COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE - NATIVE SPACES
La startup Native Spaces prend son envol et devient partenaire de la marque Côte d’Azur France
Nice, le 16 avril 2019 - La startup niçoise Native Spaces, qui a lancé en octobre dernier sa plateforme Web centrée sur la recherche de lieux d’événements, prend son envol et rejoint le réseau de partenaires de la marque Côte d’Azur France.
Native Spaces est une startup niçoise, fondée en 2018 par Tanya Bencheva-Vigier. Cette jeune entrepreneure a souhaité développer une solution technologique permettant de simpliﬁer la recherche de lieux d’événements sur la Côte d’Azur, pour les azuréens mais aussi les utilisateurs étrangers. A la manière d’un AirBnB, la plateforme Web de Native Spaces permet de mettre en relation les personnes à la recherche de lieux où organiser un événement (gala, séminaire, réunion, cours de sport, anniversaire…) avec des propriétaires d’espaces d’exception ou atypiques.
Loin des packages d’événements uniformisés, Native Spaces souhaite aider ses utilisateurs à créer leur propre expérience originale dans des endroits peu connus du grand public. En offrant une vitrine numérique totalement bilingue aux espaces azuréens, la plateforme Web de Native Spaces permet de valoriser les lieux authentiques et contribue à la promotion du tourisme événementiel dans cette destination. C’est dans ce cadre que la startup a conclu un partenariat avec le CRT Côte d’Azur et rejoint le réseau d’ambassadeurs de la marque Côte d’Azur France. Cette collaboration vise à assurer la visibilité de la marque territoriale azuréenne auprès de la clientèle étrangère de Native Spaces et permet également à la startup de faire front commun avec les nombreuses entreprises innovantes qui oeuvrent à faire rayonner la Côte d’Azur à l’international, tant sur le plan touristique que technologique.
The Very Best Creative Experiences in Cannes
Cannes - Let your creativity shine
A focal point for the creative communications industry, Cannes has been inspiring artists, writers and storytellers since forever. The ideal setting to showcase projects, host events and network, Cannes is also the perfect place to reset your batteries and get a fresh perspective on life.
Here are a few of our recommendations for the very best creative experiences to enjoy while you’re in town:
Take a masterclass in creativity by enrolling in the Cannes Lions Creative Academy. An exceptional programme overseen by legendary advertising director Bob Isherwood, the Creative Academy is designed to help students achieve their full potential. Attend classroom sessions and workshops lead by some of the biggest creative talent in the world and get full access to all the Cannes Lions talks, events and awards ceremonies. A one-of-a-kind opportunity, why not expand your creative horizons in Cannes.
Capture that Riviera lifestyle and discover hidden Cannes with an exclusive photoshoot shot by American photographer James Pouliot. Based on the Cote d’Azur and specialising in portrait photography, James will introduce you to the authentic side of city life during your trip. Stroll along the Croisette or wind your way through the streets of Le Suquet as James shoots original headshots or photos for your professional portfolio. The perfect location to take unique and memorable images, turn this stunning resort town into your ultimate backdrop.
Hidden away in the streets of Le Suquet, the Association des Beaux Arts in Cannes is a paradise for artists of all genres. Founded in 1902 by Louis Pastour, the association runs art classes in the stunning former Ecole de la Castre which overlooks the Bay of Cannes. Let your imagination run wild in a sculpture workshop or express yourself in watercolours, pastels, oils and more in a private painting class. Lead by the association’s highly-qualified and dedicated art teachers, increase your creativity and open-mindedness at the Association des Beaux Arts.
Take a break from your everyday life and use your time in Cannes to press the pause button with a silent retreat held at the magnificent Lérins Abbey. Located on the tiny island of Saint-Honorat just off the coast of Cannes, the 5th Century Abbey offers mindful meditation set against breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. An increasingly popular way to escape from the modern world, spend a few days in silent contemplation on this glorious island. At the end of your stay, head back to Cannes fully energised and creatively inspired for your next adventure.

SPLENDID MANOR FROM 1830
TIP #1 CHOOSING THE PERFECT VENUE
If you are the one to organize the event, you need to choose the venue very strategically so that everyone can enjoy. You should start with deciding who is going to make it to the invitation list and basically figure out how you can make them happy.
NATIVE SPACES SOLUTION: This beautiful château with calm Provencal atmosphere situated amidst vineyard and history, is ideal for a team-building party weekend to celebrate the end of the year.
TIP #2 ACTIVITIES
If we are talking about work Christmas party maybe a venue that proposes multiple activities would be the best option. When bringing people with different interests that also might be from different generations, it could get tricky to organize a pleasant experience for everyone.
NATIVE SPACES SOLUTION: Build you team spirit by benefiting from the various activities available onsite including wine tasting, hiking, quad rides and cycles. If that isn't enough next door you can find a golf and spa resort as well as a medieval village.
