Ragan, PR Daily to bring comms to Cannes Lions this June

Ragan and PR Daily will hit the Riviera for the first time.

Ragan and PR Daily will head to Cannes this year.

An increasing number of communicators flock to the French Riviera each summer to participate in the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.  For the first time, Ragan will have a presence at the event, hosting a communications leadership roundtable, executive interviews and meetings.

Events throughout the week of June 17 will culminate in the Communications Leadership Council Roundtable on June 20.

The exclusive roundtable for communications executives, hosted by Ragan and Muck Rack, will focus on themes including the business case for creativity, finding your voice in a noisy year and more.

“Cannes is one of the foremost places in the world for creative thinkers to gather, and we’re excited to elevate communications in the conversation,” said Diane Schwartz, CEO of Ragan Communications. “Creativity plays a vital role in communications, and we’re looking forward to learning and sharing with the bright minds at Cannes.”

The roundtable and other editorial interviews will be held at the  Ragan x Muck Rack Headquarters across from  the Palais de Festivals, providing a central location for leaders to gather, network and meet leaders from both organizations. Schwartz will also conduct interviews with delegates on communications, leadership and more.

Other events taking place in Cannes during the festival include the famed Cannes Lions Awards, which celebrate creativity across the advertising and communications industry, presentations and conversations with some of the biggest names in the industry, and splashy activations from major brands.
