The purpose of the event is to explore ways to diversify sources of financing and increase income for animation series, by reviewing public and private funds available at the European level, exploring new business models, the potential for licensing and merchandising, legal issues related to co-production contracts, and in general dealing with a wide range of topics to help animation professionals manage budgets and improve the exploitation of their projects.

With an average of 100 international participants (business leaders, investors, producers of small and large children’s content companies, broadcasters, financing specialists and “new” animation partners such as toy companies or book publishers) share their experience to help incorporate new sources of income and develop new business models.
