Event: PACT Export Accelerator
Date: Wednesday 16th March 2016
Time: 9:30am - 4pm
Venue: BBC, Pacific Quay, Glasgow
PACT and MG ALBA are hosting a PACT Export Accelerator one day workshop in Glasgow on Wednesday 16th March 2016, with seven high profile speakers including Eurodata, Grant Thornton, All3Media.
This event is aimed at screen project producers and apart from hearing from leading experts on a range of useful advice: how to work and select a distributor, who are all the global buyers, how to access finance etc.; they are also bringing Televisa, part of Mexico’s biggest TV channel, who are looking for paper format ideas. Once you have signed up to the event a brief will be sent to you and a time slot allocated for your one to one pitch!
Regardless of whether producers want to pitch or not, the day will be filled with lots of important advice and Eurodata are flying over from Paris to share details on what programmes are trending around the world. All UK broadcasters use Eurodata to track individual programmes success so this will be a valuable tool. They will also let you know what is happening with SVOD players such as Netflix.
The event is supported by BBC and hosted by MG Alba. Visit the PACT website at http://is.gd/BNTWUi for more details and to sign up.
