The complementarity of our different services and businesses serving the cinema industry

The 75th Festival de Cannes took place from 17 to 28 May 2022. The GL events Group has been working with the Festival de Cannes since 1988. As a long-standing partner, it draws on the diversity and complementarity of its different areas of expertise to serve the “7th art”:
-    Structures and grandstands
-    Layout and fittings
-    Power
-    Stands
-    Audiovisual services
-    Signage
-    Furniture
-    Hospitality staffing

GL events, a major provider of furniture to the Festival 

The Group also provided furniture for many areas of the Festival de Cannes. It took GL events' teams 16 days to install the furniture in the different areas, from the Café des Palmes to the journalists' terrace. Notably, Maison Vachon, a subsidiary of the GL events Group, decorated the lounge area of the Plage des Palmes.

Structures to match the prestige of Festival

Several structures were built especially for this year’s 75th Festival. This involved dealing with many technical constraints. In particular, our teams had to build a 600m² movie theatre on the roof of the Palais des Festivals. This took 17 days to assemble, with more than 30 people involved, across all the specialist trades.
