MIPCOM has announced that the 36th annual international television content market will now take place entirely online as MIPCOM ONLINE+.
The physical gathering, previously scheduled to take place as MIPCOM RENDEZVOUS CANNES, is cancelled due to the continued impact of Covid-19.
MIPCOM ONLINE+ will be centred around the digital MIPCOM Week that occurs October 12th – 16th, and will include extended features before and after the main event.
“Our motivation has always been to bring together the global entertainment community around the flagship week of MIPCOM in order to support content discovery and new business deals, whether online or in person,” commented Laurine Garaude, Director of Reed MIDEM’s Television Division. “We made clear when we announced MIPCOM RENDEZVOUS Cannes that we would only hold the physical market if conditions permitted. Due to the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19 and recently increased travel restrictions, we believe that MIPCOM ONLINE+ is the most effective way to move forward and to gather the global television community around MIPCOM Week.”
