Earlier this year we agreed to move the dates of the 2012 Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity two weeks earlier than usual in order for improvements to be made to the Palais des Festivals.
We have just been informed by the city of Cannes that for various internal and external reasons the proposed improvement works to the Palais des Festivals have now been postponed.
Therefore, to avoid a crossover with the end of the Cannes Film Festival, we are reverting to our usual dates in the third week of June – 17-23 June 2012.
We apologise if you have already adjusted your calendar or made venue bookings, but after consulting with many people in the industry, our delegates have told us overwhelmingly that they would prefer to revert to the traditional Cannes Lions dates.
So, to be clear: next year’s Festival is now confirmed to take place on: 17-23 June 2012 .Please contact our Delegates Department on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, or need help with venue rebooking.
