Early indications suggest there are well over 400 Aussies going to Cannes this year - and delegate numbers worldwide are up from last year with more seminars and events at Cannes 2012 than ever before.

Apart from those officially registering as delegates, there are even many non delegates, as well as expats from all corners of  the world.

If you could guarantee naked chicks in the pool at the CB lunch again this year you'd double the numbers.

She was a waitress from Nice I hired to serve drinks at our party.
She served a round of beers and then jumped in the pool. Typical.

Hey Grasse, she also rubbed sun cream into my back. Very happily and with exquisite skill. You sure she was a "waitress"?

We shot in Cannes that year and our production service company in NIce helped with the hiring. She was a waitress. You must be very handsome or have short arms.
