MUMBAI: TV France International will showcase the latest TV content offerings to global buyers through its annual trade event Le Rendez-Vous .

The ninth edition of Rendez-Vous. held from 8-12 September in Saint-Tropez, will bring together 173 buyers from 114 foreign television channels from more than 48 countries and 44 French production and distribution companies.

A press release claims that Le Rendez-Vous 2003 will witness a strong attendance from Middle East buyers in the wake of the Beirut Showcase organised by TV France International in April.
