Attendance numbers at last week’s Cannes Yachting Festival tied the all-time high set in 2019, the last time the show was held due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Show management RX France reported 54,400 visitors during the six-day show, with 50 percent coming from abroad despite stringent health pass requirements for all exhibitors and attendees. (Masks were required for all in attendance, as well.)

“Our ambitious aim for the festival … was to do as well as the 2019 edition in terms of the number of exhibitors, boats and visitors,” said show director Sylvie Ernoult. “The number of boats presented as world previews was up by 10 percent, and the number of visitors was the same, which is very positive during this time.”

Ernoult continued: “This edition represented a real challenge at each stage of its organization. The more the opening date approached, the more we felt the motivation, enthusiasm and growing impatience of our exhibitors and visitors to meet up in Cannes again.”
