It was a case of “no Cannes do” for some me­dia agency ex­ecs as sev­eral clients called meet­ings dur­ing the one week that a jolly to the south of France can be con­sid­ered “work”.

Chem­istry meet­ings for Jaguar Land Rover took place at the be­gin­ning of last week. The com­pany kicked off a global me­dia re­view in Fe­bru­ary, shortly af­ter a Times in­ves­ti­ga­tion found that Jaguar Land Rover ads were ap­pear­ing next to ex­trem­ist con­tent on­line. How­ever, it is un­der­stood that this is a statu­tory process that was planned be­fore the reve­la­tions. Mind­share is the in­cum­bent on the ac­count.

Carls­berg’s chem­istry meet­ings took place on the Tues­day of Cannes week. The brewer is re­view­ing its global me­dia busi­ness, which is cur­rently han­dled by OMD. Ebiq­uity is as­sist­ing with the process.

Oth­ers hav­ing to make do with English sun were me­dia agen­cies in­volved in Bar­clays’ chem­istry meet­ings on Wed­nes­day last week for its es­ti­mated £60m ac­count. Maxus is the in­cum­bent and the re­view is led by ID Comms.

On the creative side, Star­bucks will hold chem­istry meet­ings in the week com­menc­ing 10 July for agen­cies vy­ing for its EMEA ac­count.
