Have No Fear, Cannes Lions 2012 to Revert to Usual Timeframe

Not sure if it gave you a scare, made you shrug or if you even remember, but last summer, the Cannes Lions organizers announced that they would be changing the dates for the 2012 event to June 3-9 in order to accommodate a refurbishment of the Palais Des Festivals. Well, guess you can scratch that as the planned Palais improvements have been postponed due to “various internal and external reasons.”  Because of this and in order to avoid conflict with the Cannes Film Festival (because lord know you don’t want to step on Brangelina’s toes),  the Lions 2012 will once take place in the usual third week of June, from the 17-23 to be exact.

Cannes Lions CEO Philip Thomas offers his apologies in a statement, adding, “…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. A time slot that has been in peoples’ diaries for the best part of 60 years.” You heard the man, people, time to readjust those “diaries.”
