DISCOP West Asia Records Attendance Increase

The third edition of the DISCOP WEST ASIA show concluded last week in Istanbul, with organisers reporting a 27% increase in attendance.
382 companies from 61 countries and a total of 789 delegates attended the show.
"After the first day, contracts were already stacking up," said Patrick Zuchowicki, general manager of The DISCOP Organisation.
"Exhibitors were quickly confirming sales with new clients in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Russia and the Balkans as well as deals with core clients in the Middle East and Northern Africa," he added.
Co-production was also at the center of the 3-day market with the launch of a new service branded DISCOPRO, bringing together producers and potential partners around film and television projects in need of additional funding.
National pavilions set up to welcome a total of 47 independent distributors from France, the UK and Malaysia were also very busy, with delegates confirming the growing importance of Central Asia, Caucasus and the Middle East.
In order to accommodate an expected increase in attendance, the 2014 edition of DISCOP WEST ASIA will move to the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Center and is set to take place from 4 to 6 March, with the organisers already confirming strong rebooking for next year.
