What once began as a networking event for the Belgian construction professional is today an international c-level community where people from all branches of the construction industry meet. This is the story of Chez Nous Cannes.
How it all began
MIPIM in Cannes is the largest real estate fair in the world. However, it is often difficult for visitors to meet there. That is why more than 10 years ago Chez Nous was created, an event for Belgian construction entrepreneurs who are in Cannes during MIPIM. Since then, the concept of the annual invite-only networking event has remained unchanged: a beautiful location in the southern French seaside town, quality catering and a nice ambiance. The ideal setting to meet in peace and quiet.
C-level networking event
After 10 editions, Chez Nous Cannes has grown into a high-end networking event that each year attracts over 700 professionals from the Belgian and international construction world to Cannes.
Much more than an event, it has also evolved into a community of c-level construction professionals who can exchange new ideas about the challenges facing the construction sector. Think of the European Green Deal, the evolution towards smart cities, the impact of the construction shift, the constant focus on sustainability and innovation, increasing digitalization, PropTech, ...
What will the future bring?
Chez Nous continues to evolve and establish itself as an innovative platform. Following the launch of the app and Chez Nous Brussels, it remains committed to strengthening its international appeal. The presence of guests from France, the Netherlands and Luxembourg proves that there is also cross-border interest in a high-quality networking event for c-level construction professionals.
Increasing the international reach of Chez Nous Cannes, while maintaining its high-end character, is the major challenge for the coming years.
