The news of the cancellation of the Cannes Yachting Festival is not a surprise. This week, the French government extended its ban on mass gatherings of over 5,000 people and, unfortunately, the French Boat Show, with its 30,000 visitors, was fully within this range.
The decision is due and responsible, considering that the only Cannes Yachting Festival operators are more than 3,000. The cancellation of the event falls within the area of responsibility of the Prefect of Cannes, who was rightly adamant about this decision.
In the next hours, an official press release will be issued by Red Exhibitions, the world’s leading company in the organization of trade fairs which, every year, organizes events with over 7 million visitors all over the world.
The next international boat show scheduled is that of Genoa which, also thanks to its structure, is s for now confirmed, supported by the last ministerial decree that, while on the one hand has closed discos, on the other has confirmed the possibility of holding trade fairs.
The Genoa Boat Show is scheduled to take place from Thursday 1 to Tuesday 6 October 2020.
