For the first time in the 14-year history of the event, The Realscreen Summit has sold out in advance.

The Summit, a top international market and conference for the non-fiction content industry presented by realscreen Magazine, takes place in Washington DC from January 29-February 1, and attracts producers, network executives and other non-fiction content professionals from around the world.

For the upcoming edition, registrations are at 140% of last year’s final attendance numbers, with close to 2,000 delegates slated to attend.

“The growth is across the board, but there is a noticeable uptick in the number of buyers from networks that have never before attended,” said realscreen VP and publisher Claire Macdonald. “The time commitment invested by this, and past advisory boards, coupled with the support of the industry as a whole, has resulted in this unprecedented growth. The bottom line is business is getting done. Deals are being made.”

Also for the first time in the history of the event, the host venue for the Summit, the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, will only be accessible to Summit delegates.
