Cannes Lions Live 2020

Mon 22nd Jun, 2020

By APA Admin in Insight, Recognition


For the first time in nearly 70 years, our team at Cannes Lions are unable to bring the global creative marketing community together in the South of France. However, LIONS LIVE has been created to take its place.

LIONS Live is a curated digital experience for everyone, everywhere, who believes in the power of creative possibility. LIONS Live kicks-off today at 12pm BST, and we’d love you to get involved. You can register here and access live-streamed and on-demand content. It’s for everyone. For free. 

Highlights include:

A-list talent, business leaders and creative legends from around the world have crafted beautiful films, content and experiences, in a range of compelling digital formats. 

The full programme offers original thinking and expert perspectives on what’s coming next, created by some of the brightest minds on the planet, including some of our own Ascential people.

Tune in to hear more from brands that are adapting to fast-shifting consumer behaviours, agencies that are adjusting business models and the creative pioneers shaping the way forward.

Our community also gains complimentary access to our creative intelligence platform - The Work. 

Alongside the programme, we are making learning resources available for the week, including free access to The Work - the Cannes Lions’ subscription-only intelligence platform, with more than 200,000 Lions-winning and shortlisted work and 1,600 Festival talks for further online learning.

Make it a team activity...

Thousands of people across 100+ countries have confirmed that they will be tuning in and many companies are using LIONS Live as an opportunity to gather their teams and enjoy a shared learning experience. Take a look at the programme and consider which talks might be a good conversation-starter for your team. You can view the full programme online, or find a list of some of the confirmed talent below.

We look forward to seeing you (virtually) there from midday BST today.
