The International Press talks about MIPCOM Online+

Read more about what the International Press has to say about the 2020 digital edition of MIPCOM.

"Mipcom was rather different this year, for reasons that need no explanation, but there were nevertheless some interesting takeaways from the online version of the market to catch the eye of those in the drama business." - C21

"Mipcom sets the frame for meetings, screenings and events, and helps everyone to focus,” says Beta Film head of communication Dorothee Stoewahse. - Variety

"A premium digital platform offering 1-to-1 video meetings and live chat among attending delegates during the week of 12 October. Mipcom Online+ will be available for catch-up through 17 November." - TodoTV

"It has been a MIPCOM like no other and yet despite the lack of rosé and late-night gossiping on the Croisette, distributors and buyers still came together – with numerous deals emerging over the past five days." - TBI Vision

"The most unique Mipcom edition has started. Laurine Garaude, Head of the MIP Markets at Reed MIDEM, has welcomed to more than 6,000 television executives from 100 countries registered for MIPCOM Online+." - Senal News

"Prensario was checking Mipcom Online + for hours and we can say many things: it is a very valuable development, with a lot of business tips concerned, almost all we can say. It provides exhibitors, conferences, screenings, and a very intelligent concierge service of networking and connections." - Prensario Internacional


"The virtual-only MIPCOM Online+ had plenty to recommend it — including A-list virtual Q&As with the likes of Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos and multi-hyphenate Tyler Perry (this year's MIPCOM Trendsetter award winner) - and there was a steady flow of announcements and deals." - The Hollywood Reporter

"Mipcom Online+ had yesterday its MIPJunior Day, with a concrete conclusion: the kids programming is more strategic now than ever, due to the Pandemic times. Children, as adults, spend more time on TV, and the families spend more time together." - Prensario Internacional
