For most people, the phrase ‘networking event’ conjures up images of stale sandwiches, stuffy conference centres and some less-than-fascinating conversations.

But in Saint-Tropez, where everything is done with a high degree of chic, professional mingling is done a little differently. St Tropez networking events are completely unique, offering everything from wine tasting to yoga retreats – let’s review the creme de la creme.
