The first ever virtual Showcase was the most attended in the event’s history with more than 1400 partners immersing themselves in masterclasses, industry insight and British programming.
Next year’s 46th annual BBC Studios Showcase will build on that success with even more unique content, bespoke sessions and chances to connect with programme makers from BBC Studios and the UK’s leading independent producers. There will be a three-day programme of virtual events running from February 28 – March 2, 2022.
Commenting on the development, Paul Dempsey, president, global distribution, BBC Studios, said: “We’re proud that BBC Studios Showcase has made the UK a key destination for the world’s content buyers but the pandemic has accelerated changes in the way we can help them discover our shows. Their terrific response to our virtual Showcase earlier this year, coupled with continued uncertainty around international travel means that we will once again bring our content to customers digitally next February. Of course, there’s nothing like meeting face to face and we are very much looking forward to the time when we can get together again”.
