WHAT IS LIONS INNOVATION?

Lions Innovation is a festival within the Festival that takes place during Cannes Lions week. It’s a unique two-day event where data, technology and creativity will intersect. 

Cannes Lions is the global meeting place for the industry and we’re also its mirror. When the industry shifts, we reflect it. Today, data and technology are driving creative solutions in ways never seen before, and at a rate that’s unprecedented. 

Lions Innovation will blend inspiring talks from industry game-changers with revolutionary product demonstrations, networking events and the inaugural Lions Innovation Festival and Awards in a unique two-day event during the 2015 International Festival of Creativity.
