LOS ANGELES: NATPE Budapest, which will be held June 19 to 22, will host the inaugural CEE Regional Producers’ Summit.
The summit will offer networking opportunities with senior executives from leading international production companies and experts in sales. Participants will be able to hear strategies for success and participate in a pitch feedback session with representatives from top distribution companies.
The CEE Market Overview session will highlight regional breakout hits, trends and data. A panel of regional and global experts will look at hits from the season in the CEE territories and beyond. Non-scripted format ideas with international potential will be spotlighted in the Pitch & Play Live session.
Exhibitors from more than 60 countries are already registered for NATPE Budapest. This includes companies attending for the first time from Germany, Turkey, China, India and Japan. NATPE Budapest will also feature dedicated screenings to showcase new programming from leading studios.
JP Bommel, the president and CEO of NATPE, said, “We are very pleased to be back in Budapest in June to once again act as the catalyst to generating business across Central and Eastern Europe. As well as delivering a wide range of acquisitions executives and exhibitors, we are delighted to offer a carefully curated lineup of panels and speakers that we believe will benefit all our delegates. Our new initiative to engage with new producers in the CEE Regional Producers’ Summit is particularly timely as there is currently substantial growth in local production across many territories.”
