The Advertising Festival

To visit a place like Cannes, you should do it in style - preferrably on a work/business trip like during the Cannes Advertising Festival. That's why I was in Cannes summer 2003 and just got back on recently 28.06.2004 for yet another ad festival! ... and it was fantastic. Yes, i worked a lot, but it was worth it!

lots of crazy people dressing to impress. lots of parties in rented villas or hotels or on the beaches. and every night people pack at the Gutter Bar and the Martinez bar to schmooze ...and get wasted. great fun. no sleep. lots of sun :- )

our company rents a villa every year. here's the view from this year's villa

and yet more ...

it was beautifully hot this year, with just enough breeze during the day and cool enough at night to really enjoy yourself.
