DISCOP MENA 2019 will be held from Sunday 15 to Tuesday 17 December and take place in Cairo, Egypt – the crossroad between the Middle East and North Africa. The 3-day B2B gathering is scaled to welcome 1,500+ international delegates ready to buy, sell and coproduce multiscreen film, television and digital entertainment content, and is specifically focused on the MENA region.
Thanks to a population of nearly 400 million people and younger generation’s ever-growing online presence, significant opportunities exist today in this part of the world for both global entertainment brands and local content producers ready to feed a growing appetite for homegrown programs.
DISCOP MENA 2019 will combine a market driven by pre-organized meetings, screenings of upcoming shows, pitch sessions centered on projects in development and a conference program specifically tailored for independent producers. The gathering is conveniently scheduled to take place four months before the next Ramadan Month starting on 23 April 2020, giving Buyers plenty of time to select and commit to fresh content presented at the market.
DISCOP MENA 2019 will welcome the United Arab Emirates as ‘Guest Country’, one of the leading content production centers in the Arabic-speaking world. The event will take place at the Cairo International Exhibition and Convention Center, Egypt’s leading business events venue that’s adjacent to the city’s bustling central business district.
