MIPIM - The Global Urban Festival
10-14 March 2025
Palais des Festivals, Cannes, France

MIPIM harbour access

During MIPIM, the Jetée Albert Edouard (JAE) will be privatized.

Gates will delimit the privatized area with an access control, as for all other entry point of the MIPIM zone. We kindly ask you to respect rigorously this organisation.

  • MIPIM delegates can access the private harbour upon presentation of their badge.
  • Yacht crew members, extra staff, yacht brokers and caterers must have a "Harbour" badge in order to access this private zone.

We draw your attention to the fact that MIPIM prohibits participants and exhibitors from engaging in activities that are identical or similar to those conducted at MIPIM (notably to participate in any meeting with professionals not registered to MIPIM), the immediate surrounding area or in any other exhibition area that MIPIM may designate, during the period of the event.

The yachts should not be assimilated with stands and can only be used for accommodation or social events purposes.

Opening hours of the privatized zone

Access to the JAE with mandatory badge:

  • From March 11, 2025 to March 13, 2025: 7.30 - 18.00

During these opening hours, the harbour access will be exclusively reserved for MIPIM badges and Harbour badges holders.

Building of temporary structures on JAE

Please complete the Yacht Registration form for crew members to describe any temporary installations (and their additional elements such as structures, tents, etc…).

We kindly ask you to attach to this form any corresponding technical files, formally certified by an office of control (in particular stability, wind resistance, weighting, systems of attachment and any related calculations) and not to obstruct traffic on the pier. All installations on the quay must comply with the Cannes Harbour Quai d’Honneur procedure version QH V 5.6.1 from September 14, 2022.

We inform you that an on-site Office of Control will validate the conformity of the installations carried out on the harbour. Consequently, you will be in charge of carrying out, any modifications requested by the Office of Control so that the temporary structures can remain up during the exhibition. If no changes occur, you will be asked to proceed with the breakdown of the concerned temporary structures.

Please also note that with the exception of allowed temporary structures, any other installations are strictly forbidden on the JAE (i.e: standing panels, leaflets, fences, models, platforms, carpeting, tables, sofas, chairs and any other furniture or signage). The on-site Office of Control will proceed with strict control during MIPIM and will require prohibited installations to be immediately removed or dismantled.
