CANNES 2022: A HOME ON LA CROISETTE

Senior Writer and Editor
Hannah Lindley joined Havas Group in October 2021 as a Senior Writer and Editor. She has a background in corporate reputation management, journalism, and creative writing.

Since its humble beginning more than 15 years ago, The Havas Café has grown from a small outpost during the Cannes Lions festival to become a permanent fixture on the Croisette. Each year, the cafe hosts clients, prospects, partners, press, and celebrities, offering them a place to meet, sit in the shade, sip some rosé and socialize, and soak in specially designed programming during the day.
