BANFF's Speed Meetings are a fantastic opportunity for content producers to meet one-on-one with leading decision-makers. A signature of The Banff World Media Festival, this is your opportunity to connect with people who can help take your idea to the next level and put your TV or digital content into development.

Specifically designed to be 8-minute time slots, this program has facilitated thousands of one-on-one meetings and has led to many millions of dollars in new content.
