NAPTE Global & RealScreen Summit announce 2024 Miami co-location

March 6, 2024

InterContinental Miami will be the venue for both NATPE Global and RealScreen Summit from Feb 3rd to the 7th

Brunico Communications, the parent company of Realscreen Summit and NATPE Global, is responding to the strong market appetite for an all-encompassing must-attend event that kicks off 2025 and brings together these two leading conferences in a single destination.

The 2025 editions of Realscreen Summit, the largest and most influential global unscripted industry gathering, and NATPE Global, North America’s premier content marketplace, will co-locate at the InterContinental Miami hotel.

Spanning the week of February 3-7, each event will retain its own discrete agenda and programs while providing attendees the option to seamlessly participate in both markets. Realscreen Summit will kick off the week, followed by NATPE Global, with a mid-week crossover day bridging the two events.

The co-location is designed to provide unmatched production and distribution dealmaking opportunities to attendees of both events, make attendance and exhibition more efficient, and allow delegates to conduct a broader range of business in one trip.

The events will be co-led by NATPE executive director Claire Macdonald, who will helm the sales effort as SVP Revenue NATPE & Realscreen, while Realscreen EVP Mary Maddever will lead the content teams as Executive Content Director for both events.

The first NATPE x Realscreen collaboration kicks off in June at NATPE Budapest, with a Realscreen-branded format track as part of the agenda.

“In this challenging climate, clients and buyers alike have asked for a single market that meets the full scope of their business needs across their organizations,” says Russell Goldstein, President and CEO of the event’s owner, Brunico Communications Ltd. “In response, we’re creating the most comprehensive North American-based content market available and an unbeatable value proposition.”

Maddever adds, “Realscreen is known for its unparalleled curated networking and pitch experiences, which align perfectly with NATPE’s focus on creating a vital cross-industry space for cultivating domestic and international business relationships.”

“Our stakeholders are looking for the most efficient and cost-effective way to conduct business,” says Macdonald. “This provides an exceptional forum to maximize commercial opportunities on both the finished sales and commissioning ends of the spectrum.”

NATPE Global x Realscreen’s 2025 edition sees NATPE return to InterContinental Miami. The 2024 edition of NATPE Budapest runs June 24-27, and is once again at the InterContinental Budapest.
