Cannes 2021

Where to network


Midem brings to Cannes music publishers, artist managers and people from labels and rights societies and tech companies with its networking opportunities and busy social scene.

At the Palais you can meet music industry professionals at panels or even during five-minute speed networking events. You can take advantage of matchmaking sessions, and business breakfasts, lunches and dinners. There are also plenty of networking opportunities during the live music shows and awards ceremonies in the evening.

You may also want to organise your own event to ensure that the food, venue and setting are just the way you want them.

For a bespoke experience call on vca, experts in hospitality and event management during Cannes trade shows like Midem.


Restaurant Request



Restaurants and bars


Eat together

The best bars, restaurants and cafes in Cannes fill up quickly during Midem, so we recommend you book to ensure you get a good table.

vca have been attending trade shows at Cannes for many years and we know most of the local eating places. We have a select few that we recommend because we can vouch for the quality of the food and drink and the service. Tell us what ambiance you’re looking for, and we’ll get you the perfect table. If there’s a live music act on the Midem Beach that you particularly want your party to catch, let us know and we’ll make sure you have enough time to eat.

We make a token charge for recommendations and reservations.




A bit of polish

Hotels are a good choice for event planners during Midem because you can be certain of good food and polished service. They are ideal if you want to offer your guests lunch or dinner with cocktails and canapes.

We run events in Cannes all year round and we have strong relationships with many of Cannes’ top hotels, which means we can be sure of getting you the right venue for your guests at Midem, whether you want to welcome 30 or 300.

Our hospitality planners can help you with branding and theming, too, so that you can transform a hotel venue into the perfect setting for your event. We can also get whatever you need in the way of AV equipment.


Your own venue


Your Midem HQ

Many of our clients ask us to support them with hospitality and planning services for events held in their own accommodation. This can be a cost-effective way of entertaining – and it allows you to welcome guests to a venue where you feel at home. We can recommend adaptable accommodation that can transform from a living space to a work space to a party venue.

Our event organisers can help you host a dinner party in an apartment or a party in a villa – just ask. We’ve even put together events on board yachts. We will help you pick the best local suppliers for food, drink and furniture. We can also organise theming and branding and if you need transport or security, we can sort that out, too.
