Ketchum Perspectives: Inspiration from Cannes

As a leading communications and creative agency, Ketchum has long understood the value of being a part of the conversation, exploration and discovery at the Cannes International Festival of Creativity. In this issue of Perspectives, we take a look at this year's festival and share some of the key findings that we hope will keep you breaking through too. Click here for a word from our CEO Rob Flaherty.

As we have been in years past, Ketchum was a large participant in the online conversation surrounding Cannes. Take a look here at our social content hub for a great round-up of the conversations, trends and pics that took place throughout this year’s festival.

Ketchum was proud to once again sponsor the Cannes Young Lions Marketers Competition, supporting and highlighting the great new talent in the industry shaping up to be future leaders. Click to find out more about them and the competition. 

Ketchum took to the stage twice during the festival, drawing attention to age agnostic marketing and setting up a film deal between a brand and renowned director. Find out about these sessions from the panel hosts here. 




Giving you a snapshot of the best of Cannes, Ketchum colleagues give their perspective on the festival, reflecting on their experiences, inspiration and takeaways of the amazing sessions, awards and work. 

Everyone knows that the festival takes place in the south of France, but what reach does it really have around the globe? Here we explore how far and wide the festival’s reach truly is. 

As one of the first PR agencies to win a Cannes Lion, Ketchum is no stranger to the awards at the festival. This year we had 14 campaigns up for awards - you can take a look at some of the great work we entered here.
