The Official Cannes Lions Festival 2020 Goes Digital!

The novel coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the delay and cancellation in many of our favorite events which is no less than a heart-wrenching affair for many people around the globe.

Advertising and marketing pioneers from around the world were all set to meet in the South of France during this year’s Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. However, that plan soon went down the drain.

However, Cannes Lions has decided to go-out-of-their-way to keep the Festival alive and  go live on through ‘Cannes unCanned’.

Presented by Adobe and brought to you live and exclusive right here on B&T, the online event will take place from 22-26th June 2020 (the week the grand Festival was initially scheduled to take place).

The selected theme for this year’s event is ‘Creativity Connects’.
