Finally some good news!

Cannes has been chosen to host the G20 in November 2011 and Deauville to host the G8.

Rumors let us think that Bordeaux might welcome the G20, which might seem particularly alarming given the weak hosting capacity of the hotels.

Cannes was the ideal candidate, with many assets:

  • Cannes has hosted several major summits in the past,
  • The hosting capacity in medium and high range hotels,
  • An ideal configuration and a small size, making security easily manageable.

A good and wise decision!
