Pinterest returns to Cannes Lions 2018

Pinterest at Cannes
Here’s what’s coming to Cannes

Start your week with a kick of creative inspiration. Hear from Pinterest Co-Founder Evan Sharp and Wieden+Kennedy Chief Creative Officer Colleen DeCourcy on how technology helps the creative process and where they think the future of creativity is heading. (Hint: Secret Pinterest boards and visual technology are involved.) Live at the Lumière Theatre at 2pm on Monday, June 18.

Starting Monday, stop by the Pinterest Pier (at the Carlton Hotel) and step into the Tasteshop—a series of interactive experiences and expert-packed panels designed to get your creative juices flowing. Hear fearless founders’ tips for fashion and beauty success, then sit down with a makeup artist for your own Riviera-ready look. Get insider tips from The Points Guy, then make the ultimate travel survival kit for your next trip. Check out our Cannes Lions page for all the details.

On Monday at 12pm, the week kicks off with Pinterest's Vikram Bhaskaran and Complex Media's Rich Antoniello. Then stop by the Pier to design a custom pair of sneakers inspired by your tastes. Get inspiration from Pinterest, then work with a top-class illustrator to bring your kicks to life.

On Tuesday at 3pm, hear from Pinterest’s Meredith Guerriero, FabFitFun’s Katie Ann Rosen Kitchens, Urban Decay’s Wende Zomnir on what it takes to succeed in beauty and fashion industries. Then get a Riviera-ready look from a pro makeup artist, or chat with a sommelier to find the rosé that’s right for you.

On Wednesday at 3pm, learn from Pinterest’s Raashi Rosenberger, designer Rebecca Minkoff and Berlin Cameron’s Jennifer DaSilva on how to collaborate with partners for success. Then get your hands on a limited edition Rebecca Minkoff t-shirt, plus styling tips to make it Cannes-tastic.

On Thursday at 4pm, we’ll wrap the week with a fireside chat with Pinterest’s Eric Edge and The Points Guy Brian Kelly discussing tips on getting the most out of each and every travel experience. Then put together the ultimate travel survival kit with TPG’s expert tips.

For even more tips and a sneak peak at the the juror’s creative trend predictions, follow our Cannes Lions boards. And when you’re at the Palais, stop by our real-life Pinterest boards for grab-and-go ideas for what to eat and what to do at the festival.
