Get Involved

Put yourself at the epicentre of the creative economy

Buying a delegate pass is just one of the ways that you can be part of the International Festival of Creativity. People and brands from across the world – from global corporations to tiny start-ups – find ways to harness the Festival’s energy, make new connections and enjoy the limelight. 

Yacht Pass & Fringe Events

During the Cannes Lions week, the entire city is yours to play with. Host an event in the harbour or around town to give Cannes Lions attendees a truly memorable experience.


Book a Yacht

The harbour in the heart of Cannes is one of the best spots in the city from which to host an event. You’ll just need to make sure you’ve secured a Yacht Pass from us first. There’s only so much space in the harbour – so be quick!

Host an event on the official Festival Fringe

Whether it’s beachside fitness classes or sun-soaked panel discussions, Cannes becomes a hive of activity and entertainment throughout the eight days. If your company wants to host an event as part of the Fringe, you’ll need permission  contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Event service

Cannes Lions' local team is on hand to make sure your event goes off without a hitch; helping with everything from finding you the perfect venue to introducing you to trustworthy local suppliers.


Last year 15,000 people hailing from over 90 countries came to Cannes Lions. It means the Festival is the best place for promoting your business among the creative communications industry, while the world looks on.

Take a look at the 2017 Sponsors.

Start ups

Each year, the Festival acts as a launchpad for up-and-coming companies at the leading edge of technology and creativity. Here’s how you can do it too:


R/GA Start-up Academy

Created in partnership with R/GA, this four-day marketing bootcamp helps ten hand-picked, promising start-ups to sharpen their brand identity, focus their business plans and market themselves effectively.

Discovery Zone at Lions Innovation

The Festival invites applications from start-ups in the creative communications space to get access to the Discovery Zone at Lions Innovation. This is the place for promising new businesses to find the exposure, mentoring, networking and learning opportunities they need to bring their ideas to life, pitch to potential partners and get their next round of funding.

Guests, winners and supporters



Each year, panels made up of the industry’s brightest minds scrutinise the entries to the Cannes Lions awards. The jury members are hand-picked every year by our dedicated team. Find out more about how we select the jury here.


Members of the international media come to Cannes Lions to share the news, trends and talking points from the Festival with the world. Press accreditation is limited – so if you’re a journalist looking to report at Cannes Lions, contact our press team now.


Anybody can submit an idea for a session at Cannes Lions – including Lions Health, Lions Innovation and Lions Entertainment. There is no fee to speak. The only stipulation is that your idea is compelling, unique and of course creative. Each year we receive thousands of applications for only a few hundred available slots.

Media supporters

We work with a number of media partners to promote the Festival. If you’re interested in becoming one of them, please talk to our press team.

See It Be It

This initiative is designed to propel the industry’s most talented creative women into the spotlight, addressing the ongoing lack of women in senior leadership teams within the branded communications industry. Find out about how you can nominate yourself or a colleague for See It Be It here.
