Launched in 2018, ConnectED is an international hub that connects broadcasters, distributors and agents with like-minded producers and content creators from across the UK, Europe, the US, China and beyond. The hub gives key commissioners, distributors and agents across these territories the opportunity to communicate their tastes, wish lists and showcase their hits via personalised information zones containing clips, interviews and concise ‘flash cards’. It aims to make businesses more effective by helping them source ideas that fit their model, editorial and commercial needs more effectively.

The hub is made available exclusively to past and present EITF delegates, with around 2,000 global senior industry professionals attending the TV Festival each year. Users can use the hub to research international markets and trends and request speed meetings with relevant participants at the festival, which runs from 22 to 24 August in 2018.

Festival Director Lisa Campbell said:

“ConnectED’s aim is to break down barriers to creativity by sharing information that will enable the international TV community to flourish. Being a part of EITF’s international ConnectED Hub will help commissioners, distributors and agents connect with the most relevant, top flight content creators in their field regardless of their location.”
