Cartoon Network At MIPJunior 2018

Today is the opening day of the annual MIPJunior convention at the JW Marriott Hotel in Cannes, France. The convention is a yearly gathering of the international children’s media industry and is an opportunity to promote their programming and even to buy and sell broadcasting rights to and from other broadcasters. MIPJunior is a two day long side event (13th and 14th October) of the annual MIPCOM convention (French acronym for Marché International des Programmes de Communication, In English: International Market of Communications Programmes), which focuses on general entertainment and other genres usually aimed towards adults. MIPCOM will also take place in Cannes, France from Monday 15th to Thursday 18th October. MIPJunior is usually a major event for Cartoon Network. The event is more focused towards media industry professionals which is unlike a more public pop-culture convention like San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic-Con or MCM Comic-Con London.
