Cannes Lions 2014 Is Open For Registration [Photos]
Yes, people. It is that time of year again. Time to start planning your trip to the South of France where you will put a large dent in your expense account, sip champagne on the Carlton Terrace and squeeze in a few late night visits to the gutter bar. Oh, yea, and hopefully bring home some metal. After all, that's why we go to Cannes, right?
But what does Cannes Lions CEO Philip Thomas have to say about the event? "Cannes Lions offers delegates the opportunity to step away from their day-to-day work and truly immerse themselves into a unique environment of creativity for a few days. With exceptional inspiration, learning and networking opportunities, it's a chance for the global creative communities to recognize accomplishments, and take the industry to new heights."
If you've ever been, immerse is an understatement. You will be enveloped by all things advertising in a way that is impossible any other time of the year in any other place in the world. If you can, you should really go.
