What do you like about the LBB Beach?
It has to be the club sandwich and chips in preparation for Happy Hour.
Why is Cannes Lions important to attend?
it’s a great opportunity to network with key players in the industry and share insight and opinions on the latest advertising trends… but mainly because it’s sunny and I get a break from my screaming children.
Top Spot for a Meeting
Other than a nice spot on the beach with a breeze, I’d have to say the Gutter Bar. I’ve had some very productive encounters there over the years – a wonderful meeting of minds over a double vodka, from a crumpled plastic cup. It’s the perfect setting for creative thinkers to converge - cheap rosé coursing through their bloodstream and sweat dripping off their sun-burnt noses. Exciting opportunities are discussed, partnerships are formed and new acquaintances become lifelong friends… if only I could remember it all the next morning!
Favourite Watering Hole
It has to be happy hour on the beach, it’s always the turning point of the day- it’s all downhill from about 3.30. Make sure to catch our very own ‘DJ Bobby Rainbow’ doing his thing on the beach on Friday, it’s set to be big!
Best Guest List to be on:
As production partners with Spotify, we’d have to say their beach Party. It’s always a great night with an awesome line-up, the Killers were amazing last year!
What are you putting in the LBB Beach goody bag?
Here at SNK, we believe the only thing more important than stunning audio, is proper hydration… So we’ve included some lovely reusable water bottles, so you can stay suitably watered… whilst saving the planet.
