Unfortunately, there are fraudulent companies targeting Cannes Lions delegates offering non-existent accommodation. They will lure you by offering apartment and hotel rooms in Cannes and the surrounding areas at competitive prices. They target people through fake websites and/or emails mentioning Cannes Lions festival, and at times may even unofficially and illegally include our logo. We strongly urge you to take care of who you book accommodation and services through.
Cannes Lions works together with b network our trusted partner. If you book accommodation through other suppliers we recommend that you investigate whether these companies can be trusted. For example, you can run the company's URL through a 'Who Is' lookup service and see to who and where the website was registered to. Dishonest websites would tend to not have been registered for long, lack contact details and not have static addresses (using PO box addresses). We also advise that you use credit cards to guarantee and pay for rooms rather than make bank transfers as they typically offer some form of consumer protection.
Please do all you can to ensure you don't fall prey to these companies and avoid having your festival experience spoilt by these scams.
