The second installment of MIP China is slated to take place from June 6 to 7 at the Hyatt Hotel in the Chinese city of Hangzhou.
Mip China is meant to help global content studios find production and financing partners, sell IP and remake rights, and foster co-development deals for China and international audiences. The event offers a one-to-one meeting format. Every company gets a personalized agenda of up to 18 prearranged, one-to-one meetings that are each 25-minutes-long.
MIP China is organized in partnership with China Media Management and operated by Reed Exhibitions China. The first edition was held in May 2017.
Ted Baracos, the director of MIP China, noted: “Now is the time to develop the necessary partnerships for long-term content development in China, the world’s second-largest entertainment market. With its unique tailored format of guaranteed one-to-one meetings, small size and intimate setting, MIP China offers a simplified approach to build the new relationships and content partnerships required to have a meaningful content presence in this immense country.”
Jiali Wang, producer for Dream Stardom TV and Culture, added: “MIP China is an event of very high quality. We talked to many foreign production companies, and have a further understanding of the international film and TV market. It will increase our cooperation with international companies in the future.”
