The largest entertainment market came to an end with a 20% increase in attendance.
Paris - RX France announced that the onsite participation in Cannes was up 22% vs last year for the 60th edition of the MIPTV Spring International Content and Co-Production Market.
The figures were released on the final day of the annual Spring market confirmed 5,650 participants from 86 countries including 5,510 delegates in person in Cannes - an increase of 1000 onsite participants vs 2022 - and 120 delegates joining the market through the MIPTV online platform.
The increase in participation to this year's market underlines a robust content sales and acquisitions climate, a rapidly developing international FAST channel business and positive response to the newly reformatted exhibition layout and schedule in the Palais des Festivals introduced in 2022, which, combined further, affirms MIPTV's position each Spring as the biggest global television content market after MIPCOM CANNES.
"We have found the right format and scale for MIPTV and its working" said Lucy Smith, Director of RX France's Entertainment Division and Director of MIPTV and MIPCOM CANNES. "The increased attendance and robust exhibition confirm that the design and focus is paying off for all.
"The benefits to all of having the international industry in one place to discover, connect and acquire is magnified by trends such as increased licensing to third parties, the pace of growth for FAST Channels internationally, and the ongoing hunger for, and necessity of, co-production partnerships - themes we will further build on at MIPCOM CANNES in October," she added.
The next edition of MIPTV will take place 15 - 17 April 2024.
