Palais des Festivals, Cannes
18 - 22 Jun 2018
Cannes Lions will once again bring the creative communications industry together in the French Riviera's Palais des Festivals to learn, network and celebrate.
Cannes Lions believes creativity is a powerful force for business, for change and for good in the world and, at its 65th Cannes event, it will aim to inspire, challenge and move the industry forward.
The June festival marks the culmination and start of the creative year, a time for the Cannes Lions global community – made up of the world’s most inventive, talented and creative people – to set the agenda for the year ahead.
Those attending can look forward to eight days of talks, specialist events in health, entertainment and innovation, dedicated networking opportunities, parties and a variety of fringe events. There is also an extensive awards programme, which recognises the very best in the industry.
For 2018, more brands than ever before will be exhibiting and other things to watch out for include hot topic debates, power hours, game shows and creative legends taking to the stage.
Another mainstay of the event are the luxury yachts lined up in Cannes Harbour, located nearby the Palais des Festivals. Many of these are rented out in order to do business, as well as host luxury dinners and superyacht parties.
There is an opportunity to reach out to around 11,000 delegates in the creative communications industry and what better place to call your base and welcome new contacts during the festival than from a superyacht.

LOCAL DESTINATION INFORMATION
Backed by gentle hills and flanked to the southwest by the rugged cliffs and wild rivers of the Corniche d’Esterel, the exuberant seaside town of Cannes has become a sybaritic haven for those looking to escape in unrivalled luxury. Famed for its Fifties status as a millionaires playground and the glittering annual film festival, it still retains the charm, glamour and allure of its heyday.
