The Brief
To secure suitable acts for the Cannes Lions Opening and Closing Gala events.
The Work
  • Secure and book two suitable acts within a timeframe of 2 months
  • Listen to past issues surrounding the entertainment booking at Cannes Lions and present a new concept to the client
  • Compile a list of potential artists to suit the context of these events
  • Negotiate the deals
  • Contracting
  • Organise complex travel arrangements and routings
  • Full advancing of both shows
  • Artist liaison on both the show nights and throughout the duration of artist's stay
The Results
  • Booked Little Boots for the Opening Gala and Hercules & Love Affair for the Closing Gala. Both acts have had songs placed on TV, film and commercials and understand the relevance of music in creating breakthrough content.
  • Both the opening and closing events were a complete success. The audience was engaged throughout their performances and guests stayed late into the night.

“Thanks for yesterday. Tightly run operation – hotel, ground, show and hospitality were all well planned and executed. Made my day easy!”
Victoria Hesketh (Little Boots)
“I was very impressed with the H Concierge service, everything was taken care of and we had hands on support throughout the day and evening of the show. They even went out of their way to secure extra promo actives for us and liaise with the event team. I look forward to working with them again on future events.”
