Like most events this year, ILTM organiser, Reed Exhibitions, has announced the postponement of the physical exhibition until next year. The good news however for participants, buyers and suppliers is that they will be able to meet via video conference 3 days a week for 3 weeks, in 3 regions of the world: the ILTM World Tour! Here are the dates:

– Asia-Pacific 17/18/19 November

– Europe, Middle East and Africa 23/24/25 November

– North and South America 1/2/3 December

In the meantime, if you want to organise a professional event for your company, Button Design remains at your disposal.


In our last article, we announced that Heavent Meetings would probably be postponed to early September! Final dates were recently announced by the organiser and the show will now take place on September 1st and 2nd, 2020.

This is good news, however the Cannes events calendar is further affected with the recently announced cancellation of the Tax Free World Association scheduled for September 27th to October 2nd.  This is mainly due to the knock on effect of the Corona virus on the travel industry.

Button Design remains positive and we hope that the Monaco Yacht Show, Cannes Yachting Festival, MAPIC and MIPCOM won’t be cancelled.

Thank you once again to all the medical staff, firefighters and all the people who worked in this epidemic crisis!

Button Design will soon have some good news to announce, so stay tuned !

Latest news since Emmanuel Macron’s speech

After the speech by the French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday April 13, Heavent Meetings announced that it will have to postpone the exhibit once again. It will probably take place at the start of the school year, discussions are underway between the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès and the organiser.

The 73rd edition of the Cannes Film Festival, which had been postponed to the end of June -beginning of July is now impossible.  It seems difficult to imagine how the Cannes Film Festival could now be scheduled this year in its original form. The Festival together with the City of Cannes and the film industry in general want to find solutions to promote the films of 2020. However, the Film Market which takes place at the same time as the Cannes Film Festival, has announced  that the exhibit will take place online from June 22 to 26, 2020. You will be able to attend speed meetings and conferences, visit virtual stands, etc…You can register you on their website !

We will update you on further developments on these three important Cannes markets in due course.

Button remains at your disposal for future requests, let’s hope things return to normality soon.
