6 Apr– It was revealed that funky girl group 2NE1 will serve as public speakers at France's Cannes International Advertising Festival - the world's biggest event for advertising and communication professionals.
According to Allkpop website, the quartet will be speaking at the "Korean Wave through Digital Wave" that will take place on 18 June and will be attended by around 10,000 people from 90 countries.
The group enthused, "It's our first time standing in front of people as speakers and not performers. We will do our best to make sure we promote K-Pop's appeal to all the people from around the world. But next time we would love to stand on stage at Cannes not as public speakers but as performers."
Introduced in 1953, the Cannes International Advertising Festival is one of the most prestigious international festivals in the advertising and communication industry.
