NATPE Budapest delivers a three day event providing unparalleled access for local production from that region to the world from 27–30 June, 2016 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Budapest.  Get a first look at fresh content held just after the LA Screenings.  Give your industry leaders the edge on monetizing their projects. 

NATPE Budapest is a catalyst in the content revolution - providing the Central and Eastern European media industry with a dynamic market. While remaining a market for buying and selling, NATPE Budapest is also focused on discovering original programming to become the bridge between Central & Eastern Europe and the broader international buying and distribution community.

NATPE Budapest 
Market and Content Summit is the companion to our highly successful Miami-based international content market held January 19-21, 2016. Focusing on Central and Eastern Europe, NATPE Budapest brings key regional buyers and global sellers together in an intimate market setting which allows for quality meetings where new business relationships start, and deals are closed.

Our return to Budapest represents a continued belief in the growth of the Central and Eastern European countries and their growing television and content businesses. Creative and production communities will be featured during the four-day event at the facilities of the Intercontinental Hotel in Budapest, providing unparalleled access for local production from that region to the world.. Buyers also get a ‘first look’ at U.S. studio programming – vital for those who aren’t able to attend the LA Screenings in May. 

NATPE has made it a priority to attract top buyers, increase connectivity and help maximize deal flow resulting in revenue. The four-day Market & Screenings:

In 2015, the Content Market and Summit attracted 350+ key buyers from 45+ countries.

  • 152 exhibiting companies
