"Cannes is probably the best place in the world to hold a congress or festival!"
Phil Thomas, Chairman of Cannes Lions

Cannes, the best place to organize an event

“We have a vision to become the world’s most sustainable event, we need a strong partnership with the city of Cannes and le Palais to get there. We totally agree with what you’re doing at le Palais.
Le Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is a communications award, and winning a Lion is life-changing.
It’s something very important for people in our industry. The awards ceremony at le Palais, when people win their Lions and walk the red carpet: there’s no equivalent in the world!”

Le Palais takes care of everyone

What is Cannes Lions?

It’s the meeting place for all those who believe in the power of creativity, the organizers sum up. The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity rewards the best in communications and advertising every year. The event is a global benchmark that transforms la Croisette into the epicenter of imagination driven by the biggest advertising agencies in the world. The industry’s most famous professionals, seduced as much by the presentation of theemblematic “Lions” awards as by the business, also take time here to spark vocations among future talent.
