Cannes Lions 2009 What is it? The Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival is the world’s only truly global meeting place for professionals in the communications industry who want to keep ahead of the curve. During seven days in June, thousands of delegates from 90 countries gather in Cannes to listen to speakers such as Sir Martin Sorrell, Bob Greenberg, Kofi Annan, Steve Ballmer, Biz Stone, Maurice LÃ©vy, Bob Geldof, Mark Tutssel, Tham Khai Meng and hundreds of others, whilst around 250 jury members judge over 22,000 pieces of the most creative advertising from across the world. All the entries are available to view for delegates in exhibitions, kiosks and in screenings.
I thought it would be a treat for bit Rebels readers to check out the format of the talk.Â people were asked to send in their questions via twitter.
Biz Stone, Co-founder of Twitter, led the first official Cannes Lions Tweet-Up. He addressed life, the Twitterverse and everything in between.
