Olympics of the advertising world

“Cannes Lions is like the Olympics of the advertising world,” says Roanna Williams, chair of Creative Circle.

“It’s where world-class creativity takes on world-class creativity. It’s a global barometer for the industry and a critical tool for creative benchmarking in your business,” she says.

“But we all know that not everyone gets to attend Cannes. So, that’s why the Full Circle brings it to you,” Williams adds.

The event is a great opportunity to not only be inspired, reset and walk out with a Cannes do attitude, but you will be awarded the opportunity to rub shoulders with The Creative Circle Cannes judges, marketers, clients as well as all those colleagues you have not seen in years.

For those who are not based in Johannesburg, there is also an online ticket option available.
