Good content transcends geographical, linguistic and cultural boundaries – true! But what is not visible are the tireless efforts of scouts, agents, publishers and IP companies, among many others, in showcasing content in international markets.
Often, the fragmented content publishing and distribution sector hinder compelling content, be it a novel or a Film or an audiobook, from reaching a global audience.
The New York Rights Fair is set to change the current scenario.
For the first time in the history of content, all stakeholders related to the publishing and distribution of content across all formats – print, digital, audio, TV and films – will come on the same platform to discuss, negotiate and buy or sell titles from around the world.
Slated to be held between May 30 and June 1, 2018, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City, the New York Rights Fair is the first adult and children’s content and licenses marketplace.
The event venue is centrally located and easily accessible by train, subway and taxi. Metropolitan Pavilion is surrounded by swanky restaurants, art galleries and chic shops so that you can mix business with a lot of fun.
