NEM Dubrovnik and NEM Zagreb join to form the largest event in the CEE region that brings together the business and creative sides of the TV industry: NEM Dubrovnik Meets Zagreb

NEM Dubrovnik, the eighth edition of the most relevant business event specialising in the TV industry in the CEE region, is rescheduled for December 2020, and will be held in Zagreb during the second edition of its sister-event NEM Zagreb, appropriately named NEM Dubrovnik Meets Zagreb.

Sanja Božić Ljubičić, owner of the Mediavision company, a full-service TV partner specialising in communication, acquisition and distribution services in the TV industry, which is also organising the event, stated: “The current uncertain situation on the global level has prevented the organisation of the event planned for June in Dubrovnik as the traditional venue. We have made this decision in the hope that the situation in the world will stabilise by December. We are pleased to see the joining of the summer and winter editions of NEM into a single event – NEM Dubrovnik Meets Zagreb.”

Zagreb to host both events

The NEM Dubrovnik Meets Zagreb event will be held from December 9th to 11th 2020 in Zagreb. In this way NEM Dubrovnik will join the winter event NEM Zagreb to create three fantastic days devoted to the TV industry in Croatia, the region and the world. The event will bring together representatives from Pay TV channels, FTA channels, streaming services, telecom operators and providers of various television services, as well as numerous creative individuals, actors, producers, directors, screenwriters and others involved in the audio-visual industry seeking new knowledge and ways to develop their skills.

All the elements of the classic NEM Dubrovnik and NEM Zagreb events will be covered. Each day will be filled with panel discussions and presentations by some of the leaders in the TV industry in the world, laying out the direction of its future development, presentations of new projects and enabling us to share their broad experience. Some of the leading television companies have been choosing NEM Dubrovnik as the event where they present their new projects, so that the essential element of all NEM events has been screenings.

There will also be workshops headed by professionals who have made a name for themselves with careers abroad: creative screenwriters will reveal the secret of successful screenplays; professional team leaders will show us how to bring together a quality team and how to manage it. The workshops will also provide insight into the legal aspects of the television business: from managing TV rights, financing and sales to advice on protecting intellectual property.

Every day the diverse programme will be accompanied by relaxing networking events aimed at forming new acquaintances, the exchange of experiences and ideas, as well as making new deals.

An integral part of NEM Dubrovnik is also the TV Market which has also been moved to Croatia’s capital in order to continue the tradition of showcasing new formats and projects at one venue. This year we are introducing a new concept called TV Tech Showcase, aimed at technology companies for the presentation of innovative IT solutions that assist the development of the industry. Each company will have the additional opportunity of presenting its product or service to all attendees during a ten-minute presentation in the main hall. TV Writing Contest will once again gather professional and amateur screenwriters looking for a chance to present their work to big production companies who will grade their TV project ideas.

Just like every year, the aim of all NEM events is to provide positive change, the development of the industry, uniting the region and providing an opportunity for those who envision their projects across the border from their state or region. NEM Dubrovnik Meets Zagreb will strive to meet these goals even during this challenging year 2020.
