At first the Cannes Lions had pushed back the annual event to October 2020 from its normal time frame of June. As the global pandemic of coronavirus continues to bring new cases on a daily basis a new strategy had to be decided. 

Philip Thomas, chairman of Cannes Lions said the “difficult decision” followed in-depth consultations with the event’s partners and customers and reflected the unprecedented societal, health and economic challenges currently facing the world. He added that organisers also wanted to remove any uncertainty about the running of associated awards and events for its partners and customers.

 Cannes Lions will not take place this year in 2020 at all, instead the organizers will be working to bring it back in June 21 – 25, 2021.
