The BrandRally

a BrandBase Production

The BrandRally: a rally race at the Cannes Lions Festival for people in the advertising industry. Where everything is arranged for your convenience. Even the car. Which car you will drive is determined by luck: a draw before the race starts. You end up driving any vehicle ranging from a Ferrari to a Cadillac and everything in between. That's the joke. The route leads through the winding roads of the French Riviera and a lush lunch is included. The BrandRally starts and finishes at the Boulevard.

The BrandRally is the brainchild of Amsterdam based advertising agency BrandBase to spice up Cannes’ legendary advertising festival. This is the first year where agencies and brands can sign up…

About BrandBase

BrandBase is the leading brand activation agency in the Netherlands. We create and produce brand activation campaigns, premiums, events, websites, displays, video and radio commercials for Shell, ING, Marktplaats, KPN, Meeùs and many other clients.


Brand promises are more quickly debunked than they were before. People want proof. Stating a claim is simply not enough; it must be backed up by evidence. That is why BrandBase has turned traditional advertising on its head and always takes evidence as its departure point. We are convinced this is the way to make brands stronger, but only if the evidence is communicated effectively. A case in point is our Shell V-Power Looping.
