The National Association of Television Program Executives (NATPE) announced the move of its flagship international content marketplace and conference to Baha Mar Resort and Convention Center in Nassau, The Bahamas. The annual conference will again be the first major international content industry event of the year, taking place January 17-19, 2023.
Under the theme “Content, Networking and Monetization,” the program will include thought leadership sessions and curated networking meetings with top programming decision makers and executives spanning content production, distribution, marketing, advertising, finance and data. Networks and streaming platforms, local and global broadcasters, media buyers, and investors will come together for three days of top-level discourse about moving the industry forward, sourcing deals and networking.
NATPE will also produce exclusive and curated meetings with buyers focusing on Drama, Unscripted, Kids and Factual programming, providing access to global distributors and producers eager to navigate the international acquisition marketplace.
“After many months of research and discussions with our partners, we have greenlit the move to this bold new destination. Our aim is to ensure that we provide added value and new revenue opportunities to attendees across the content ecosystem. With hundreds of new exhibition and activation options and over forty restaurants and entertainment venues across three hotels, Baha Mar is perfect for both business meetings and the networking that has made NATPE an industry staple for decades. But, most importantly, we have secured cost efficiencies and safety measures that will make this experience a great one for all. The response from our community is not only enthusiastic but outlines a clear path for sales meetings on-site with their global teams,” remarked JP Bommel, President and CEO of NATPE.
