In a statement on Wednesday, the organizers write that they are continuously monitoring the situation. The new alternative date is intended to secure the staging of this year's Cannes Lions in any case, should further developments make a staging in June impossible. In case of a staging in October, tickets, sponsorship arrangements and bookings would remain valid.
The public will be informed about a possible postponement of the festival by April 15 at the latest. Weekly updates on the status of the event will also be provided in advance. Regardless of the event date, all submitters should continue to follow the previous process and schedule. (pd/swi)
