Break out the rosé and the disingenuous complaints about having to hoof it to the Riviera: It's that time of year again and Ad Age is descending on the Croisette. The 2018 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity kicks off on June 18 and we'll be there, scattering our discerning editorial staff throughout the festival for unparalleled access, insight and maybe, just maybe, even a little fun.
Come find us to say hi (especially if you have tips, scoops or rosé). Can't connect in person? We'll also be giving you a rundown each day with our nightly Cannes wrap up. Sign up for our Cannes special edition newsletter here.
Here's our agenda for the week. To inquire about any of the activities below, email [email protected]. Be sure to include your name, title, company and which event you'd like to learn more about.
Our latest editorial video series hits the road to bring you ever closer to this year's hopefuls and heavy hitters with on-the-ground video every day, throughout the day.
Accomplished women in the industry will share their personal stories and discuss their thoughts on leadership. Open to all See It Be It participants.
