Why should I attend the APEX MultiMedia Market?
The APEX MultiMedia Market is the only global industry event focused specifically on bringing together IFE content buyers with the leading world-wide distributors of various content. This three-day conference is unique and intensive. Many airlines and content service providers use this event as the central focus for their annual content product planning. The first two days of the conference are dedicated to exhibit appointments with distributors so that all airlines have the opportunity to meet with these distributors. During these two days, there will also be a separate, non-appointment area for short-subject and TV movie distributors, movie distributors, game suppliers, GUI creators and app developers – attendees are welcome to visit these booths at their leisure. A full day of education will take place on the third day. Many airlines now use this event as the central focus for their annual content product planning. Relevant education sessions feature top industry experts sharing insight on topics crucial to the international content industry. Networking events are also planned.

Do I get an individual appointment schedule or do I need to schedule my own meetings?
If you are an airline, CSP or a distributor that reserved an appointment booth, you do not need to schedule your own meetings. Prior to the event, content provider (with a paid appointment booth), airline and CSP representatives will receive an individualized appointment schedule. Each schedule will have 40 appointments arranged over the two days of exhibits (Monday 24 April & Tuesday 25 April). Each content provider will have appointments to meet with each airline/CSP.
For content providers that reserved a non-appointment booth, you will not receive an appointment schedule. You can meet with airlines, CSPs or other content providers as their schedule permits.
What if I do not want to attend an appointment?
We understand that you may not need the content that each provider has to offer. If you will not be attending a meeting, please contact the representative. We encourage that all airlines/CSPs visit with each exhibitor. You might learn something new!
