Mipcom 2015 - the Show Must go On!

Mipcom has wrapped and let's just say, it was a memorable market. The south of France received two years of rain in less than two days and we were right there installing our client's stands through it all. They labeled this freak weather occurence as a Medicane Storm, sadly, causing 20 deaths and damage to Cannes and surrounding towns. Streets with slopes rapidly became cascades, with cars, street furniture and bins swept away. People had to be rescued from trains caught in the deluge. 

Carpets were soggy, roofs were leaky and there was a good amount of logistical delays leading up to opening day that most were not used to and adjustments had to be made.  As they say, the show must go on and it sure did. Mipcom opened as usual, the meditteranean sparkled and the sun was shining, it was another successful market to remember! 

Below images of the storm, the devastating aftermath and the Palais on opening day!
