Billion Dollar Boy at Cannes Lions Festival 2024

This year signifies the industry’s shift into the Creator Era, as creators and influencers take centre stage at Cannes Lions. Why? Creators are reshaping advertising, disrupting planning and creative strategies, and subverting traditional entertainment. As we celebrate a decade in business, we are exploring ‘The Creator Era’ at La Croisette.

Join the team for a week of curated conversations and thought leadership events to learn what is driving the shift to ‘The Creator Era’.
