Showbiz show planned during Dubai film festival

The Dubai Film Market (DFM) and International Showbiz Expo (ISBE) 2015 are coming together to create the world’s first 360 degree entertainment industry event for the second consecutive year.

It aims to promote the industry in fast-growing markets including the Middle East and Asia.

ISBE 2015 at The Dubai Film Market will be held at Dubai’s Madinat Jumeirah on 14-16 December during the Dubai International Film Festival.

ISBE brings together cinema and entertainment professionals from all parts of the industry. More than 2,000 trade visitors are expected. Exhibitors will include film studios, distributors, media outlets, cinema-infrastructure and technology providers, talent and marketing agencies, theatre companies and festivals.

More than 2,500 delegates from the film industry and media representing 65 countries are expected at The Dubai Film Market, the leading industry platform in the region and the gateway to one of the fastest growing film and TV markets in the world.

“We are proud to be associated with Dubai International Film festival and happy that the entire film, cinema and entertainment community will gather in Dubai under one roof,” said Ajay Bhojwani, managing director of MCI Middle East. “(The) International Showbiz Expo focusses on everything that is prior to the film being produced and the business of designing, running and managing cinemas.”
