CABSAT Launches Content Marketplace

The all-new Content Marketplace is a dedicated platform for TV and film content creators, production houses and studios, distributors of content, producers, editors and advertising houses to buy, sell and explore co-production opportunities for the Arabic market. More than 500 local, regional and international content buyers will acquire, programme and commission new and existing content from scores of free-to-air, digital and Pay TV channels and networks, broadcasters and sportscasters, telcos, satellite companies and video content platforms.

With more than 950 local, regional and international companies participating in the core CABSAT 2016 exhibition, the new Content Marketplace feature is a direct response to 32 per cent of last year’s show visitors claiming new content was ‘critical’ to their business in the next 12 to 18 months.
