Cannes Lions 2018 – A Roundup

Cannes: the French city is no stranger to A-List events and chic gatherings. And the world of tech feels no different – with the Cannes Lions attracting more than 16,000 attendees and 1,000 speakers for 5 jam packed days of talks, workshops, networking events, and award shows for people in the communications, marketing, design, tech, and media industries. With the festival’s origins dating back to the 1950’s, there’s no surprise the festival attracts an increasing amount of attendees every June to the coastal French city.

Stay Connected and Informed! Part 1

In today’s hyper connected digital world our lives, both personal and business run based on a steady flow of information.  In fact so much of our lives is digitised – our social interactions with friends and family, holiday snaps transmitted around the world in an instant and payment for our daily caffeine fix are just a few examples. As a result the digital devices we wear or carry round with us have become an absolute necessity, especially for business.

However, we have become so dependent on our connection to people and information; technology can be both a blessing and a burden.

Business travel – without the stress

At one point in your corporate career, you’ll be faced with the infamous red eye extravaganza: catch the first flight of the day, to a meeting at 9 am, lunch with investors, followed by an afternoon meeting, and right back on the plane home. Even the seasoned traveller dreads this trip: the time slots are tight, and with one small error the entire trip is ruined. With the demand in efficiency increasing by the minute, it’s important to remain calm and in control when travelling for business, even in the moments when things seem to fall apart. Not to worry! EAS has you covered from start to finish, no matter how tight the schedule.

Beat Jet Lag When Travelling on Business

Although many of us get caught up in the “glamorous” side of business travel – room service, limousine transfers and plush hotels – there’s a less pleasant side-effect of travel which often goes ignored.

That’s right - jet lag. You’ve been preparing for a conference for months, but between preparing your slide deck and ordering extra business cards, you forgot all about the impact travelling across several time zones can have on your body.

Why Use a Destination Management Company

Destination Management Companies – DMCs (not to be confused with Run DMC, the American hip hop group!) – are the intermediary business travel service providers that arrange accommodation and events abroad.

DMCs take care of every aspect of business travel, from organising airport transfers and accommodation to coordinating events. Their unrivalled local city knowledge and supplier relationships take the burden off you and your employees – saving you both time and money.

How will GDPR impact my conference experience?

Every conference generates an avalanche of data. From attendee contact details to employment information, to gender, disabilities and dietary preferences, collecting our personal data for later use is fair game - or at least it has been, until now. 

Many will be aware of the dreaded GDPR, Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, which is coming into force in May. Regulators promise stiff penalties for infringements, and even mighty tech giants like Facebook have embraced GDPR as it sets the new data protection standard globally.
