If you don’t want to spend a whopping 4000 Euro on the Festival badge, what else you can do in Cannes? Well, you could easily have approached the Festival like Maggie Cheung of Red Horse Film – meet people, network, hit a few parties, and have some beautiful sunset drinks. Life is hard in Cannes 😉
After staying up too late night before, you could have started the days off right with the Morning Glory Yoga session on Mandala Beach by GPN.
Do it the Cannes’ way; you need a wristband to access most of the parties, spend the week trying to get as many as you can!
You won’t have missed all of the base camps dotted along the beach. In recent years the dominating brands are all social media brands.
And of course, “China in Cannes”, the salon organized by Chinese advertising media Aquan. This was its 5th year, and a bunch of big names jumped into the discussions, including Wang Yan Kan from Tencent, McCann China CCD Sheena Jen, DDB Shanghai CSD Laura Liang. Independent agency founders Adam Fan from F5 and Loong from Loong were there, as well as agency Mad Monkey’s ECD Cheng Yu Fan， Creative Yolanda and Finance critics Bobo.
由广告门主办的“2019戛纳论道”不经不觉已经来到了第5个年头， 今年出席论道包括了许多重量级的广告人： 腾讯王彦铠、麦肯世界集团郑以萍、DDB上海首席策略官Laura、F5范耀威、Loong龙杰琦、Madmonkey程昱凡、创意创业人Yolanda、进击波财经沈帅波。
The best part about Cannes and networking is that you never know who you’ll run into.

What you definitely could not have missed in Cannes are BBQs and pools! Belgium production company Czar’s BBQ and South American Production Tantor’s BBQ are always great parties.
