TV market and conference to take place June 27-30

Television market and conference NATPE Europe, which focuses on the TV industry in Central and Eastern Europe, is returning to Budapest, Hungary, next year. The event had moved from Budapest to Prague in the Czech Republic in 2014.

Next year’s event, which will take place at Budapest’s InterContinental Hotel from June 27-30, is to be “reimagined” in order to showcase content from the region, Rod Perth, president and CEO of NATPE, said. The event will also feature a strong lineup of local and international industry leaders in its conference.

“We will build on our international assets with a completely fresh orientation that showcases content from every country within the CEE,” Perth said. “While remaining a market for buying and selling, we will also be focused on discovering original programming to become the bridge between these countries and the broader international buying and distribution community.”

J.P. Bommel, managing director and chief operating officer of NATPE, added: “We view each CEE country as a partner, and we want them to feel that this is their market providing new opportunities that haven’t previously existed. They will do business, they will network, they will engage with global partners, and their local content will lead the way on our international stage.”
