The Networking Pass

€1995 + TVA

The Networking Pass enables those who are attending with a commercial focus to meet and generate opportunities through access to exclusive meeting spaces, the ability to connect with the delegate database via the festival app and dedicated networking events. 

For the Networkers

Access to exclusive space to meet and connect with Cannes Lions delegates and host meetings in a prime City location.

With more than 16,000 people in town for Cannes Lions, the Festival is an amazing place to make contacts and do business. And the new online delegate directory makes it easy to meet people, set up meetings and plan your diary before, during and after the event. Available exclusively for delegates, the service is your invaluable networking tool.

Outside the iconic Carlton Hotel, the Cannes Lions Beach is one of the Festival’s top networking spots. It’s where delegates can grab a drink or a bite to eat throughout the day, host a meeting or enjoy a talk from some of the world’s best creative thinkers. It’s a chance to meet and mingle with fellow Festival delegates with regular networker drinks providing a great chance to make contacts and establish new business relationships.

Each day of the Festival, take a chance to reflect on what you've learned and chat to fellow delegates with a cold beer as the sun sets over the Med. Complimentary drinks on the beach are the perfect opportunity to unwind and recharge ahead of the evening's activities and awards.

City

As the Festival has grown, the popularity of the hotel bars and restaurants along the Croisette has increased, making it difficult to book tables and find places to have meetings during the day. To make securing a space easier, all delegates now have priority access to the main bars and restaurants of the Palace hotels along the Croisette between 08:00 and 18:00.

Get online quickly and easily while you’re at the Festival with free Wi-Fi both inside the official venues and all along the beachfront Croisette.

Get a great deal on food and drink in some of the city's most popular restaurants with set price menus. More than 60 bars and restaurants have already committed to offering these deals exclusively for official Cannes Lions delegates during the Festival.

This year, the cost of transfers between Cannes and Nice Airport with the official local taxi service have been capped at a fixed cost of €85 for all festival delegates.

Festival Access

Just outside the Palais des Festivals, the beachfront row of Cabanas where some of the world's most innovative companies set up shop during the Festival. Open to festival delegates, brands use their Cabanas to host parties, meetings, exclusive product launches and demos and their own content sessions. Previous Cabana hosts include the likes of Hulu, Live Nation, Unilever, Deloitte Digital and NBC Universal.

From the harbour to iconic hotels, the entire city transforms into a hub of creativity during the Festival: the official Festival Fringe includes everything from talks and parties to meetings and beachside fitness, thanks to our diverse range of commercial partners. A pass includes access to all official Fringe events, hosted by the likes of YouTube, Spotify, Havas, IPG, Girls Lounge, Facebook, Oracle, Twitter, Pinterest, Shutterstock, Haymarket, Open X and the United Nations.

Just outside the Palais des Festivals is the Palais Beach, a space for festival delegates to network and relax during the week. It's where the daily happy hours take place and is home to various different exhibitions and installations to inspire you while you network.

Outside the iconic Carlton Hotel, the Cannes Lions Beach is one of the Festival’s top networking spots. It’s where delegates can grab a drink or a bite to eat throughout the day, host a meeting or enjoy a talk from some of the world’s best creative thinkers.

Content extends beyond the theatres of the Palais des Festival during Cannes Lions. There are also daily talks on the Festival’s official beaches. This is where you’ll hear from the marketing leaders at the world’s biggest brands and the creative leaders from the most awarded agencies. They’ll be sharing stories of personal and professional triumphs and revealing how they’ve put creativity to work within their organisations, with spectacular success.

Each year the start and end of the Festival are marked by the official Cannes Lions parties. With special guest performers and free food and drink at both parties, they're the perfect opportunities to meet colleagues, make contacts and let your hair down.

One of the best ways to raise the creative bar in your organisation is by carefully studying the Cannes Lions winners. And every delegate gets exclusive access to all the winners and their case studies immediately after the Festival. Our digital winners' site is the best place to deep dive into what good looks like and understand what it takes to win a Lion.

There's a lot on during Cannes Lions and we know that people who plan their time get the most out of the week. To help, delegates get exclusive access to the official scheduling app which allows them to decide what they want to see and record their thoughts and inspiration as it happens.
