Strong start for Discop Sharm El Sheikh, February 26-28, 2019

Organizers of the inaugural Sharm El Sheikh edition of the DISCOP content market and coproduction forum announced strong bookings ten days after launching their new event, which takes place on February 26-28, 2019.

The new market will replace DISCOP Dubai and 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 move', Says Patrick Zuchowicki Jacaud, General Manager of DISCOP Markets, who adds: '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.
