New hotel & bar access restrictions, Creativity for good & speakers: What you need to know about Cannes Lions 2017

Cannes Lions organisers have introduced some new rules for delegates and non-delegates this year that everyone planning on attending the event this year should be aware of.

The new rules include access to the major hotels along Le Croissette during the day where many senior meetings have taken place over the years, with access being granted to only those who have been registered to attend the event or approved through a registration process run by the organisers.

That special access will run between 8am and 6pm throughout the week and will limit access across the Majestic, the JW Marriott, the Carlton, the Grand and the Martinez.

Meanwhile, the speaking line-up for the week has now been fully revealed.

Watch The Drum’s Cannes Lions round up to find out more details on what is happening during this year’s festival above.
