The metamorphosis of the Palace
It will have taken ten years to complete the facelift of the Palais des Festivals and Congresses in Cannes. Ten years of major modernization and beautification. The largest public institution in the Maritime Alps, the Palais is the engine of the local economy. Placed under the aegis of the SEMEC on behalf of the city under a public service delegation, completely de-indebted, it contributes since 2001 to the international influence of the city and offers it the title of second business destination in France after Paris .
Today, the Palais offers its event-organizing guests, visitors and spectators, a new space with clean contemporary lines and a mythical hall, that of the Grand Auditorium Louis Lumi??re, fully embellished and modernized .
