It is hard to know on which foot to dance at the moment. The government is confining, deconfining and then gradually turning the screws, to such an extent that event organizing, and receptive agencies see their schedules change from hour to hour. Here is an update on the events scheduled in Nice and Cannes in October.
Cancelled, postponed and/or digitized
October’s flagship event in Cannes, MIPCOM (International Marketplace for Communication Programs), is one of the cancelled shows, or at least their physical version. The 2020 edition will be 100% digital from October 12 to 15.
The national congress of the association FCE (Women Entrepreneurs) which was to be held at Negresco from 8 to 10 October is postponed to 2021.
The DIANA project is also postponed to 2021, it will finally be on May 21 and 22 in the premises of the IPAG business school in Nice.
The PCI Security standards council congress, which all dates for 2020 are online, will therefore not be coming to Nice from 20 to 22 October.
The same applies to the CCFUO (Collège des Centres de Formation Universitaire en Orthophonie), which has chosen the e-congress on October 23 and 24.
GSE (Guide Share Europe) has finally opted for online conferences instead of the physical congress from October 26 to 29.
The aOS community (Azure, Office 365, SharePoint) prefers to be open: the show will take place on October 8 at the Epitech Nice premises and online.
The IARIA (International academy, Research and Industry Association) also leaves the choice to its participants: go to the Global Health and Nextech conferences at the Novotel Cap 3000 airport hotel, or attend online, from October 25 to 29.
Scheduled in October
The NICE (Nature inspires creativity engineers) conference will take place in Nice from 12 to 14 October, at the hotel Le Negresco.
The FHT (Food Hotel Tech) is also maintained on October 13 and 14 at the Mediterranean Area of the Acropolis.
The brand-new Hotel & Restaurant Meetings trade show will take place from October 20 to 22 at the Palais des Congrès et des Festivals de Cannes.
On October 24th will be held the congress Evidence and Practice for General Practitioners at the Acropolis Convention Center.
With more attendances than cancellations, the professional events sector hopes to hold out despite very difficult conditions for the organization of business trips, incentives or gala events.
