Advertising Age Increases Attention to Cannes Lions As Organizers Expect 25% of Attendees to be Marketers

Comprehensive "Cannes Central" Coverage of International Ad Festival Now At

NEW YORK, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Attention from Advertising Age and Creativity to the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity kicks into high gear today with the release of a comprehensive, insiders' guide to the festival.

Festival organizers expect 25% of this year's 10,000+ attendees to be marketers, up from 23% last year. Marketer attendance at the annual festival of advertising creative has grown steadily over the past five years.

"We've continued to increase our editorial focus on Cannes Lions as we've watched it also become the world's first international marketing festival," said Abbey Klaassen, Advertising Age editor. "It's a reflection of what we've known at Ad Age for some time: The connection between strategy and creative is growing tighter as two things happen — the time between concept and consumption for creative shortens, and the ability of audiences to engage in real time with brands continues to grow."

"Cannes Lions is definitely having a larger impact on marketers," said Allison Arden, Advertising Age publisher. "So we now combine the industry's most valuable editorial with exclusive events to create conversations that provide marketers increased context and deeper analysis. This combination gives marketers the full picture and perspective to have a meaningful impact on the work they do once they leave Cannes."

Today's Cannes Central guide follows the release last week of the Creativity 50. In-depth analyses on trends emerging at the festival, as well as insights into which creative won and why, will follow the week-long event. Complete coverage is at with select content also available via Advertising Age's print edition, Web site and iPhone and iPad apps

Among events planned during Cannes Lions, beginning June 17th:

  • A "Welcome to Cannes" event co-hosted with Vibrant Media aboard the Vibrant Yacht.
  • A comprehensive analysis of women in marketing and creative. First, a private breakfast co-hosted with AOL highlighting how women are driving innovation in the marketing and creative communities. Speakers will include executives from Unilever, General Electric, and Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post. And on Wednesday, the release, along with Interpublic Group of Companies, of ground-breaking primary research on women in the marketing industry.
  • A series of events co-hosted with Spotify, highlighting Resonate, a joint project that uncovers the music the ad industry is listening to now. The events will celebrate how music inspires creativity.
  • Advertising Age will host its coveted, annual cocktail reception on Wednesday honoring the winners of the 2013 Ad Age Global Cover Contest.

And of course, the smart coverage and analysis from the staffs of Advertising Age and Creativity:

  • An ongoing dissection of the winners: Who's winning what awards and why?
  • Slideshows from the festival.
  • Video interviews with top marketers and creatives.
  • Recaps of important sessions, both on-stage and outside the Palais.
