Welcome
Digital Future Council was formed by a star-studded collection of leaders across the creative industries to bridge the gap between media, advertising and technology. Members of our community are specially invited to quarterly events hosted across the globe. Every event is centered around the impact of a different emerging technology. Huddled under one roof, in anything but ordinary settings, we work together to ignite meaningful debate and formulate tangible advice for the global marketing and advertising communities when integrating new technologies... and we have a lot of fun in between!
Next event
Cannes 18-21 June 2018
Where media, advertising, and blockchain hang by the pool
Located in the heart of Cannes, on top of a secluded hill, sits our beautiful villa that boasts unmissable views and renaissance architecture to match. Across the 18-21 June, our members will gather under one roof to explore the opportunities and threats posed by blockchain technology on the creative industries. Learn about how it might impact audience interaction, distribution of content, and monetization in a series of intimate town hall talks and roundtables. That's not all, in between guests will enjoy health and fitness mornings, fine dining, poolside parties, and networking over a glass of rosé.
