Paris, 20 February 2019 – MIPTV today announces the creation of a new service to facilitate the sales and pre-sales process: the MIP Buyers Exchange.
MIPTV, the international market for content development and distribution, takes place in Cannes, France from 8-11 April 2019.
The MIP Buyers Exchange is a new curated programme to provide exhibitors with additional pre-scheduled buyer meetings according to their specific needs. This online service has been designed to complement existing schedules with additional recommended one-on-one meetings to discover and connect with a selection of qualified buyers based on pre-determined preferences.
“The MIP Buyers Exchange has been developed to complement exhibitors’ schedules with additional targeted one-on-one meetings. This accelerates the process of making new contacts from different countries and genres in a fast-changing industry,” said Laurine Garaude, Director of TV at Reed MIDEM, which organises MIPTV. “Pre-arranged agendas are an integral part of Reed MIDEM’s regional content events, MIP Cancun for Latam and MIP China in Hangzhou, and have proved very popular and effective.”
This new service is being met with great enthusiasm and over 160 exhibitors have already signed up. MIPTV exhibitors to-date include: A+E NETWORKS, ALL3MEDIA INTERNATIONAL, BETA FILM, CAKE ENTERTAINMENT, CANAL+ GROUP, CARACOL TELEVISION, CINEFLIX RIGHTS, CJ ENM, ITV STUDIOS GLOBAL ENTERTAINMENT, KESHET INTERNATIONAL, LAGARDERE STUDIOS, LIONSGATE ENTERTAINMENT, MEDIAPRO, MEDIAWAN, NBCUNIVERSAL INTERNATIONAL, NEWEN DISTRIBUTION, NHK ENTERPRISES, RAI COM SPA, RECORD TV, SKY VISION, TELEVISION FEDERAL, VIACOM INTERNATIONAL STUDIOS, WARNER BROS.
