It’s the end of May, which means it’s almost the start of June, which means the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity is almost upon us.

All of the above points to the fact that the annual shots Cannes Party, this year in association with Hero Productions, is right around the corner, and among your list of essential kit for the event should, of course, be a ticket to the biggest shindig of the week, held on the Thursday night (June 20). 

This year, due to growing demand for tickets along with the increased membership of shots after last year’s acquisition by Extreme Reach, the party will be on the Palais Terrace, next to the Palais des Festival.
