DISCOP MENA SHIFTED TO DEC 19
Originally slated for Feb 2019, the organisers of DISCOP have shifted the next edition of DISCOP MENA to 15 to 17 December 2019 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. This strategic decision was taken based on a survey that found the ever-growing importance of Ramadan programming in the Middle East and Northern Africa, DISCOP MENA’s February dates were no longer optimal.
Patrick Zuchowicki, CEO of DISCOP Markets says: “Ten years ago, we chose to hold DISCOP MENA at the end of February at a time when Ramadan took place in the fall. By moving dates, and for the next ten years, we want to give the region’s broadcasters, premium cable channels, mobile operators and streaming platforms more time to pick and choose
Ramadan content with widespread appeal in the Arabic world.”
