MIPCOM CANNES. A healthy set of confirmations four months out from the market, with more being added daily, demonstrates the huge appetite for the return of a full strength MIPCOM. And, unhampered by last year’s travel restrictions, to meet increased demand we have a supersized edition planned for this October in Cannes.”
