MIPTV organizer Reed Midem has changed the dates for next year’s spring market once again, now shifting the event to start on Sunday, April 1.
As previously reported, MIPTV 2012 was due to start on Saturday March 31, with the two-day MIPDoc event taking place across the preceding Thursday and Friday.
However, Reed Midem said it has taken on board delegate feedback and, in a bid to keep the event dates “as close as possible to the usual schedule,” will now kick everything off a day later, with the event closing on Wednesday, April 4.
“Due to the public holiday calendar in April 2012, we have had to change next year’s MIPTV show days to exceptionally begin on a weekend,” Reed said in a statement.
“Following feedback and to keep our dates as close as possible to the usual schedule, the market will open on Sunday, April 1, rather than Saturday as initially announced. Additionally, MIPdoc and MIPformats will be held from Friday March 30 to Saturday March 31.”
For 2013, MIPTV will resume its normal Monday to Thursday schedule.
