Every June, marketing and advertising industry leaders gather in the south of France for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Together they celebrate the best creative work of the past year, and get inspiration for the year to come.
This will be Pinterest’s third year at Cannes and we’re planning some pretty exciting things. We’ll have a can’t-be-missed presence, with fun interactive experiences that highlight some of our newest technology.
As you explore the festival, stop by our space on the Carlton Pier to see what’s new. You can get your hands on Pinterest Lens, our latest visual discovery tech. Just snap some photos, and see what kinds of possibilities Lens can dream up for you. Maybe a new hairstyle...or some new shoes...or maybe...well, you’ll just have to try it for yourself to find out.
Here’s a full list of our Cannes activities, open to all festival badge holders:
Pinterest Board at the Palais
With our help, you’ll find the best of Cannes. Stop by our giant Pinterest board for grab-and-go ideas for where to eat and what to do while you’re in town, selected by this year’s Cannes Lions jury members.
Pinterest President Tim Kendall will open the week with a keynote seminar, ”Stop liking. Start doing.” He’ll give a provocative look at how technology can actually inspire people to get out from behind their screen—and out to do things in real life.
