DGC’s Countdown to the 2013 Cannes Lions
This Friday, the DiGennaro Communications (DGC) team will join the rest of the advertising and marketing community on the ground in the beautiful South of France to celebrate the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity’s 60th anniversary. We will have the opportunity to spend some quality time with our clients from all over the world and meet with international reporters and industry influencers while attending seminars, special events and, if we can fit them in, maybe one or two cocktail parties…
This year, DGC clients are hosting some standout festival events, including:
- SEMINAR – “When Advertising Grows Up” with Goodby’s Chief Strategy Officer Gareth Kay (Wednesday, 6/19 at 2pm)
- MASTER CLASS – “A Billion Dollar Brand in Your Hands” with Tribal Canada’s Director of Digital Strategy Andrew McCartney and McDonald’s (Wednesday, 6/19 at 12 noon)
- MASTER CLASS “Enjoy the Pain” with DDB’s Global Chief Creative officer Amir Kassei (Friday, 6/21 at 12 noon)
Other highlights on the schedule include seminars with such celebrities as Martha Stewart, Nick Cannon and Sean “P. Diddy” Combs (presenting with Translation founder and CEO Steve Stoute) as well as a host of advertising legends, including Lee Clow, David Droga and Sir Martin Sorrell.
In the video below, DGC Founder, Sam DiGennaro, who will be reveling in her own 15th straight year at Cannes, shares a few thoughts about what she is looking forward to this year and gives a shout out to the many DGC clients who will be participating as jurors this year including Johannes Leonardo’s Leo Premutico and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners’ Margaret Johnson on the Titanium Jury; Susan Bonds from 42 Entertainment on the Cyber Jury; and 11 DDB executives from around the world across various juries.
