MUMBAI: Fears over coronavirus have led to the cancellation of MipTV, one of the world’s leading television and entertainment conferences. According to the French organisers of the event Reed Midem, all the events, surrounding MipTV, including Mip Formats, Mip Doc and Canneseries, have also been cancelled.    

The television conference has been rescheduled for 12-15 April 2021 which was originally scheduled to be held between 30 March 30 - 2 April 2020 in Cannes, France.

The decision was taken after the French government imposed a ban on gatherings of more than 5,000 people in view of the virus scare. France has seen 212 cases of coronavirus and four deaths.

Reed MIDEM chief executive Paul Zilk said that the event has been cancelled after many clients raised concerns about travelling. Since rescheduling the conference wasn’t a good idea, the organisers decided to cancel MipTV, he said.

MIPDoc and MIPFormats, the markets targeted at the formatted TV and nonfiction programmes, have also been canceled. They were scheduled to run 28-29 March 2020. Season 3 of the TV festival Canneseries, the Cannes International Series Festival, has also been rescheduled to 9-14 October 2021. The event was meant to be held parallel to MipTV.
