How Cannes Lions Aims to Provide Networking and Idea Sharing at This Year's Festival

The online event will run across three elements: awards, creative presentations and networking

One of the most important elements of Cannes Lions, the annual advertising festival that usually takes place in the south of France, is the opportunity it offers the international mixture of people to catch up or make new acquaintances. That it has not run for two years, for that reason alone, it is a genuine loss. The virtual presentation of Cannes Lions that will run this year in place of a physical week-long event will feature an online network and meet-up space as the Ascential-owned event aims to facilitate community building within the advertising community.
