Just thought I'd share with you some of the great places I've found so far at Cannes Lions 2016. I hope this will give you a head start and boost your valuable networking (and drinking!) time...
(Both locations are situated along The Croisette, just a few minutes' walk from the Palais des Festivals)
This is a great place to hang out by the beach and meet friends. There are talks and events (Tai Chi and wine tasting on Wednesday) as well as a complimentary Juice and Coffee bar - with yummy snack lunches thrown in for good measure. So a big Thank you, Facebook!

Unfortunately, the FB Beach tends to close down at 5pm for private events, so unless you have a ticket for one of these, the best thing to do is head over to...
The YouTube Beach
This is another great day-long beach party but the place really kicks off at 6pm with their Sunset Happy Hour with complimentary cocktails, beer and great finger food. Add all this to the volleyball, plentiful beach seating and live music and you've got yourself a great party! Thank you YouTube (and Google!)
