The world of children’s media and the trade in associated rights is ever more complex and ever more converging.

However the children’s media calendar has yet to reflect that convergence with a special event to connect players in the children’s media industry to trade rights and services, and build the new partnerships they need to make a success of IP and brand development in the new landscape.

The CMC Rights Exchange was such an event – designed to offer insight, partnership and sales opportunities to all companies from the worlds of Children’s Film and TV; Children’s Publishing and Authors’ Agents; and Children’s Games, Interactive and Apps.

CMC Rights Exchange provided participants with quality content and managed business networking making it a ‘must attend’ event.


The CMC Rights Exchange is conveniently situated in the fascinating surroundings of one of London’s “hidden treasures” – Two Temple Place.
