to a new venue this year. Delegates will gather at Allée de la Liberté Charles de Gaulle, just in front of the Palais des Festivals, before enjoying a post-match lunch at the Grand Café.
To mark the addition of TFWA Digital Village to this year’s program, an Opening Cocktail will be held at Cannes’ Majestic Hotel on Tuesday, October 3 at 7.30pm.
