Co-Production Market
Baltic Event Co-Production Market is an opportunity to present your project to decision-makers or find the perfect project to have on your slate during an intensive two days of one-on-one meetings between project representatives and potential financiers, co-producers, and sales agents. An extra day is reserved for training with the topics covering marketing in the international environment, multi-platform opportunities, and alternative financing methods. 16 projects from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Russia, Georgia and Ukraine, and our 2018 Focus Country, Italy, will be presented. Projects from other countries looking for co-production partners or service providers in these countries are also accepted.

Baltic Event Co-Production Market has presented a grand total of 176 projects since its launch and is proud to admit that 80 of these projects have been completed and dozens are still on the road of development or various stages of production.
