Digimart hosted a sun-filled terrace cocktail at Cannes on May 21, 2006 bringing together international decision-makers and producers from around the world. Over 200 industry representatives came out for the festive event, including many of the digital pioneers and innovators featured as guest speakers at Digimart’s first landmark edition in Montreal 2005. A huge thanks to all for joining us for this first Digimart Cannes get-together! What a fabulous way to celebrate the digital revolution and help each other move forward as we embrace the power of digital distribution!
