Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity's 'Innovation Day' will take place on 21 June, same day as the Innovation Lions awards. The day will represent the forefront of technology and creative innovation and will see a series of sessions given by speakers from a variety of backgrounds.
Philip Thomas, CEO, Cannes Lions, said, “Cannes Lions brings together the global creative communications industry, once a year, to the South of France. What this means is that it is a hotbed of innovation, new thinking and pioneering technology. The industry needs to continually drive forward to stay at the top of their game and by providing innovation and technology focused content, delegates can leave the Festival better equipped and brimming with inventive ideas.”
On Innovation Day, delegates will also hear about the once in a lifetime chance to win a trip to space. The video advertising platform Virool, will be offering a seat on a Virgin Galactic rocket for a space flight in 2015. Details of the competition and how to win this prize will be revealed by Virool.
