MIPTV 20.20: everything you need to know

13 January 2020

MIPTV, or Marché International des Programmes de Télévision, is a major international television trade show taking place every Spring in Cannes, France. The 2020 edition will take place from 30th March - 2nd April at the Palais des Festivals, the illustrious home of the Cannes film festival and many other global gatherings in Cannes.

Are you attending MIPTV this year? If so, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything you need to know.

MIPTV reinvented

While MIPTV has been serving the television industry from Cannes since 1965, the focus today is on all digital content and its possible formats. This shift, in line with our ever-evolving viewing habits, is reflected in the branding of this year’s event as MIPTV 20.20 – The Global Content Market for the Future.

It also marks a separation from its sister event, MIPCOM, taking place in the autumn – whereas it was previously required to sign up to both in the same year, exhibitors can now choose to exhibit at one or the other.

MIPTV 20.20 sees a new exhibition design with a reimagined floor plan that includes a coworking space and networking areas. There will also be a new Buyers programme specifically aimed at content buyers. The In Development programme, geared towards content projects in need of financial backing, is being expanded. Finally, there are new ways to connect to other event participants: complete your online profile and the MIPTV algorithm will recommend other profiles, projects and programmes that match yours.
