SEPC offers 45% Discount on MIPCOM Registration Fee

By Pickle  August 2, 2018

It’s raining discount for Indian delegates looking for participation at MIPCOM 2018, the world’s biggest entertainment content market at Cannes, France (October 15-18, 2018).

Service Exports Promotion Council (SEPC), set up by the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India, is offering around 45 per cent discount on registration fee mentioned on the official MIPCOM registration website, which is worth a return air ticket for the delegate to the mega M&E event.

The Government of India has identified Media & Entertainment and audiovisual services as champion sectors to realize its export potential. For the first time, SEPC will organize 61 Sq Mt India Pavilion at MIPCOM. During four days of Meetings, Screenings and Conferences, MIPCOM will bring together world’s top TV and digital content executives, including 13,800 delegates from more than 110 countries, 4,700 buyers and 2,000+ exhibition companies. The number of SVOD and digital platforms attending MIPCOM is on the rise.

Undoubtedly, MIPCOM is the finest in the global media markets that empowers delegates to network with the best business minds, capture emerging trends, listen to masterminds, create business for products and services and think innovation. It is a must attend for decision makers to grasp the new ecosystems in the media business.

Top Indian M&E companies Eros International, ZEEL, Viacom18 Media,  DQE, Toonz, Sacom, Prime Focus, Shemaroo Entertainment, IndiaCast, Ultra, YoBoHo, who are regulars at MIP Markets, have immensely benefited from exporting content and services from MIPCOM.

SEPC is offering MIPCOM delegate registration for Indian delegates on a first-cum-first served basis at Rs 70,000 (No VAT) compared to official registration cost of Rs 125,200 (including 10 per cent VAT). The registration from SEPC will entail all services and facilities for a standard registration badge obtained from MIPCOM.

SEPC has also rolled out a premium registration for Rs 80,000 which will enable Indian delegates to do meetings, display brochures, run trailers and logo branding at India Pavilion. This is the first time the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India, has extended support to Indian companies at MIPCOM. Until now, India has been one of the very few counties in the world which was not supported by the government at MIPCOM. Every country pavilion at MIPCOM is generally supported directly by the government or aided institutions of the respective governments.

“Our objective is to handhold independent creative producers, small and medium audiovisual and media services companies to participate at MIPCOM and enhance their business as well as boost India’s service potential in M&E sector,” says Sangeetha Godbole, Director General, SEPC. “The whole objective is to give Indian M&E companies better access to buyers and distributors and help them grow in the new global markets.”

SEPC can accommodate up to 45 delegates from India to be part of this initiative at the India Pavilion. So far, around 15 people have registered. The registration will be closed when the number of delegates touch 45. Over 200 Indian delegates representing 80 companies participate at MIPCOM every October.

In addition to manage and represent India Pavilion, SEPC will also be promoting the second edition of enTTech 2019 at MIPCOM. enTTech brings together the entire spectrum of Indian M&E services under one umbrella for overseas production studios and offshore companies to explore service offerings from India. In addition to the exhibition, the three day mega event covers workshops, master classes, B2B meetings and field visits, among other activities.

The Media and Entertainment (M&E) Industry is one of the most dynamic industries in India with modern technologies acting as a key enabler for providing world-class services to overseas clients/companies.

The industry is increasingly witnessing the convergence of media, entertainment and technology creating efficiencies in workflow, revenue streams and unique business models.

Indian media, entertainment and technology services are growing at an accelerated pace on the back of growing offshore services domain, especially in animation, VFX, gaming, AR/VR, film production, location and new media, among others. The Indian animation and VFX services have gained a lot of traction among the international producers and production houses.

Top Indian companies have attained leadership to provide niche cloud services for global M&E companies and studios.
