The future of content creation in the Middle East

In 2024, the Middle East’s media and entertainment market is projected to reach USD 42.72 billion and grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.41 per cent to attain USD 66.99 billion by 2029. The region retains its position as a leading destination for filmed content, broadcast and satellite industries, undergoing a significant transformation from a content consumption market to a content creation hub. CABSAT 2024 is set to unveil the future of content creation and distribution, serving as a platform for the global media, entertainment and technology industry, attracting over 120 countries.

This year’s event is poised to be an exceptional edition, featuring the return of the Content Congress, which offers opportunities to explore and provide insights on the evolving media landscape;  the SATEXPO Summit which facilitates innovation within the satellite and space community and offers opportunities to form strategic partnerships; and NextGen Content, which enables screening of un-released content, further offering a platform for the region’s best content creators, distributors, and investors. It also offers exclusive spaces for engagement, discussion and innovation within the creator economy and sustainable space exploitation.

CABSAT’s collaboration with Integrate Middle East offers a platform for attendees and exhibitors to access emerging business opportunities across education, media, entertainment, hospitality, retail and communications sectors, along with the corporate, events and real estate industries.
