Looking to Network at Cannes? This Tinder-Like Site Matches You With Other Attendees

Clever promo stunt from Virool

Leaders from Glossier, Shopify, Mastercard and more will take the stage at Brandweek to share what strategies set them apart and how they incorporate the most valued emerging trends. Register to join us this September 23–26 in Phoenix, Arizona.

In case your meeting calendar at Cannes isn't already jam-packed enough, one company created a mobile site modeled on Tinder to help foster casual (business) encounters on the Riviera.

"Cannes We Meet," from video distribution platform Virool, connects to your LinkedIn account, and then lets you swipe left or right on other attendees profiles. If two people match yes, the site will connect them so they can arrange a face-to-face.

"We know that clients meet agencies, agencies win business, startups win funding and products find buyers [at Cannes]," said CEO Alex Debelov.
