    to be present there, which will

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-He is expected to be present at the Cannes film festival, which will make him even more famous.
    2-He has decided to be present at the Cannes film festival, which will make him even more famous.

    Being present at the Cannes will make him more famous.

    I think they both work. The 'which' clause modifies an infinitive.


    Gratefully,

    They are both grammatical. I would change "to be present at" to "to attend".
