The Canadians at Cannes Lions Cheat Sheet

London, UK
Ahead of Monday's festivities, LBB's Jordan Won Neufeldt assembles a list of where to find the Canadians of adland with notable roles in the event
When it comes to the biggest advertising event of the year, it’s safe to say that turnout is immense. In fact, Cannes Lions itself estimates approximately 12,000 attendees rolling into the French city next week, all keen to partake in adland's biggest celebration.  

To this end, we know that it might prove somewhat tricky to search for one’s fellow citizens at such an event. Sure, it’s wonderful to link up with creatives and industry leaders around the globe, but at the end of the day, there’s something to be said for connecting with your country’s best… beyond the people you travelled there with, of course.

So, to make this a little bit easier for the Canadians in attendance next week, we have compiled a cheat sheet for LBB readers. While it wouldn't be possible to list every single Canadian due to attend, we have included every jury member, panellist, and, naturally, speaker on the LBB & Friends Beach who hails from Canada and works in the industry. All this to help you in your search, and give you a starting place for those invaluable networking opportunities.
