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

PITCH | CO-PRODUCE | COLLABORATE

Welcome to the ConnectED Hub where delegates can research our hosts, request meetings and watch exclusive clips from industry experts giving insight into market trends and business opportunities in Europe and the UK.
Meetings can't be guaranteed but we do our best to ensure delegates are allocated at least one and up to three ten-minute meetings from the number they've requested. Occasionally applicants are matched with a Host in the same field as person requested. The meetings are scheduled according to the Host's availability. For information about the event visit our FAQs.

APPLICATIONS FOR SPEED MEETINGS HAVE NOW CLOSED.

If you submit a request after 09.00 Monday 12 August, we will be creating waiting lists for all hosts except Director Non-Fiction Series Netflix, Sean Haycock and Nathaniel Grouille

SPEED MEETINGS

REQUEST A MEETING

Go to our Host Hub to request meetings with the 90 commissioners, distributors and producers from the UK, US, Europe, India, Australia and Canada who are hosting speed meetings at the Platform 5 Café throughout the Festival.

Among our Hosts are Festival Speakers & Panellists such as C4 Head of News & Current Affairs Dorothy Byrne who is delivering the MacTaggart Lecture this year, Head of Unscripted SBS Australia John Godfrey and SVP Development Discovery US Winona Meringolo and many more.

Speed Meetings are ten-minute one-on-one meetings that we hope will start an on-going conversation. You can request as many as you like, but will be matched with up to three by our team.
