Meet Face-to-Face with Meeting Exchange Executives

The Xchange program is a fantastic opportunity for content producers to gain access and meet one-on-one with leading development executives. A signature of The Banff World Media Festival, avail yourself of the opportunity to meet with decision makers who can help take your idea to the next level and put your TV or digital content into development.

Book one of these coveted time slots to meet face-to face with key industry players including broadcasters, production studios and digital publishers. There are only a limited number of meetings available, and they are booked via a lottery system which will open on May 5. After the lottery has been run, remaining meetings will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis through our exclusive Xchange system.
