NATPE Global announced some new US entertainment and television giants confirmed as exhibitors for its upcoming event, including Fox Entertainment Global, Lionsgate and Paramount Global. The return of NATPE Global will take place on January 16 to 18, 2024, at the InterContinental Miami.
“Our vision of a global marketplace based in North America is taking off, and the buy-in from these major US studios as anchor exhibitors confirms it. NATPE Global is back and set to reinvent its importance on the international industry calendar. We could not be more pleased with the momentum and industry support we are receiving,” said Claire Macdonald, Executive Director of NATPE Global.
“As we continue to chart Fox’s re-emergence into the international arena with Fox Entertainment Global’s growing slate of content, it is more important than ever to personally engage with friends, old and new, for critical discussions about moving forward together in this fast-changing industry. Ever since MarVista Entertainment was formed 20 years ago, NATPE has been a great way to start the year strong, which has allowed us to establish meaningful partnerships worldwide and successfully build our business," added Fernando Szew, Chief Executive Officer of Fox Entertainment Global and MarVista Entertainment.
