For eight days in June, the world’s leading creative minds—advertising professionals, designers, digital innovators and marketers—united for the world’s most prestigious celebration of creativity.
Whether you attended the Festival or watched from afar, you’ll hopefully have seen how we’re helping companies find creative ways to bridge human ingenuity with the latest digital technologies to reimagine the brand experience.
Missed it? Don’t worry; you can still see what Accenture Interactive did during Festival week in our Cannes Lions roundup conversation posts:
The World's Ultimate Selfie
Tuesday June 21 - Wednesday June 22, 9am - 6:30pm
Lions Innovation - Pod 11-12
It was time for Festival goers to step up their selfie game and dominate the digital dance floor! Introducing #iCannesDance: An exclusive-to-Cannes experience from Fjord’s Chaotic R&D (Design and Innovation from Accenture Interactive). At this interactive on-site installation, we used a cutting-edge combination of mind-bending technologies to generate attendees’ limited-edition 3D dancing double. The result? A digital doppelganger equipped with some seriously Michael Jackson-esque moves and, set in front of any real-time backdrop in Cannes, the world’s ultimate selfie which could easily be shared on social media! After all, everyone knows that if it isn’t on the Internet, it never really happened.

Meeting customer expectations is by no means a small achievement. However, it’s not enough anymore. Our new study Expectations vs. Experience: The Good, The Bad, The Opportunity finds that more than nine in 10 companies are struggling to deliver digital customer experiences that exceed their customers’ expectations.
But by prioritizing customer experience as a mindset, a cluster of high performers have found success over their peers. We commissioned the study from Forrester Consulting, surveying 702 customer experience decision makers globally across 11 industries, to understand where brands are falling short, and what the high performers are doing differently to succeed.
