MIPTV is ready to welcome over 6000 executives to the Palais with a 20% increase
With just under three weeks from opening, MIPTV is forecasting overall growth in attendees to be up 20% for 2023. In total, the 60th Edition of the Spring International Content and Co-Production Market is tracking to welcome over 6000 international entertainment executives to the Palais des Festivals in Cannes from April 17-19, 2023 – a 20% increase vs. 2022 – cementing its position as the largest international content and co-production market behind October’s MIPCOM CANNES.

This surge in MIPTV bookings includes more than 530 exhibiting companies and 1600 buyers hailing from over 80 countries, amongst them hundreds of the industry’s biggest international studios, distributors, content producers and FAST channel players. The market is also being fuelled by a strong return from Africa and Asia-Pacific regions (including China which returns with its first presence at a MIP Market since 2019), alongside a marked growth in buyers attending from France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Türkiye.

“MIPTV is back to growth,” said RX France Entertainment Division Director & Director of MIPTV Lucy Smith. “We’re expecting the biggest MIPTV in years for our 60th anniversary. I am hugely grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response to the reformatted MIPTV. It’s not too late to join us in Cannes.”

Billed as the Biggest Week in Unscripted, and the Must-Attend Market for Drama and Kids, MIPTV 2023 features five programming strands accessible with one pass: Documentary and Factual (MIPDOC) and Formats (MIPFORMATS) alongside Drama (MIPDRAMA), Kids (THE FUTURE OF KIDS TV SUMMIT) and FAST Channels (FAST & GLOBAL). Alongside the panel, there are MipFormats Pitch with Fox Entertainment moderated by M.Chiara Duranti, chief editor of Formatbiz on Monday, April 17 at 3:45 and MIPTV WHo's Creating the Next Big Hit? with Avi Armoza, CEO Armoza Formats, Goshu Segawa MD at TBS Japan and Max Einhorm SVP Filmrise, the panel is moderated by M.Chiara Duranti. 

The 6th edition of International Festival CANNESERIES again runs in parallel to MIPTV (April 14-19) with additional exclusive premieres of drama and documentary selections for MIPTV buyers as part of a pre-market ‘Super Sunday’ on 16th April. Unveiled this week, details of the CANNESERIES Saison 6 Programme can be found here.
