The French Riviera and Monaco has a calendar full of events and festivals throughout the year, including globally well-known events such as the Monte-Carlo Formula One Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival, and Monaco Yacht Show. Here is a list of some of the major events the Côte d’Azur has to offer for 2018.
The Monaco Yacht Show is one of the most prestigious yachting events in the world with more than 125 superyachts and nearly 600 companies exhibiting each year.
Held annually towards the end of September, Monaco Yacht Show is the most anticipated meet in the superyacht industry's calendar and allows world-leading yacht builders and designers, luxury manufacturers and esteemed brokerage houses to mingle with important clientele and potential customers.
Running for more than 25 years, the show is the only opportunity to admire, visit and purchase more than 120 one-off superyachts in one place. Spread across Monaco’s iconic Port Hercules, the four-day event is the setting for around 45 new launches, with room to accommodate yachts of over 100 metres.
In 2017, a brand new exhibition space dedicated to the superyachting lifestyle known as Starboard was introduced, alongside a brand new exhibition area devoted entirely to the trendiest luxury tenders and water toys on the market.
The free bus and boat shuttles, and golf cart network make getting around the show hassle-free or, for a more personal experience, courtesy cars are provided for multi-pass badge holders. Future superyacht owners and charterers can also take advantage of the VIP Sapphire Experience.
