According to organizers, 250 content buyers from more than 30 countries and 150 exhibitors are confirmed to attend.

“The dynamic CEE market is becoming ever more important for the global content industry,” said Rod Perth,┬áNATPE Content First’s president and CEO, in a statement. “There is an increased desire for international content owners to sell into the region and, with a significant growth in local production, for CEE producers to sell their shows and ideas to other broadcasters both internationally and cross border within the region.”
