If you are interested in the Chinese animation market – this session is for you.

CICAF is the pre-eminent animation festival, exhibition, fan-event and market in China. It takes place in the beautiful city of Hangzhou each spring – just an hour from Shanghai. CMC is building a long-term relationship with CICAF and its International Animation & Game Business Conference (iABC) which takes place at the same time. A small CMC speaker delegation to CICAF participated in conference sessions and held market meetings. This pilot ‘mission’ supported by the UK Department for International Trade, was intended to pave the way for a greater UK presence at CICAF/iABC in future years.

Discover from CICAF and iABC just how valuable their events can be. Last year over 2,500 companies attended the Festival, and as the major domestic market for animated content- with growing international involvement – the market saw over 900 contracts signed, with significant business wins. And learn too about a special offer to companies at CMC of free registration for the Festival and Market.

DIT will be present to explain what support might be available – and this session will act as a survey of interest to build a CMC/DIT mission to CICAF in 2018.
