CANNES—The International Communications Consultancy Organisation, a global group representing PR trade associations from around the world, has launched its ICCO Guide to Cannes Lions website, supported by GolinHarris, Hill+Knowlton Strategies, Ketchum and Ogilvy PR.
The site will be constantly updated in the run up to and during the Festival. It will include information about events from the Festival program, profiles of the contestants and eventual winners in the PR Lions and Young PR Lions categories. There will also be blog posts from Cannes Lions Jury members,
competition entrants, journalists, academics, and PR agencies represented on the ground.
ICCO will also be exhibiting at the Palais des Festivals and all delegates attending the Festival are welcome to visit the stand to meet with prominent representatives of the PR industry and learn more about the ICCO international activities.
On Monday June 16, ICCO and its partners will be hosting a pre-Awards reception at the Palais des Festivals to celebrate the Young PR Lions and PR Lions winners.
Says Francis Ingham, ICCO chief executive: "Our goal is to make the PR industry stand out at the
Festival, and to make all PR professionals a part of this amazing international event."
