Content London has announced a full three-day format and factual component as part of the 2022 event, bringing renewed focus to the unscripted TV sector alongside drama.
Access to all sessions across drama and factual formats and will be available to all Content London ticket holders throughout the event, which runs between November 28 and December 1.
The new formats and factual component will include a dedicated three-day conference, a development market, a pitch competition and related cocktails and screenings.
David Jenkinson, Editor and Managing Director of C21, said: “As Content London returns as a fully-fledged event in 2022, we believe it is time to better serve the unscripted enterprise. C21 is the leading provider of news and information for these sectors; we also organize the International Format Awards and produce the annual report on international formats. The strength of the C21 brand will ensure that we bring the same high quality delegate experience in formats and factual that Content London has done in drama to date.
Content London will work closely with FRAPA, among other key genre players, to program and support the event.
FRAPA Co-Chair Phil Gurin said: “We are very pleased to help create a formats strand at Content London. As part of FRAPA’s “mission and services” focus, we hope to host valuable panels and workshops for young and old, veterans and new members of the format community. Content London, both in location and in its continued growth, is the perfect place to bring together global players in the format industry for great business and social opportunities.
FRAPA Co-Chair Jan Salling added: “FRAPA is delighted to partner with C21 on the Content London formats and the factual component. In a rapidly changing industry, sharing best practices in business and creativity is essential and we look forward to adding to the conference programs and sharing our global and local ideas.
This year, Content London will also see the expansion of its Development Marketplace networking zones, where customers can book private spaces and meeting tables throughout the week.
In addition to the two main venues of Kings Place and the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Content London is taking over The Lighterman and the Gas Station, which will house the meeting tables and private spaces of Development Marketplace. These are available to book in advance.
We expect Content London to sell out. Earlybird tickets are available for £899, a £400 reduction on the total event price. You can reserve yours by CLICKING HERE. Ticket prices will go up and the event will sell out.
The first speakers will be announced next week.
