PARIS: Reed Midem has confirmed that MIP Cancun, the leading international content market and conference for Latin American and US Hispanic television, will take place as a physical event in 2021.

The eighth edition of the signature one-to-one matchmaking market will take place at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun from 16-19 November, welcoming international and Latin American distributors, programme buyers, producers and commissioners for a much anticipated in person reunion.

MIP Cancun director Bénédicte Touchard de Morant said, “The television industry is eager to get back to business in person and we welcome the opportunity to bring everyone together in the uniquely relaxed yet business-efficient environment of MIP Cancun. Last year’s online market was very well received but overwhelmingly the feedback tells us there is nothing like meeting in person and forging relationships face-to-face.”

MTH Productions (Argentina) president & WAWA (Worldwide Audiovisual Women’s Association)  general manager Carolina Cordero added, “MIP Cancun is an unmissable market in the audio-visual industry calendar for the region. It is the market we all want to attend, because of its quality and effectiveness when closing business deals. MIP Cancun Online has been effective but nothing can replace the face-to-face experience. We all are waiting to meet again. There is nothing like closing a deal with a handshake. The platform helped for the business, but nothing can replace the face-to-face experience with potential partners.”

The three main components of MIP Cancun 2021 are:

·        Distribution Market – A curated programme of 17-25 one-to-one, pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings over four days between international distributors and buyers operating in the Latin America and US Hispanic markets.

·        Co-Production Forum – A curated programme of 10-15 one-to-one, pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings over four days between regional producers and commissioners seeking to develop co-production opportunities across the Americas.

·        Conference Programme – A tailor made conference programme featuring sessions and keynotes focussed on LATAM and US Hispanic topics, connecting and inspiring industry leaders.

Event organiser Reed Midem is working closely with local, national and international authorities and the Cancun venue, to follow and implement necessary health and safety measures, prioritising the safety and wellbeing of delegates.
