Cannes Lions 2012 reverts to original dates – June 17-23

The dates for the 2012 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity will revert back to the usual third week in June next year after the decision by the city of Cannes to postpone until further notice the refurbishment to the Palais des Festivals.

Earlier this year, the organisers of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity had agreed to move the dates of the 2012 event two weeks earlier than usual to allow for improvements to be made to the Palais des Festivals. Having just been informed by the city of Cannes that for various internal and external reasons the proposed upgrade works of the Palais des Festivals have now been postponed, to avoid a crossover with the end of the Cannes Film Festival, Cannes Lions will revert back to the usual dates in the third week of June – 17-23 June, 2012.

“We apologise to those who may have already made plans around the earlier dates, but after consulting with many people in the industry, there was an overwhelming view that our delegates would prefer to revert to the traditional Cannes Lions dates,” said Philip Thomas, Cannes Lions CEO. “A time slot that has been in peoples’ diaries for the best part of 60 years,” he continued.
