Sun, beach, French food… is there anything more spectacular than Cannes? If you’re lucky enough to go, here are some things you absolutely must see: 


Oracle Data Cloud

What does data have to do with advertising? In a word, everything. Oracle Data Cloud will be on site to teach marketers and advertisers how to use data to create content that resonates with their customers. Come visit them at their tent to meet with data driven advertising experts. June 18-25, 9a-4.30pm, at the foot of the Palais des Festivals et des Congres. 

The tent is going to be the site for several thought leadership sessions. Executives from AOL, Flipboard, Dstillery, General Mills and Google will discuss, “Data by the Beach” on Tuesday, June 21st at 9am. Later that afternoon, at 3pm, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, AOL, AdExchanger and Oracle Data Cloud executives will discuss, “Campaign Success: It’s All About Who You Know.” Wednesday kicks off with “Breakfast Bites & Bellinis with Visa: Discover the Power of VisaVue Advertising Solutions” at 10a. At 1pm, “Cutting Through The Clutter: Defining Quality Data” will be discussed by a panel of executives from MOAT, Facebook, Turn and Oracle Data Cloud. 

If you can’t come to Cannes, use #ODCLiveCannes to follow the conversation.
