Some of the biggest creative names attended the Clio Awards, including Tommy Hilfiger, George Lois, Patricia Field - and also Will.i.am, who talked up Ekocycle, his eco-friendly initiative with Coca-Cola.
Eric Stonestreet, star of US comedy, Modern Family, welcomed DDB chief creative officer, Amir Kessai (interviewed in Archive Volume. 6/2009), to present the first Clio Grand in Print to Marcel, Paris, for "Ray-Ban 75 Years of Legend".

"Let’s move and get through these awards as fast as we can so we can all go drink again," saud Stonestreet.
"You will laugh short, you will laugh loud, you will keep clapping to a minimum and the quicker you come to terms with these rules then the sooner we can all get 'Mad Men' on each other."
