Corporate Event In Cannes

Here at Sway we’ve been asked to sign a few ‘Non Disclosure Agreements’ when we’ve played at celeb parties and there are often ‘Social Media Black-outs’ on high-profile corporate events. But when we were asked to go and work for “a large American computer company” at their annual week-long sales conference and corporate event in Cannes in the South of France, it was too fabulous not to Blog about, even though we can’t say who it was for.

Corporate Event In Cannes

We flew out to Nice on the beautiful French Riviera and were whisked off along the coast to our hotel in Cannes. The next morning, at 7am, we were in rehearsals with the American production company at the enormous JW Marriot Méditerranée Théatre. We rehearsed all day and long into the evening. Working through the day were speakers, who spoke to delegates from all over the world about many different elements of the company.

There were several shows throughout the week, each one to employees from different international territories and we jammed a sing-along feel-good set to get their attention as they all came into the theatre. Then something for everybody to walk out to, at the end of the conference. Every speaker came on and walked off to their own personal live sting performed by us. Great fun!

On three alternate nights throughout the week we made our way down to Palm Beach on Place Franklin Roosevelt, which by the way, is as glamorous as it sounds! Here we played at three different magnificent parties which were being thrown for the delegates. It was an extremely international audience and each night the guests were from different parts of the world – we love that! We dug deep in our “International hits/Worldwide dance floor fillers set list” and went into battle. We had three amazing, smoking hot different nights and on the middle one the Germans actually wouldn’t let us off stage!

We played with a 10 piece band, which includes 4 amazing vocalists.

It was a magnifiqué trip working for a trés bon company and some phénoménale events companies!

We can’t publish lots of photographs of the event, so here you will see some of the shots of the band!
