Last weekend I was in Cannes at the iconic InterContinental Carlton Hotel to host the TV industry’s Content Innovation Awards 2018.

David McClelland hosts the Content Innovation Awards 2018 in Cannes

The awards fall on the eve of MIPCOM TV, the annual television industry marketplace in which networks from around the world buy and sell the shows we watch.

Categories at this year’s awards included best entertainment format, best use of social media, best VR project as well as recognition for outstanding contribution in the industry.

Here’s a taste of the evening:

It was my first time in Cannes, and I had a terrific time at the awards helping the industry to celebrate its successes. I’m very grateful to the team at Informa, Television Business International and Digital TV Europe for asking me to host this year’s prestigious event.
