  • Boost for Hotels and Trade: Hotel occupancy rates saw a significant increase during the Carnival, reflecting the event’s importance in the city’s tourism appeal.
  • Commitment to the Future: With the theme of the King of the Oceans for the 2025 edition, the Nice Carnival positions itself as an event anticipating global environmental challenges, as Nice will host the UN Ocean Conference in June 2025.

Record Attendance Beneficial for the Local Economy

The Nice Carnival reached a new milestone in 2024 with a record attendance of 230,000 visitors, marking a 15% increase from the previous edition.

This significant increase in attendance had a direct impact on the city’s economy, particularly stimulating the hotel, restaurant, and retail sectors.

The event proved its role as an economic catalyst, with estimated revenues of 35 million euros for the local economy.

Positive Dynamics for Hotels and Trade

The Carnival contributed to a noticeable improvement in hotel performance, with an average occupancy rate of 67%, and a peak of 87% during the main weekend of the event.

This performance, up 4 points from the previous year, demonstrates the growing appeal of the Carnival and its importance as a major event to attract visitors to Nice.

Towards a Promising and Engaged Future

As the 2025 edition focuses on the theme of the King of the Oceans, Nice aligns itself with current environmental concerns, while also considering new economic opportunities.

This focus on marine biodiversity protection themes promises to enrich the event’s appeal, while also raising awareness for crucial ecological causes.
