Taking place during the Festival, the CMO Roundtable powered by Double Verify, is an invite-only Initiative and an ideal opportunity to network with some of the region’s most senior CMOs, discuss challenges, insights and what’s keeping them up at night.
A detailed coverage of the discussions will be featured in Campaign Middle East highlighting the key insights from the roundtable. If you’re interested in being invited to the CMO Roundtable, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In 2018, Cannes Lions and the ANA (The Association of National Advertisers, USA), formed the CMO Growth Council – 25 leading global CMOs, united in their mission to identify and break down some of the barriers to potential growth in our industry.
The collective contributions from these sessions will contribute to a set of playbooks, roadmaps and actions that will be presented by Marc Pritchard (Chief Brand and Marketing Officer, P&G – and Chair of the CMO Growth Council) at Cannes Lions. Participants will be given the opportunity to have their say, put forward their perspectives, network and learn from each other.
This year, Dubai Lynx will be hosting 25 CMOs at leading brands in the region for the regional chapter of the CMO Growth Council, powered by Bloomberg Media. If you’d like to be a part of it, contact email@example.com.
