The importance of the image within this type of advertising has become one of the most important factors within the content and that is because historically, the human being a primarily visual. We have already mentioned this in our article on the importance of digital marketing in retail, but it is good to remember that 90% of the information transmitted to the brain is visual and that we process images up to 60,000 times faster than texts and this is mainly due to our capacity in retaining the images.

And if we talk about an advertising image, creativity plays a very important role since it is the most determinant factor on sales objectives and results.

The Festival this year joins Accenture Interactive to bring new initiatives that combine technology with real-world networking, for this reason they have created two important platforms. The first of these is known as Braindates and is a highly innovative networking and learning platform that encourages the global community of Cannes Lions to meet and learn from each other. A connection between the right people through the new Connections Beach that allows people to connect with each other and book individual networking sessions in which they share passions and knowledge.

The second platform presents The Connect Band, a piece of wearable technology that serves to facilitate the exchange of digital data among Festival attendees, such as contact information and other data of interest that you can download directly on your smartphone.

Cannes Lions presents these two platforms with the clear objective of combining digital connections with the real world, helping to remove barriers and connect people to have meaningful conversations in an easy and funny way.

Finally we can not forget the Meet Ups, which this year includes twice as much as in Cannes 2016, specifically 24 there will be this year, organized by industry experts who will facilitate the conversations generating ideas and connecting to a global community that is focused on a common goal: the creativity.

This year there is a lot of competition to win an award at the Cannes Lions Festival. Do you dare to make your predictions?
