It is recommended that you book your MIPIM accommodations now. MIPIM attracts significantly more attendees than there are available hotel rooms, so book as early as possible and plan to be flexible with hotel options. MIPIM provides booking services and other practical information here. If booking through MIPIM, you will not be able to confirm a hotel booking until you have submitted your registration form with payment.
Airbnb and HomeAway are comparable alternatives and may have more affordable options. Travelers may also want to consider staying in Nice (approximately 30 minute train ride to Cannes) for traditional hotel amenities without the Cannes prices.
Taxi and bus service are available along with Uber. Cannes is a very walk-friendly city and walking is encouraged to avoid traffic during MIPIM. If staying in Nice and commuting to Cannes by train, please ensure your end destination is the Cannes Station. The train commute from Nice is approximately 30 minutes and the Gare de Cannes Station is about a 7 minute walk to the Palais de Festivals. Train tickets may be reserved here.
Cannes is a popular tourist destination and English is widely spoken. Nevertheless, brushing up on simple French phrases (e.g., Bonjour for good day or Merci for thank you) is a nice gesture. Most importantly, know the correct pronunciation of Cannes!
Professional business attire is expected at MIPIM.
