The Dubai International Content Market (DICM 2023) is set to open its doors to the global content industry on November 22nd and 23rd at Madinat Jumeirah. The event will host over 80 exhibitors from 16 countries ranging from content producers and distributors to service providers and start-ups, all of whom are eager and ready to showcase their content and offerings to regional and international buyers and visitors.
The global digital content market was estimated to be worth USD 162.9 billion last year and expected to reach USD 282.3 billion by 2032. Dubai is seen as a powerful connecting factor between regional and international markets, and events such as DICM provide a unified platform for industry players to interact on common ground. DICM 2023 will host four country pavilions, two from Korea, and one from Turkiye and Russia, setting an opportunity to explore diverse and rich content from a global market.
Prominent content and production industry players include ATV, TelevisaUnivision, All3 Media International, Eccho Rights, Inter Medya, Dubai Studio City, Caracol Television, CJ ENM, OGM Universe, Sama Art, Fantawild, TRT, ABS-CBN, TV Tokyo, SMF Animation, HA International, KBS Media and ZDF Studios, which amplifies the event's reach but also highlights the significance of DICM as a key player in the industry. DICM has witnessed an overwhelming response from the industry with over 200 buyers from 25+ countries confirmed to attend, showing a testament to the event's importance as a marketplace for fresh, innovative, and globally appealing content.
This year, DICM will introduce 'Producers Connect,' a platform dedicated to fostering co-production opportunities between content producers, streaming platforms, investors and financiers. With over 20 companies already registered, participants will explore collaborative opportunities and create content that transcends cultural boundaries. Another new initiative this year includes ‘DICM Talks,’ which will feature a panel discussion agenda of more than 30 industry leaders and key players sharing their insights on emerging trends, challenges, and opportunities in the ever-evolving content landscape. It's a space where knowledge exchange, innovation, and creativity take center stage.
