Cannes Welcomes the Lions to the South of France

Today is the opening of the Cannes Lions - Festival of Creativity and Cannes is full of creative advertising executives, all hoping that their campaign is 'The One' and that they will take away one of the coveted trophies.


The coveted Cannes Lions Award


Cannes Lions is one of the most important corporate events in the Cannes calendar and will see over 12,000 delegates from more than 94 countries converging on Cannes from 15th - 21st June. The jury of 312 members will judge almost 36,000 entries over the 7 days and there will be eventually be over 1,100 winners. Cannes will also welcome more than 550 members of the press and over 300 young creative competitors. Big numbers!

Accommodation during the Cannes Lions festival is sought after and the key villas and apartments are booked many months, if not years in advance. The trick is to be within walking distance of the Palais des Festivals where all the major events take place. And the team at Cote d'Azur Villas are delighted to offer a great selection of villas which are close to La Croisette and also idea for clients wishing to combine accommodation and an event during Lions.
