Turner Roars into 2018 Cannes Lions

Championing creativity since 1954, the 2018 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity (not to be confused with the Cannes Film Festival) is taking place from June 18–22 in Cannes, France, and Turner’s presence is bigger than ever. Known as the “Advertising Oscars,” this event is the world’s biggest festival celebrating creativity in marketing, entertainment, design and technology. It’s a hub for the who’s who of advertising influencers, brands, publishers and agencies to get together and network, do deals, debate hot topics, and hear from creative legends about setting the agenda over the next year.

Turner’s activations will include a main stage session at the Palais des Festivals featuring Conan O’Brian and Shaquille O’Neal and moderated by Chris Cuomo, content sessions at the CNN Palais Beach and Turner House on the Croisette, Cartoon Network panels and a live broadcast of CNN Talk.  There will be evening client hospitality events as well to ensure that delegates and key clients are immersed in our brands.

Cannes Lions is one of the most important events in the ad industry calendar, where we host dozens of key clients and partners and interact with many more on the ground. All our activity is planned for maximum impact with those clients as well as a wider industry brand play.

We are excited for next week and will be sure to share key experiences/moments from those on the ground.
