MIPCOM to Feature Women in Global Entertainment Event


PARIS: MIPCOM has aligned with Lifetime Networks for the industry’s first Women in Global Entertainment Power Lunch, which will be held on Monday, October 8 at the Carlton in Cannes.

The invitation-only lunch, organized by Reed MIDEM, will serve as a senior-level networking opportunity, providing a platform for women in entertainment to connect and expand business opportunities on an international level. Nancy Dubuc, Lifetime’s president and general manger, will lead a panel discussion during the event. Dubuc is also slated among the keynote speakers at MIPCOM.

“MIPCOM is attended by a who’s who of women entertainment executives from over 100 countries whose influence and vision over the programming we consume worldwide need to be recognized,” commented Laurine Garaude, the director of Reed MIDEM’s television division. “For the first time, MIPCOM will provide a forum for these women to exchange best business practices and pass on their experience to their international peers. As the first television network in the world to be programmed by women for women, our partner on this new initiative, Lifetime Networks, brings a wealth of experience and understanding of the important role women are playing in entertainment and we are thrilled that Nancy Dubuc will share that experience with MIPCOM delegates.”
