MIPTV in Cannes April 2010 the place to be this year #miptv

 In conference

I’ve just seen the details for this year’s MIPTV to be held in Cannes April 12 – 16th.

From the conference agenda – where else would you find Shine Group’s Elisabeth Murdoch and Joanna Shields, News Corp’s Jonathan Miller, Sky’s Jeremy Darroch to name just a few in the same room.

MIP Digital kicks off with a by-invitation executive brainstorming huddle featuring 40 senior leaders from the highest ranks of digital entertainment.

Companies set to attend include YouTube, Hulu, Facebook, AOL, Channel 4, The Walt Disney Company, France Télévision Interactive, Paramount Digital Entertainment, Starz Media, ITV Marvel Entertainment and RTL Group, amongst others.

A pretty impressive list of people I am sure you would agree.

More information from the conference site…

MIPDIGITAL is the new name for the digital conferences, networking events and showcases; including Content 360 and the VIP Digital Summit.
