MIP Cancun Adds FAST & Global: Americas Summit


MIP Cancun is launching FAST & Global: Americas Summit, focused on the growth in FAST channels and programming offers across Latin America, the U.S. Hispanic market and Canada.

The dedicated FAST channel summit will be held within the upcoming tenth-anniversary edition of MIP Cancun at the Moon Palace Hotel in Cancun, Mexico, in a pre-market day on Tuesday, November 14, ahead of the regular market and matchmaking Wednesday to Friday, November 15 to 17, schedule.

The Summit will feature insights on how to program and distribute FAST channels from the top FAST channel experts across the Americas, as well as from global players and specialists from the world of free advertising-supported streaming in back-to-back presentations and panels, this time focusing on the opportunities for content producers, IP rightsholders, buyers and commissioners across the Americas.

“FAST & Global in Cannes was standing room only,” said MIP Cancun Director Maria Perez-Bellière, “And we plan to meet that same demand in Cancun, where we have the perfect opportunity and setting to take a deep dive into the true potential of this exploding fast channel sector for LatAm and U.S. Hispanic companies.”
