17-20 October 2022

With more than 13,000 delegates, 2,000 exhibiting companies and over 4,500 buyers from around 100 countries, MIPCOM is the world’s entertainment content market. Every October, the global TV industry converges in Cannes to turn every moment into an opportunity, transforming four days of meetings, screenings and conferences into deals – from blockbuster programming to ground-breaking partnerships. The event this year is taking place from 17 to 20 October in Cannes.

Creative Europe MEDIA offers both a discounted participation fee and a stand to some 180 companies from countries participating in Creative Europe MEDIA who meet the eligibility criteria.

MEDIA’s 438 sq.m. stand on the top two floors of the Palais des Festivals for MIPCOM has a dedicated space for meetings, generous areas for meeting with contacts or networking with other participants, a coffee bar, dedicated WI-FI, storage and a messaging service, all free of charge.

Buyers’ briefings are a specific service organised during MIPCOM, where participants can meet with buyers, get inside knowledge about their acquisition policies and current needs and present targeted programmes.

An advisory service is also offered to our first timers and new comers participants before and during the market.

There is also a discounted rate for successful applicants who are also attending MIPJunior on 15-16 October at the JW Marriott.

We particularly welcome applications from low audiovisual capacity countries and those who have received MEDIA support in the recent past.
