Just when you thought we couldn’t throw any more exciting Cannes in Cairns news at you, here we are again!
That’s right, we’re bringing the South of France to the North of Oz in our sure-to-be fantastic, utterly bombastic, three-day Adland supernova.
Featuring some of the industry’s most interesting minds debating every topic your imagination can conjure, the speaker list is only getting better.
And, while listening to our best and brightest is hardly work, we’ve got some guaranteed play in store too.
We’ve already made some very exciting speaker announcements, but hold onto your hats, folks, ‘cos there’s even more!
Newly announced panels include:
In-Conversation with Sir Martin Sorrell: Live from the UK, advertising’s favourite rebel will be spilling all. Bring a notebook and pen, but no crystal ball necessary – you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss out on his predictions.
The one that got away: Aussie jury members Shivani Maharaj and Maurice Riley are analysing all the winning campaigns from this year’s Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity and debating their top (and bottom) campaigns.
How eSports beat the COVID slump (and what’s next for gaming): While sporting leagues around the world shut down over COVID, eSports went from strength to strength. But as we return to normal, how can the industry capitalise? Join Meredith Besseling, Brad Manuel, Chris Davey and Nick Bobir for all the answers.
Spilling the tea: MOOD tea is Adland’s newest initiative, a social enterprise fighting youth suicide in Australia through everyone’s favourite warming beverage: the cuppa. Join UnLtd’s Chris Freel, Facebook’s Ellie Rogers, Nine’s Michael Stephenson, OMD’s Aimee Buchanan and The Monkeys’ Matt Michael to learn more about the journey of MOOD.
Thank you so much to our principal sponsor, Pinterest, and all of our other supporters for making Cannes in Cairns happen.
We can’t wait to see you there!
