Discover Cannes destination

Cannes Deauville on the green

DEAUVILLE & CANNES have similar objectives in their daily tasks :

- enhance their brand image,
- develop cultural and leisure offers,
- develop the level of excellence and tourism innovations,
- distinguish from the competitors,
- fetch new customers,
- develop media power,
- enrich, diversify and improve tourist facilities,
- reinvent every day.

Both cities evolve in the same market context, shaken by trade globalization.
Travel increase, emergence of new destinations, as well as greater intensity and immediacy of communication transmission change the offers and modify tourist consumer trends. Financial manna for national and local economy, tourism redefines itself given a demanding competitiveness in search of a new public and renewed expectations.

The tourism consumption patterns applied for decades are now collapsing, because demand is surpassing supply and local governments' budgets are decreasing.
Nowadays, territories have to think differently, by creating a network for public and private entities to combine their synergies and, beyond existing tourist facilities, increase promotion through a strong territorial brand policy in order to dominate the market.

Deauville and Cannes do not escape these new situations. Separately, for a long time, they founded their identity, invested to create high quality tourism, worked on a very select positioning, acquired fame and a strong brand image, to finally claim a top position in international rankings of the most attractive French destinations.
They today meet to share tourism innovations and create a pro-active umbrella brand : Deauville-Cannes.

Golf Cannes

Experiencing Deauville means

…walking along the Boardwalk with the sea for a garden, discovering its architecture, protected and valued, in a resort where everything is accessible on foot or by bicycle. It means playing golf in the heart of Normandy, setting sail on the Estuary which inspired Dufy, witnessing the unforgettable spectacle of a horse race, a polo match or an equestrian competition. It means attending a concert or a show at the Casino’s proscenium theatre, discovering the new talents of American cinema, attending a prizegiving for a young photographer or a writer, listening to a young soloist performing in public for the first time and encountering artists inspired by the light and atmosphere of the town. It means wandering round the market, tasting the excellent local specialities, or simply doing nothing but daydreaming on the beach.

Experiencing Deauville also means switching off in order to recharge your batteries and contemplate the future, facing up to experience, inventing new challenges, favoring encounters, human relationships and well-being.
