Join Us
at Cannes:
Jun 17-24

Great things happen when people connect, so we’re excited to join 15,000 creative, marketing, tech and entertainment experts at Cannes Lions from June 17th to the 24th. With the rise of VR/AR, AI and chatbots, there’s never been a better time for marketers to explore how connecting creativity with the latest tech, can create new customer experiences and brand moments.

’15,000? That’s a lot of people’ we hear you say ‘how will I ever remember everyone I meet?’ Don’t worry, we know how tricky it can be so, as the Official Connections Partner for Cannes Lions, we wanted to let you know, we’ve got this covered.

Connect

Leave your business cards at home, give the address book a break, and grab yourself a Connect Band from the Connections Beach or one of the roaming reps. Turn it on, sync it to your phone and simply bump bands to share all the details you need to turn a brief chat into a life-long connection.

Every day we’ll be showcasing some of the ways we’re combining tech and creativity to help our clients create the best customer experiences on the planet. Sign up for a demo.

Next generation advertising

On average, we’re exposed to 577 marketing messages every day; no wonder people are increasingly using ad blockers. But, by 2020, this could be costing publishers tens of billions of dollars. With this in mind, we’ve developed a patent-pending solution. Say hello to next gen advertising!
