With all the talk about multi-platforms at MIPCOM 2010, it’s hardly surprising that MIP should start getting even more cosy with the mobile world. So the news is that Reed MIDEM and the GSMA, the body that represents the worldwide mobile industry and which also produces the Mobile World Congress and Mobile Asia Congress events, have announced the launch of the Connected Creativity Forum, the first conference and exhibition specifically designed for the global entertainment and technology marketplace at MIPTV in Cannes in April 2011.
The Connected Creativity Forum will bring content creators and distributors from all creative industries together with mobile operators and others in the broad mobile ecosystem, including makers of smartphones and tablets, connected consoles and networked television. As such it will be a unique platform through which the technology and entertainment communities can meet, share key industry insights and perspectives and “catalyze new business opportunities”, as the press release points out. A showcase of the latest technology and interactive content is also planned.
