Business Opportunity

During Kidscreen, it is the opportunity to make it easy for Canadian producers, broadcasters, creators of children’s content to meet, pitch, screen, collaborate and network in one unique Canadian delegation area. It is a key forum for discussion among producers, broadcasters, distributors, creators and professionals from the television and digital media industry. It’s a unique opportunity for representatives from the various sectors of this industry to forge and strengthen ties in an environment conducive to sharing ideas and knowledge. Building this type of synergy among all players is critical in this evolving industry.
