UK advertising is a leader on the world stage. We win more Cannes Lions per capita than any other country in the world. But the competition is tough and, with Brexit on the horizon, the time is right to accelerate that creativity.

As the UK representative of Cannes Lions, we and our partners Channel 4, Clear Channel UK, Framestore, M&C Saatchi and the Department of International Trade would like to invite you to our celebration of creativity.

The agenda will include speakers from the Cannes Lions community – hear from the people whose creativity is recognised on the world stage as best-in-class and take away ideas, learnings and inspirations to apply to the work you do in 2019.

The afternoon at Kings Place will include networking drinks to meet fellow creative leaders just like you working hard to make the world’s best advertising.

Tom Wordley
