Lions Cannes 2021

Where to network


Lions lasts a week, which gives you plenty of scope for networking with other creatives. There are formal events in the conference programme, but you may also wish to organise you own. June lends itself to holding events al fresco – average temperatures are in the low twenties, which makes this a pleasant proposition.

There are the obvious venues – Cannes’ beach restaurants and restaurant terraces, which are all conveniently located for guests. And you may want to consider hosting in the garden and pool of your own villa. But why not reach further and make a real impression? Try dinner in a Provençal village square, or even a jaunt to Monaco or St Tropez. We at vca are passionate about Cannes and the South of France and can make recommendations that will make your event stand out.

vca can take all the organising off your hands – or we can work with your in-house hospitality team, too.


Restaurant Request



Restaurants and bars


Eat well

As destination managers in Cannes we make it our business to get to know all the restaurants, bars and eateries in town. When we find a place that meets our high standards in food and service, we forge a lasting relationship with the owner. If we recommend a beach restaurant, bar or a bistro, you can be sure that the welcome, the service, the food and the drink will be excellent.

There is a venue in Cannes for every budget, whether it’s a trendy bar for drinks and tapas or a more formal dining experience. The best places get booked up quickly, particularly during trade fairs, so if you want to feed and water a crowd of colleagues and associates, talk to vca – we’ll get you a table.




Gold service

Many of our clients find excellent value in the hospitality packages offered by Cannes’ hotels during Lions. With our year-round presence in Cannes and our strong relationships with the town’s hoteliers, we can often enhance the value you get from these packages, which might include, for example cocktails, canapés and meals.

The hotel option is best if you have a larger party – vca has organised events at Cannes hotels anything from thirty to 300 guests. Hotel venues offer plenty of scope for customisation, so ask us about our theming service, and we can also help you ensure it ties in with your branding.

You can rely on hotels for excellent service, and we only recommend venues that offer the best food and polished service.


Your own venue


An HQ in Cannes

Have you considered hosting an event in the villa where you are staying? Our hospitality organisers are experienced at working with clients to transform a living space into a sophisticated entertainment setting. Whether you want to hold a meeting, make a presentation or host a dinner party, talk to us. We can recommend accommodation that will impress your guests, and organise catering, tech support and décor.

Every year we get asked to organise events on yachts during trade fairs: the Old Port at Cannes is very conveniently located near the Palais. If hosting on a boat appeals to you and your colleagues, just ask and we can charter a static yacht for you, and organise all the other details, too!
