MIP Cancun announced extended co-production and FAST strands for the 11th edition of the industry’s international content market and co-production forum for Latin America and U.S. Hispanic television, to take place on November 20-22. The additions to the conference programme come six months from opening and as MIP Cancun enters its second decade. The 10th edition in 2023 drew over 800 distributors, buyers, commissioners, producers and industry professionals from 43 countries to the networking and deal-making environment of the Moon Palace Cancun hotel and resort.

Following its debut at last year’s MIP Cancun, an extended “FAST & AVOD: Americas Summit” will be staged across a full pre-opening day on November 19, focused on monetization and opportunities within the broader advertising-led streaming sector. This latest edition in the MIP markets’ FAST series will again feature thought-leading talks and presentations from key players and companies in the space, complemented for the first time at MIP Cancun with additional pre-scheduled roundtable discussions and matchmaking opportunities.

The three-day matchmaking, market and programme will also be enhanced in 2024, with two new initiatives taking a deeper dive into the shared challenges, opportunities and issues facing producers and commissioners across Latin America and U.S. Hispanic markets. These include a new invitation-only “Co-Production Summit” on November 21 - enabling high-level networking and detailed discussion; alongside the new Co-Production Bootcamp - a series of invaluable workshops covering key insights and practicalities in areas including legal, financial, tech and sustainability running across November 20-21.

“Our second decade of MIP Cancun will be built on the same principles as our first,” said MIP Cancun Director Maria Perez-Bellière, "…delivering value, insight and opportunities. Everything will again be geared to enabling ideas to be exchanged, collaborations cemented, existing relationships re-ignited and new ones formed, with an evolved programme delivering unrivalled depth in growth areas such as co-production and FAST and AVOD sectors. We have many further exciting plans for this November which we look forward to sharing in the coming months.”

The forthcoming 11th edition of MIP Cancun is set to welcome back up a community of up to 1,000 delegates from over 40 countries, spanning buyers, producers and distributors from global studios and major players internationally and from across the Americas to the world’s largest production hub for Spanish-language content.
