  • REASON #1


    DISCOP DUBAI targets broadcasters, pay-tv and mobile operators, online distribution platforms, international and regional distributors, international and local TV and web producers, satellite companies, advertising and marketing agencies, and consumer brands driving multi-platform, multiscreen content business across 56 strategic countries in the Middle East, North Africa, the Indian Subcontinent and South-East Asia. With birth rates that are among the highest in the world, these 56 countries boast a combined population of 3 billion people, young and educated demographics and economic resilience. For instance, with more than 20% of the world’s total population, the nations that make up the Indian Subcontinent comprise a rapidly expanding economic region, with India poised to become the most populous country in the world in the next decades. Despite the fact that like everywhere else, consumers shift their attention to multiple screens, television remains the most used by consumers and TV advertising accounts for the bigger chunk of media buying. Acceleration of Pay-Tv penetration is expected in most countries: the number of subscribers in the Middle East and North Africa, for instance, will continue to grow in coming years, reaching 6.54 million households by 2010.
  • REASON #2


    Built for business and designed for success DISCOP DUBAI will bring together 1500+ qualified delegates for a 3-day agenda driven essentially by pre-organized meetings, premiere screenings of upcoming TV and web shows, and high-level networking opportunities. The market floors will feature meeting tables, furnished and unfurnished 9m2 stands, 36m2 islands, country pavilions and a matchmaking lounge for non-exhibiting delegates. Within steps of the market floor, an area will be given to the promotion of upcoming TV and web shows, with private screening rooms welcoming guests for customized morning and afternoon presentations with pre and post cocktail opportunities, and well-defined spaces for hospitality, reception, interviews and, of course, talent, VIPs, entourage and press. Corporations, sponsors, media brands, and trade associations will also have the opportunity to organize morning and afternoon cocktails on a magnificent outdoor terrace located nearby the market and screenings areas, with valet access, bar and restaurant facilities. These RSVP networking events will be dedicated to specific groups of DISCOP Dubai delegates and local representatives from government, private sector and regulating bodies to allow them to meet, network, exchange and conduct business in a confidential and comfortable environment.
  • REASON #3


    DISCOP DUBAI will deliver guaranteed meetings between all qualified delegates thanks to a matchmaking program to be activated two months prior to the event. The program will enable exhibitors and pre-registered delegates to view profiles of participants and select those they want to meet at the event; access an online diary allowing attendees to send requests and respond to them, and monitor confirmations; and chat 24/7 with DISCOP’s multilingual support team.

    For organisational purposes, delegates are required to register early, and are grouped under the following categories to facilitate the preliminary organisation of meetings:
    • SELLERS | International and regional distributors of content, adaptation rights and packaged channels.
    • BUYERS | Content distribution platforms operating in in the Middle East, North Africa, the Indian Subcontinent and South-East Asia; international and regional distributors; and local format producers.
    • PRODUCERS | International and local TV and web content producers with projects in development, works in progress and finished content.
    • INFLUENCERS | Advertising and marketing agencies, consumer brands, star bloggers and journalists.
  • REASON #4


    The mix of a cosmopolitan city and state-of-the-art resorts make Dubai the perfect place to host and attend trade shows. Dubai is a hub of cutting edge style and sophistication and the INTERCONTINENTAL DUBAI FESTIVAL CITY—where DISCOP DUBAI will be held—is a 5-star hotel with stylish decor and world-class amenities. The hotel is also home to venues suitable for business events, shops, restaurants, clubs, and bars. Delegates will be provided room rates starting at $160 per night and will also be entitled to a 10% discount on EMIRATES airfares—DISCOP DUBAI’s official airline partner and one of the youngest fleet in the world connecting Dubai with 150 cities in six continents.
