Cannes Deconstructed - a briefing by Contagious

Published on Friday, 11th August 2017

The team from Contagious have just returned from Cannes, a little jaded but supercharged with ideas, opinions and insights.

Throughout the week, their team on the ground attended 22 press conferences, interviewed 15 jury presidents, went to 30 seminars and caught up with senior leaders of countless global brands and agencies. And they’re coming to Bristol to distil all this knowledge with us at Cannes Deconstructed.

Whether you went to Cannes or not, Cannes Deconstructed will provide you all with vital behind-the-scenes knowledge, insights into the award-winning work and the industry implications for the year ahead – without the hangover. You’ll receive: 

  • 60-minute briefing plus Q&A
  • An understanding of Cannes Lions 2017’s key trends
  • A “no skin in the game analysis” of the award-winning work
  • An overview of festival highlights including exclusive Palais talks

The briefing will be presented by Katrina Dodd who is Head of Trends at the London office of Contagious, a consultancy dedicated to helping brands and advertising agencies around the world understand and adapt to shifts in marketing, consumer culture and technology. Their quarterly magazine is a global benchmark for creative excellence, with a longstanding reputation for separating the signal from the noise in a marketing landscape that gets louder and more cluttered every year.

The briefing takes place on Thursday 14th September from 1800-2000 and is very kindly hosted by our friends at OVO, 1 Rivergate Temple Quay Bristol, BS1 6ED.  Tickets are £50+VAT for Bristol Media members and £95.00+VAT for non-members.
