So, from 18–22 June 2018, a diverse community of communications, marketing, entertainment, design and tech talent will come to Cannes to learn, network and celebrate.
The 65th International Festival Of Creativity welcomes creative legends from across the globe to the stage. From savvy CMOs to Oscar-winning storytellers, these creative mavericks will show you new ways of working, unpick the latest industry trends and provide you with just the creative awakening you need.
It’s impossible to leave Cannes Lions without new contacts: The Festival is proud to welcome people from all walks of life, all corners of the world and from right across the industry. There’s a whole programme of tools and activities to make it easy to get talking.
