Conferences & Events - MIP CANCUN


What to expect from MIP CANCUN Conference Program this year?

The fast track to demystifying the new disruptors in TV distribution

The number of FAST channels is exploding across the Americas. Who are the main players in the distribution arena, both in FAST and in other new, disruptive models such as IPTV (internet protocol TV)? How are they changing the TV universe, and what are the opportunities, both regionally and locally? 

Join the marketplace for content in LatAm

Keep up with the buzz in TV content trends across the Americas as well as in local Latin American markets. What’s on the slates of key producers, and what are the leading buyers and commissioners looking for? Join us at the leading face-to-face, all-in-one-location market for LatAm and US Hispanic TV programming.

A diverse approach to innovative & profitable storytelling

Diversity on screen and behind the camera is critically important to connect authentically with today’s diverse audiences. In the Americas, how far are we along the road of authenticity through diversity, whether diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or other differences? What still needs to be done and how can we do it? 

Acceleration production across the Americas via partnerships & alliances

Global studios teaming up with local producers leads to the creation of more premium content that stays relevant to local audiences. As a producer or content creator in the Americas, how can you make the most of the opportunities for partnerships and alliances with the big, global studios, including opportunities for co-financing and distribution?

WAWA 'Woman of the Year' Award

The Worldwide Audiovisual Women's Association (WAWA) was created at MIP CANCUN in 2016, and returns to its origins to celebrate the Woman of the Year for the first time in an event open to all participants at the industry’s leading audiovisual content and co-production market for the Latin America and the US Hispanic territory.

The event, named "Stronger Together", will take place on Wednesday November 15th in the Cancun Theater of the Moon Palace Hotel & Resort as a prelude to the market’s opening party.

The WAWA Woman of the Year is the association's most prestigious award and celebrates the most outstanding professional of the year, based on the values of Leadership, Ethics, Diversity, and Commitment to building and strengthening a more inclusive industry for everyone.

The selection of the winner of the WAWA Woman of the Year award began in May, with a first round of voting that selected the three nominees. Currently, until the end of July, all active members of the organization are voting for the winning candidate. The winner will be announced at the event on November 15th.
