Cannes is just around the corner. We can’t wait to see you there!

Valid ID/Your Passport/Proof of Vaccination

For all you out-of-towners, make sure you’ve got your passport ready, and that it’s up to date. France requires that your passport be valid for at least three months after your planned departure, so now’s the time to expedite a renewal if you need one. And, while many restrictions have eased, proof of vaccination or a negative test may be required for flights and certain activities.

Speaking of keeping track of first party data, did you know that at Smaato, we enable publishers to bring their first party data and manage it all in one place? This helps ensure compliance with ever-shifting privacy laws, while maximizing marketer reach (and audience relevance).


Clear skies means lots of UVA/UVB rays. Make sure you’re equipped with SPF to help protect your skin.

The ad-tech twist: just as sunblock filters out damaging UV rays, our market and traffic quality teams work around the clock to ensure that you get a clean, protected marketplace. After all, our top priority is to keep you protected! We use a mix of human expertise and sophisticated tech systems to ensure a safe and secure platform.

French Phrasebook

Can you say, let’s improve the user experience and reach viewers around the world? Our platform knows no bounds. We make it simple to monetize inventory around the world and on any device, so you can reach audiences anywhere.

Another handy one? Quel est le mot de passe du wifi s’il vous plaît? (what’s the wifi password, please?)

Comfortable Shoes

Whether you walk in miles or kilometers, you’re sure to be covering a lot of ground. Comfortable shoes will help you focus on improving your advertising and monetization strategies, not sore feet!

Of course, we’ve booked a spot at Rado Beach Helen so you can come and put your feet up and relax. Grab a seat and a glass of wine or a refreshing drink, and give those feet a break.

Something on Which to Snack

Is it just us, or does ad tech make you hungry, too? Thinking about how to maximize your reach or improve your user experience takes a lot of brain power. Fuel up with your friends at Smaato and Verve Group – not only do we offer expert advertising capabilities, but also we come prepared with snacks.
