TFWA Cannes is nearly ready

The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) says its executive team is now in Cannes supervising the final preparations for the exhibition which will be staged from October 18-23.

The TFWA says the build-up of the event is proceeding according to schedule with virtually all the damage caused by the recent severe flooding now cleared away. All venues will be used as planned.

TFWA president Erik Juul-Mortensen said, “The board and management of TFWA have been very impressed by the speed and efficiency of our partners and the authorities in Cannes during the clean-up process following the extraordinary deluge and subsequent flooding in the city 10 days ago.”

The MIPCOM show which precedes TFWA World Exhibition & Conference took place as planned last week without any major problems.

“There remain one or two issues, including the reconnection of some France Telecom landline services to certain hotels and restaurants, but we are advised that these will be resolved this week. The services in the Palais, including the internet facility, are working normally and we are looking forward to a busy and productive week,” said Juul-Mortensen
