It’s snowing on la croisette! Snowflake is back again for another exciting year at Cannes Lions. The Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, June 18–23, is the premiere media and entertainment industry event, bringing together legends, innovators, and thought leaders from around the globe. Simply put, it’s where people and organizations showcase what’s new, what’s next, and push the boundaries of what’s possible in the industry. A thing or two we know a little about (wink). Thanks to the Snowflake Media Data Cloud.

Exciting News from Our Customers

Cannes Lions is not only the place to learn and connect with media industry leaders and visionaries but also the place to make news. Below are just a couple of the latest developments from our advertising, media, and entertainment customers that have been announced. 

Nielsen is leveraging the power of the Media Data Cloud to build the Nielsen Media Data Room (MDR), a cloud-based platform that will modernize the way Nielsen distributes its audience data to publishers and advertisers.

OmnicomMediaGroup/Albertsons Media Collective 

In a multi-party clean room powered by Snowflake and measurement partner VideoAmp, near-real time data from the 30 million customers who shop at Albertsons stores every week will be combined in a privacy-safe manner with audience data from the NBCU, Disney, and Warner Bros Discovery linear and streaming channels.

‘Cannes’ we meet?

There’s plenty of room at the Medialink Beach! Request your meeting now.
