Key Reasons To Attend MIPCOM In Cannes
You would think that in the modern digital era, there would be no need to travel and meet people. The benefits of video conference calls and speed of data transfer means that there are plenty of options to communicate without leaving the office, but there are plenty of occasions where this is not a suitable solution.
If you want to speak to a lot of people, it is best to do so in person because it can be extremely difficult to engineer an effective form of communication for many people online. There is also the fact that if you want to meet new people and contacts, you cannot do this online until some form of introduction has been made. This can be difficult to achieve in the online community, which is why there will always be an opportunity, and indeed a need, to meet, mingle and network with people you haven’t yet but who could be vital in pushing your business forward.
This is the case for a wide range of industries but it is extremely true for the television industry. Broadcasters should always be looking for new shows, new ideas, new partners and new platforms for their content. Yes, you could do all of these things online but meeting people in person provides an easier, quicker and more reliable way to get a feeling for what is on offer.
This is why people operating in this industry should be aware of the leading congresses and conventions in the sector and it has to be said that the MIPCOM event is one of the best. It is not as if you should ever need an excuse to visit Cannes and bask in the glory of one of the most glamourous destinations in the world, but when you have a chance to develop and progress your business, you will find that there are plenty of reasons for you to head here.
