In light of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, Realscreen is unveiling a reimagined virtual edition of the Realscreen Summit, designed to provide the international unscripted and non-fiction screen content industry with even more opportunity to connect, pitch, network and do meaningful business.
The Realscreen Summit Virtual Marketplace will take place between Monday, January 25 and Thursday, February 4, with the market floor and networking reserved for the first four days.
The Realscreen Summit will serve up two different experiences for delegates. The Content Pass will provide those registered with access to all of the keynotes, panels and the annual Realscreen Awards, taking place via a special virtual presentation on January 26. All will be broadcast live, over the course of two weeks between January 25 and February 4, 2020 and will be made available to registered delegates for one month to view at their leisure through realXchange.
The second tier is the Marketplace+ Pass, which will offer access to our sleek new delegates’ lounge, live meetings with other registered delegates, reserved meeting tables and exclusive enterprise suites, and more, all scheduled and provided through our proprietary virtual platform. Networking Pass holders will also have access to all content offered with the Content Pass, along with all of our signature breakout and networking sessions including 30 Minutes With, Speed Pitching, Speed Networking and Meet an Expert.
“We are really looking forward to hosting an in-person event when it is safe to do so,” said Claire Macdonald, VP and publisher of Realscreen, in a statement. “In the meantime this virtual edition of the Realscreen Summit will promote and facilitate transactional meetings in an environment where engagement and community are the focus.”

As a result of the Summit and other international industry conferences moving to virtual models for the near future, Realscreen will not be publishing its annual January/February print edition, but will again reimagine that issue’s special features and reports — including our annual Trailblazers list and year in review, our overview of the SVOD/AVOD landscape and our development/commissioning report — with special online presentations. Look for more information on these in the coming weeks.
