NATPE Budapest Global TV Market and Conference takes place at the Intercontinental Hotel in Budapest from June 19-22, 2017.
In addition to the conference program, NATPE will introduce an expanded networking service, targeted buyers’ sessions and a regional producers’ summit designed to foster new business and stimulate creative discussions and partnerships. NBCUniversal, MGM, Twentieth Century Fox TV Distribution, Lionsgate, CBS and Warner Bros. will offer CEE acquisition executives new content, fresh from the LA Screenings; and Pitch and Play is back for a second edition.

The finalists are: Start Up Slovenia (Pop TV, Slovenia) - a format looking for the best new locally developed product by young entrepreneurs; SuperYou! (NTV, Russia) - a show looking for the most talented little singers without parents; and The Land is Singing (Jednotka, Nunez NFE, Slovakia) - a talent format looking for folklore talents.

150 companies from broadcasters, cable, satellite and pay-tv services, and digital networks across 70 countries are set to attend, and buyers’ participation is already outpacing last year, with more than 415 confirmed to-date.
One not-to-be-missed session for all delegates according to NATPE recommendation will be a comprehensive CEE Market Overview highlighting regional breakout hits, trends and data. A panel of regional and global experts will focus on the hits of the season from the CEE territories and beyond.
