The Dubai Film Market (DFM) and the International Showbiz Expo (ISBE) 2015 have today announced that the two entities will be coming together to create the world’s first 360-degree entertainment industry event.
The focus of the event will be to develop the industry in a global context by looking towards rapidly growing markets such as the Middle East and Asia, rather than the United States.
ISBE 2015 at The Dubai Film Market, which runs concurrently with The Dubai International Film Festival (9th – 16th December), will take place from the 14th – 16th December at the Madinat Jumeirah.
ISBE brings together cinema and entertainment industry professionals - from exhibition and distribution to the equipment and concession areas. At the event, over 2,000 trade visitors will have the opportunity to interact, network and celebrate the movie-going experience and cinema industry. Exhibitors will include film studios, distributors, media outlets, cinema-infrastructure and technology providers, talent and marketing agencies, theatre companies, festivals and more.
Over 2,500 industry delegates and media from 65 countries converge every year to do business at The Dubai Film Market, making it the perfect destination at which to hold the ISBE.
Regional and international players at ISBE will be showcasing their latest technology and equipment for 3D and 4D cinemas, cinema screens, digital cinema projection systems, seating, cinema architecture, sound systems, lobby displays, ticketing and cinema lighting.
The event will also feature product presentations highlighting a slate of upcoming films that will be released by Hollywood and Bollywood studios, all destined for release in the UAE.
ISBE delegates will also benefit from a wide range of initiatives offered at the Dubai Film Market including workshops, panel discussions, master classes and networking sessions. In addition access to DFM’s exhibition stands made up of regional and international film professionals, companies and institutions.
