Your Cannes diary sorted

Campaign, content, creativity, CMOs, coffee, champagne... we're bringing all of these things to celebrate Cannes properly. Join us for hard-hitting content sessions and a light refreshment...

The creative, marketing, media and tech industries descend on the Croisette very soon – so Campaign and partners are making the most of it.

We’re hosting a number of fringe events during the Festival of Creativity, and we’d love you to join us. You can wake up with Campaign at our Sunriser sessions – over coffee and croissants or catch a later session with a cheeky canapé or two.

Expect to come away with inspiration, insights and tangible takeaways – a chat with an editor – oh, and some branded merch…
