Nautic Festival SA

Nautic Festival SA is a trade fair and events company founded in 2016. It is a subsidiary of the French Marine Leisure Industry Federation (FIN) which owns the Cannes Yachting Festival and the Nautic Festival, which takes place in Paris. Since 2017, Nautic Festival SA has been organising this major event for the French boating sector, staging it every year at Porte de Versailles.

Together with FIN, Nautic Festival runs the French pavilions at METS in Amsterdam - the world's leading show for boat equipment suppliers - and it also helped to create Virtual Nautic, a major digital marine leisure event staged in March 2021.

Since 2010, it has also been organising “Nautic Paddle”, which brings together 1,000 competitors from all five continents for the world's largest stand-up paddle-board race.

Guided by the interests of the marine leisure sector and its stakeholders in all of their diversity, FIN and Nautic Festival plan to make these events a key link between professionals and enthusiasts/future practitioners.

The CEO of the company is Alain Pichavant, a former windsurfer and skipper, who has almost 25 years of experience of organising boat shows behind him. He presides over the destiny of Nautic Festival, along with Fabien Métayer, General Delegate of FIN, who himself has a wealth of professional experience in institutional relations and communications.

Yves Lyon-Caen, the President of FIN, is also President of the Paris Boat Show, while Tibor Sillinger serves as its Honorary President.
