Baden-Württemberg meets Cannes. In 2018, Baden-Württemberg’s creative industry is again sending a delegation to France to take part in the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, the well-known advertising and PR festival. Ten representatives from the areas of advertising, live communication, visual effects/animation and film production, will be travelling to the south of France from 17th to 23th of June to find out about the latest trends and make new international contacts at this important get-together for creative specialists. Baden-Württemberg is the only federal state in Germany that is sending its own delegation to Cannes.
