As announced on Saturday and following the decision by the French Government to cancel all events of more than 5000 participants in a restricted area, Reed MIDEM has decided to postpone MIPIM in the interest of the well-being of its clients.
The exhibition will now take place from June 2 to 5, 2020.
Spirit of Solidarity
Most of the service providers and local businesses have confirmed their willingness to transfer orders to the new dates without additional fees.
What is happening this week ?
Button Design has been to the Palais and as you can see from the photos, despite being completed and ready, the tented area around the Palais is deserted.
What’s next for the city of Cannes ?
- Work is continuing on the Croisette and the beaches under construction will soon be finished as scheduled.
- The municipality are taking measured precautions to protect the population visitors and city hall employees, these include :
- Availability of gel hand sanitizers in public areas.
- Signage to indicate directions to hand washing facilities for those preferring not to use gel based products.
- Additional cleaning and disinfection programme in all high traffic areas and use of appropriate cleaning and disinfection equipment and products.
Button Design will be updating the evolution of the situation here in Cannes and France in general.
