Find new business opportunities via one-on-one speed meetings and pitches


Speed meetings are only available to delegates, so buy your ticket before requesting a meeting.


Launching in May : Meet the Hosts

Commissioners from the BBC, Sky, Channel 4, Five, Yle and Bonnier Broadcasting are signing up to host speed meetings at the Festival and this year ConnectED's new online speed meeting hub will make it even easier to find the perfect host. Online profiles and exclusive interviews outlining wishlists will help you target that must-have meeting with the commissioner, producer, distributor, talent manager or specialist who is most relevant to you.

ConnectED : Pitch+

Fancy pitching your idea to a panel of international commissioners in a private session hosted by top distributors? On ConnectED's Pitch+ page you'll find details of specific briefs issued by international broadcasters and information about how to apply for a closed 20-minute session to pitch your idea. Places are limited and hosts will select only the best ideas, so keep an eye on our newsletter for submission deadlines and alerts when new briefs are published.

Be a ConnectED Host

If you'd like to host a block of speed meetings, we'd love to hear from you.
