TFWA outlines networking opportunities

By Doug Newhouse |

Tax Free World Association (TFWA) says this year’s TFWA World Exhibition will continue to offer the estimated 5,400 delegates and 440 exhibiting companies opportunities to network in ‘convivial surroundings’.

Pre-registration for this year’s TFWA World Exhibition opens on Monday September 19 in the Palais des Festivals, Cannes, preceded by the Opening Cocktail at the Palm Beach in Cannes on the evening of Sunday September 18. TFWA says this is ‘an ideal opportunity’ for delegates to meet colleagues and finalise plans for the week ahead.

Having said that, those participating in leisure events and activities on the Sunday will also have other networking opportunities. These include the annual Gebr. Heinemann/Estée Lauder Travel Value Golf Tournament at the Mandelieu Golf Club, jogging or hiking on the Ile St Marguerite sponsored by Eastpak, or a friendly game of pétanque on the place de l’Etang sponsored by Kipling.

New this year are the beach volleyball tournament on the plage de Macé in Cannes, sponsored by Jack Russell Malletier and two cultural activities: a perfume masterclass in the historic town of Grasse and a unique wine tasting experience at l’Abbaye de Lerins on the Ile St Honorat – guided by the monks who have been making wine there for 500 years.

After the four working days are over, TFWA says ‘the social highlight for many delegates’ will be Le Premium Evening on Thursday, September 22 when well-known singer-songwriter James Blunt will be the star attraction at an exclusive black-tie dinner concert in the Palm Beach.

This year, The Scene, TFWA’s popular private nightclub on the Riviera Beach, celebrates its 10th anniversary with special festivities. Delegates seeking fun and relaxation after business hours will be able to dance, socialise and network in this vibrant venue from 22.00 to 02.00 on Monday 19th through Thursday 22nd September.

TFWA advises that pre-registration for The Scene will open shortly at and passes can also be purchased on-site. Invitations to the Opening Cocktail and Le Premium Evening are part of the TFWA World Exhibition full delegate package for those who pre-register early.

To register for the golf, those interested should contact [email protected]. The orgnisers emphasise that players of all abilities are welcome to participate in the other leisure activities and they are invited to register with [email protected] now, as places are limited.
