Accommodation in Cannes

✔ Accommodations & Fraud

There are a number of lodging possibilities in Cannes in close proximity to the Marché. You can find and consult a list of hotels at the Cannes Tourism Office.

For hotels, please consult bNetwork, which offers a secure and convenient booking platform for Cannes accommodations.

For apartments, please contact our official partner Immosol, who offers apartments with hotel services within your budget.

Beware of fraudulent accommodation providers.

Marché participants have reported falling victim to fraudulent accommodation providers presenting themselves under names such as: Allen & Stratton Events, Business Travel International, Cannes Event, Capital Exhibitions, Concierge PLus group, Europ Concierge Net, Euro Events, Euro Events Expo, Expos-International, Expo Travel Group, Global Living Group, ITC Today, Krystel Karam International, Originata Event, Premier Destinations, Riviera Luxury Limousines, Riviera Network, Splash Ilc, Splendor, Splendor Global, Star Eventz, The Ultimate Living Group, Universal Event Solutions Limited, Universal Show.

If you receive requests or notifications from any of the aforementioned, please be extremely careful. For all of your lodging reservations, we strongly recommend that you book with one of our partners to avoid fraud.

How do the frauds work?

  • A fraudulent venture repetitively emails the participants with offers (apartment, hotel, room, transportation… )
  • Their website and/or emails mention the Marché du Film, Festival de Cannes, or the Palme d’Or name and logo, creating what looks like a trustworthy environment.
  • They promote attractive deals with local providers.
  • Once payment has been received, the fraudulent companies can no longer be contacted and there is no possibility of having payment reimbursed.

🔔 Reporting fraud: if you suspect any fraudulent activity, please let us know.
