“Rendez-vous à Cannes !” The destination showcases its talents

Published on 7 November 2023

An international campaign highlighting the talents of Cannes

This creative choice “Rendez-vous à Cannes” is based on the brand’s strategic positioning “Cannes, where talents is expressed”.

To make this promise a reality, personalities recognized for their expertise are committed to making the city shine, in an ambassador logic.

The aim here is to highlight the know-how of the women and men who work for the city’s dynamism, thus contributing to its perpetual renewal.All professions in hospitality, culture, the arts or sport are or will be represented.

A network of Cannes talents has thus developed and will be highlighted through testimonials, portraits, videos, to give the world the desire to give… Rendez-vous à Cannes!
