With the launch party for the Cannes Cannes Express 2019 scheduled for later in the month and tickets going on sale last week, we are pleased to announce that Box Architects will once again be sponsors.
The Cannes Cannes Express was established in 2007 by a group of intrepid travellers with the aim of travelling to the MIPIM fair in Cannes by train, providing suitable French-style refreshments on route. It is a fantastic networking opportunity for delegates travelling from London to MIPIM to get to know each other in a convivial environment.
Train travel to Cannes is by far a more sustainable way to travel, saving flights and taxis for the 60 participants in each direction. At Box Architects, our practice-wide goal of ensuring sustainability is at the heart of everything we do has inspired us in our sponsorship. We will be supplying our fellow travellers with an exquisite cotton picnic bag complete with bamboo cutlery, plate and napkin. In doing so, we have saved at least 240 single-use plastic items of cutlery – and we improve the quality of the experience too.
Graham Place, CEO of Box Architects, says: “It may only be November, but planning is well and truly underway for MIPIM. For the second time, we have been selected to join the RIBA delegation and showcase exhibition stand as part of the London Pavilion.
“Having attended MIPIM for over many years, I can honestly say that there is no better way to travel to the fair than with the Cannes Cannes Express. It really is a great way of networking with individuals from the property sector – and beyond. Roll on March 2019!”
