About DISCOP EAST Market
Established in 1991, DISCOP EAST has grown to become the most important event for the development of audiovisual content business in Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia, regions fueled by overall growth in disposable income and advertising spending, the ongoing switchover process, strong broadband deployment, a fast-growing home-video marketplace, the construction of multiplex cinemas and the vigorous emergence of IPTV.
The DISCOP EAST event takes places for 4 days in Budapest at the end of June, at the recently renovated SOFITEL CHAIN BRIDGE HOTEL located in the heart of the city, on the banks of the Danube River.
The event is centered around a 3-day audiovisual content market; screenings of recently produced television programs never released in Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia; a 1-day coproduction training and pitching program and a 1-day conference on alternative sources of television air-time income.
