The two-week Digital Pass is part of Cannes Lions’ wider digital offering bringing creative inspiration and learnings all-year-round through subscription platform The Work – featuring over 200,000 of the world’s best campaigns from Cannes Lions over the years, including every entry for 2019; the Cannes Lions Podcast – a window into the biggest topics in creative marketing right now hosted by Cannes Lions Chairman Philip Thomas; the Digital Doggy Bag – a week in review presentation and six trend reports produced by Cannes Lions and Accenture Interactive, available to download post Festival; and a series of short online courses on creative marketing in partnership with 42courses. Additionally, sister company WARC, the global authority on marketing effectiveness, provides the latest evidence, expertise and guidance online.

Delegates attending Cannes Lions will have complimentary access to the Digital Pass, The Work and all of this year’s onstage content for one-month post Festival as part of their registration. To learn all that The Work has to offer first-hand, delegates can visit The Work and WARC stand in the Palais during the Festival.

Enhancing the digital experience this year is a new initiative with IBM iX enabling delegates to natural-language search onstage video content using IBM Watson Media. This AI technology scans the recorded sessions to return specific clips within the longer video that match the search term or question, delivering immediate, relevant insight.

Simon Cook added, “Cannes Lions is no longer a five-day physical Festival. It has evolved into a 365-day experience, which alongside WARC, provides the wider industry around the world access to the best creative and effectiveness output there is.”

Cannes Lions will take place from 17-21 June 2019. Attendees can make the most of their time at Cannes Lions with the official app. Further information can be found at www.canneslions.com
