Cannes Collection: All Your Heart Desires

Cannes Collection is a brand new show, debuting in June 2016, conceived by friends and collaborators Bertrand Foache and Eric de Saintdo, both renowned for putting on international shows such as Premier Classe, Who’s Next, Fame and the Cannes Boat & Yacht Show.

Cannes Collection is based on evolving notions of luxury and hopes to inspire and delight a discerning, global clientele who seek convenience, speed and service as well as world-class quality and performance.

Here you will find yachts from 20m to 60m, private planes, helicopters, prestige cars and motorcycles, art, property, travel, objets d’art and more…a selection of the very best brands and finest products carefully curated in one of the worlds most beautiful cities. 

Held from 2 - 5 June, Cannes Collection is scheduled to run immediately after the famous Cannes film festival and the Monaco Grand Prix, two landmark events that draw the eyes of the watching world and which, for many visitors to the Riviera, represent the beginning of the Summer Season.

In fact everything at Cannes Collection will be available to try and to buy, lease or order right away to enjoy over the coming summer. A concept summed up in the show’s rallying cry— ‘WANT IT NOW? HAVE IT NOW!’

Cannes Collection will be held around the famous Old Port in Cannes, a unique and iconic location in a city that already hosts some of the most important shows in the world, boasting as it does a beautiful harbor and bay, fantastic hotels, restaurants, bars and nightlife.

At the show itself, an exclusive network of sector experts and specialists will be on hand to offer advice and insight including:

  • Eric de Saintdo, former organizer of the Cannes Yacht Show
  • Michel de Rohozinski, President of Azur Hélicoptères
  • La Squadra, Agency specialists in experiential car marketing who manage all test drives during ‘Le Mondial de l’Automobile’ in Paris
  • Romain Rea, Horology expert, retained by the auction house Artcurial

A visit to Cannes Collection promises to be a truly unforgettable experience with the opportunity to try many of the fabulous items showcased. Sail a yacht out into the Bay of Cannes and see how she performs on the open water or take a beautiful car for a spin with an experienced driver at your side. Take a trip over the old town of Cannes in a helicopter or peruse impeccable timepieces and stunning contemporary art in one of the modern pavilions.

A number of auctions of exceptional and rare pieces will be held during the show culminating with a charity dinner in support of The Womanity Foundation, created and chaired by Yann Borgstedt, whose mission is to improve the access to quality education, training and empowerment for disadvantaged girls and women.

Cannes Collection runs from 2 - 5 June, 2016. Further information is available at www.cannes-collection.com
