3 top recommendations on how to decompress in Cannes

ALLISON SHIGO, SENIOR DEVELOPMENT EXEC, ENGEL ENTERTAINMENT (US) Go to Grasse! We had the most wonderful five-hour dinner at La Bastide Saint-Antoine, and you can also visit the perfumeries to create your own special scent. It's only about half-an-hour away by car.

NICOLA S’DERLUND, PRESIDENT, SPARKS NETWORK (SWEDEN)
A night bath in the sea (it’s refreshing after a hard night’s work at parties and in bars); drag show at Discosept (a small cavern in the old town with a hilarious nightly show); eating seafood (my all-time favorite activity).

FUMINA KOIKE, PRODUCT MANAGER, NHK INTERNATIONAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT (JAPAN)
What do I do when I have downtime at MIP? I go meet my market friends. I try to get out of the Palais and have a cup of coffee with them in a cafe across the street, if we’re lucky.
