Although the advertising industry’s attention is monopolized by Cannes Lions this week, Golden Drum continues its preparations for a new edition of the festival, that will take place in October, in Portoroz.

Among the novelties of this year’s Golden Drum there are an advertising “pentathlon” and the introduction of Brand Grand Prix Award, that will be presented in 10 products and services categories.
