THE FIRST LOOK Welcome from NATPE’s President & CEO, Rod Perth
edicated to a global content market with a clear focus on the dynamic Central and Eastern European region, NATPE Europe continues to be an important date on the international programming calendar. It is my pleasure to welcome you again to the Hilton Hotel in the beautiful city of Prague, where we are delighted to host the major U.S. studios alongside leading broadcasters, distributors and platform providers from around the world. NATPE Europe is first and foremost a market – a place where buyers and sellers can meet and conduct quality meetings in an intimate setting. We know there are numerous events, conferences and markets calling on your time and budget – but we sincerely believe that none deliver on our commitment to offering a very cost-effective forum that facilitates conversations and deals. The regional European economic situation is currently difficult, as it is in many parts of the world. Simultaneously, the business is undergoing dramatic change, which is challenging the underpinnings of traditional business models. Viewers are migrating to new platforms, traditional distribution is being disrupted by new platforms, and the ‘Internet of Things’ will increasingly move content to mobile. But throughout this
dynamic force of change there remains a constant – which is that audiences who will view it on their own devices are demanding high-quality, diverse and engaging content, and that is why this Prague event is so important. This year, in addition to the market, we have expanded our conference offering, which is up to three sessions on Monday afternoon plus a keynote breakfast on Tuesday. Our panels will examine Global Formats, Format Futures, and International Co-Productions. We have curated an outstanding lineup of experts across each of these genres who will share the benefit of what they’ve learned, and how you will succeed by attending these sessions. Our keynote breakfast session on Tuesday is with Adrian Hodges, award-winning writer and showrunner who most recently created the BBC
television series Th
