DISCOP Returns to Dubai


After a two-year pause, DISCOP is heading back to Dubai from May 17 to 19 at the Dubai World Trade Center.

The reformatted three-day schedule already counts 72 global and regional distributors and independent producers signed up. More than 200 programmers and acquisition, commissioning and production executives will also take part representing MENA’s key broadcasters, pay-TV services, streaming platforms and OTTs, and telco and mobile operators.

For the first time, DISCOP Dubai will also feature the Coproduction Salon, highlighting Arabic film, television and animation projects seeking international distribution and funding partners. Participating companies range from Saudi Arabia to Egypt to Morocco and everywhere in between. The Coproduction Salon is led by DISCOP Dubai partner HCONSULT.

Through DISCOP Dubai’s collaboration with CABSAT, all attendees will have access to global brands specializing in broadcast and satellite-related products and services. They will also be invited to take part in a conference program welcoming 120-plus game-changers, innovators and thought-leaders from around the world, and to include a series of talks and panels delivering key insights into Saudi Arabia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
