Campaign Asia’s take on the work, winners and creative trends
The Cannes Lions Festival is the centre of the industry’s world in June – it’s where leaders set the creative agenda for the coming year. This year, the Campaign team will be bringing back the need-to-know trends from the festival direct to Asia in our inaugural industry breakfast briefing – the Cannes insight session.
Join us in Singapore on June 27th for a discussion around the winning work, main creative highlights and lessons learned for Asia. Hear insight on:
  • The APAC breakdown: Campaign Asia’s editorial team cut through the noise to deliver region-specific findings and perspectives in a Cannes de-brief with an Asia spin

  • Home in on the key trends: From the creative strategies to employ for growth to a renewed focus on the consumer, which Cannes trends do you really need to take note of? Expert speakers will unpack the movements that will truly impact your business
