MIP Cancun Reports “Surge” in Attendance Figures


RX France has confirmed a return to pre-pandemic levels for the ninth edition of MIP Cancun, taking place November 13 to 16 at the Moon Palace Hotel in Cancun, Mexico.

Two weeks from opening, MIP Cancun is on track to welcome over 800 delegates from over 40 countries. This is a wide increase from the 450 delegates who convened in 2021 amid widespread travel restrictions, marking a return to pre-pandemic levels.

MIP Cancun’s signature one-to-one matchmaking business accelerators, which match distributors with buyers and producers with commissioners for three days of pre-scheduled meetings, are sold out.

Delegate passes are still available.

Lucy Smith, director of the entertainment division at RX France, said: “In just under a decade, MIP Cancun has become established as THE must-attend meet point for everyone worldwide doing business with the LatAm and U.S. Hispanic television industry. The take-up has never been more rapid or the program more diverse—a testament to the region’s continued exceptional creativity and explosive growth—a momentum we are committed to contribute to, and evolve the market in line with, over the next decade.”

Director of MIP Cancun Maria Perez-Bellière added: “The MIP Cancun community will again be out in force on the stage and all its surroundings. Though capacity is reached on the matchmaking so synonymous with the market, our delegate numbers continue to grow to access the wider conference and networking market. It promises to be a very special return to full strength.”
