WELCOME TO CANNES

80% of brands believe they deliver great consumer experinces. Only 8% consumers agree.


At Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity 2018 we are exploring how greater experiences close the gap between people and brands through a series of demos, workshops, panels and talks. Join us from June 18th to watch and read our content from Cannes.



Lion
CLOSING THE GAP

Some of the key themes we'll be debating across the week:

How do you open up your brand just enough?

How can brands be transparent and win consumers' trust?

How can brands be authentic in the new world?

When it comes to personalised experiences, just because you can do something does it means you should?

What are the tensions between giving consumers hyper-relevant experiences yet respecting their data and privacy?

When it comes to managing a brand 24/7 - 365, how can you automate without losing the personal touch?

What is the role of AI in delivering this automation?

When it comes to helping reach new consumers, when's right for bricks, clicks or both?

How do you provide the convenience and service that consumers are used to online; offline, in-store and at home?

When it comes to keeping your business hyper-relevant, how do you transform across the entire customer journey?

What are the different ways in which a company should pivot in order to continuously reinvent itself?
