LONDON, May 11, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - Lions Entertainment, the new specialist event from Cannes Lions dedicated to unskippable creativity, has announced Citi as headline sponsor of this year's event.

Terry Savage, Chairman, Lions Festivals, said, "Citi understands the purpose of Lions Entertainment and what they are doing as a brand resonates with the purpose of this new specialist event. Their innovative thinking within the entertainment space is testament to the power that strategic partnerships with both talent and the entertainment industry as a whole can have on a brands' visibility and business."
