Collier said: “With nearly four decades as one of the television industry’s most significant annual exchanges of ideas and opportunities, MIPCOM never fails to drive conversation and guide our industry’s agenda. It’s an honor to participate as a keynote speaker this year. And I’d be remiss not to add that…(continues in French)…J’aborderai certains des problèmes majeurs de notre époque et partagerai les façons dont FOX Entertainment adapte son modèle et forge de nouveaux partenariats innovants alors qu’en parallèle nous construisons notre prochain chapitre. J’ai hâte de vous voir nombreux.”
Lucy Smith, RX France’s entertainment division director, said: “MIPCOM Cannes is truly back at full strength for 2022. Stands from the U.S. studios are in line with pre-pandemic times, and their creative leaders are back on the conference stage.
