“Great opportunity to meet clients and industry peers. I believe that having a content market in Jan is very helpful as it is the beginning of the year where networks and platforms are working on their yearly plans.

The participating fees for sellers was reasonable and made it possible for smaller companies and startups to be part of the event and get noticed. I would also like to mention how thankful I am to the organizers of the event for being heavily involved and supportive, as they made a lot of effort trying match the participants with similar interests.” Nahla Elmallawany CEO, Qeesh Productions, UAE.
