Euro TV mart Discop hits new high

Attendence up 38% over previous year

Discop, the content market focused on Central and Eastern Europe, has reported record attendance, with numbers up a whopping 38% over the previous year.

Complete stats were unveiled Thursday by the mart’s general manager Patrick Jucaud and by Rick Feldman, prexy-chief exec of NATPE, which owns the sales bazaar.

The two also said next year’s edition will unspool in Budapest June 18-20.

Total participants in the event that ran June 19-21 hit 1,522, compared to last year’s 1,104. There was an all-time high of 901 Central and Eastern Euro TV content buyers, repping 678 national, regional and thematic TV stations; DVD distributors; cable and satellite operators; format production companies, as well as 23 IPTV and mobile operators.

A record 530 program sales executives represented 383 TV content distribution companies from 41 countries. A total of 242 exhibiting companies at Discop rounded out attendance figures.

“The record attendance and added participation from new territories reinforce the booming TV business that is shaping up in Central and Eastern Europe,” Jucaud said.

After 15 years of operating independently, Discop was acquired in 2005 by the Los Angeles-based National Assn. of Television Program Executives.
