REGISTRATION FOR DISCOP SHARM EL SHEIKH IS OPEN

Slated from 26 to 28 February 2019, DISCOP Sharm El Sheikh will take place at the Martim Jolie Ville Royal Peninsula Hotel & Resort in Sharm El Sheikh, a dream destination offering competitive pricing, value for money, and easy access from most international airline hubs.

Egypt’s program to transform the country into one of the world’s fastest growing entertainment and media marketplace explains our decision to move our market targeting the 21 countries from Northern Africa and the Middle East to Sharm El Sheikh. Furthermore, with a population of 100 million, Egypt is the most populous country in the Arabic speaking world and a regional nerve center of culture and creativity. Buyers from MENA countries who are increasingly looking for homegrown content will also have a unique opportunity to tap into Egypt’s large reservoir of film, television and digital content.

DISCOP Sharm El Sheikh ambitions to welcome 1,000+ delegates from 70 countries representing 750+ companies – including 300+ content acquisition executives and 250+ content producers from Northern Africa and the Middle East, and 100+ global and regional distributors.

With Egypt at the crossroad between the Middle East and Africa, DISCOP Sharm El Sheikh will also promote partnerships and collaborations between key players from these two world regions billed as the world’s fastest entertainment and media marketplaces.

Detailed attention will be given to the planning of meetings between buyers, global and regional vendors, and local producers. Their organization will start on Monday 14 January, 6 weeks prior to the market. Buyers will also be able to screen online content offered at the market and book chat sessions with ‘personal shoppers’ fluent in Arabic, English and French who will help them navigate through the offerings and set-up meetings with vendors and producers.

Online registration for non-exhibiting delegates will be open from Friday 7 September. A 50% ‘Early Bird’ discount for non-exhibiting delegates will be available until Monday 17 DecemberPlease fill out this online form to receive the promo code.
