Events > UK at Cannes Lions 2021





Join us at the UK House @ Cannes Lions 2021

Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity 2021 (21 - 25 June), the largest and most prestigious global advertising event, presents an ideal opportunity to engage with the global creative sector, promote your company to a global audience and inspire and equip those starting on their international business growth with the tools to succeed. 
The Department for International Trade, the UK Advertising Exports Group and the Advertising Association alongside other partners are working to drive the global growth of the UK Creative sector. 
Following the success of UK House at SXSW, our virtual venue will re-open its doors to provide access to the very best creative ideas, innovations, and new trends fresh from Cannes Lions Live 2021. 
That’s not all – we also have 150 Cannes Lions 12-month membership passes available to companies keen to start their export journey. The year-round membership provides free access to the three Lions Live events, to high quality networking and training programmes, exclusive members events and access to the database of winning Lions Award entries since 1956.
Our goal is to provide more British businesses than ever with the chance to promote their services and to meet with potential international partners and buyers. UK House at Cannes Lions Live 2021 will open its doors on 8th July to celebrate and showcase the best of UK advertising, art, tech, immersive technology, music, and innovation. The event will be headlined by UK winners at this year’s Festival and feature UK companies with something new to offer global buyers attending. 
From July onwards, we will take UK House on country-by-country world tour – meeting up with some of the world’s biggest markets for creative services – from China to USA to India.
