More than 500 pre-registered television content buyers, sellers and producers are set to attend the inaugural edition of DISCOP Dubai, which takes place from January 29 to 31 at the Madinat Jumeirah resort in Dubai.

Close to 100 international and regional TV content suppliers will be exhibiting, including some of the world’s leading television brands who will come to DISCOP Dubai to do business with 300+ buyers representing broadcasters, cable, satellite, mobile and streaming operators.

Companies primarily servicing countries from MENA and the Indian subcontinent will also be in attendance seeking content, adaptation rights and packaged TV channels that will accelerate their growth.

DISCOP Dubai will also feature a two-day “deal-building” agenda of informative panel discussions and hands-on workshops tailored for broadcasters and independent producers. A special emphasis will be placed on the competitive MENA multiscreen marketplace, the power of advertisers and the importance of comedy across all content distribution platforms.

Moderated by Nabil Kazan, president of KPTV-MENA, the program will feature key industry experts representing companies such as Eutelsat, Eurodata, OSN, Starz, Yahlive, IMS, Du, Creative Venture, Tecom, GTV Productions and many others.

Under the guidance of Jan Salling, co-chairman of Frapa, the conference agenda will also put under the spotlight the funding, distribution and protection of independently developed TV formats, and welcome representatives from Global Agenc, Channel Sculptor, Talpa, Freemantle Media, BBC Worldwide and others.

“Driven by the tastes, expectations and usage patterns of an extremely young demographic, innovative business models and rapidly rising consumer embracement of pay and satellite television, television content business across MENA and the Indian Sub-Continent will rise fast as the driving trends behind these regions’ long-term growth remain the same, despite economic and geopolitical uncertainties.” says Patrick Zuchowicki, founder of the DISCOP matchmaking programs.

DISCOP Dubai is organised by Basic Lead, with the support of the Arab State Broadcasting Union, the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, the UAE chapter of the International Advertising Association, Emirates Airlines and the Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts Group.
