CABSAT: Where Content Connects

The MENA region's event to buy, sell or co-produce filmed content for the Arabic Market


As the global spend for Media and Entertainment is set to soar to an unprecedented $2 trillion by 20181, it doesn’t come as a surprise that over 60% of our C-level attendees cite ‘buying new content’ as the most important activity for business success in the coming years.

The MEASA region is forecast to be the biggest global contributor to this growth at a CAGR rate of 11.5% and is anticipated to reach $66 Billion*. This growth is driven by the insatiable appetite of audiences in this region to consume the latest, original or globally acclaimed content.
*McKinsey Global Outlook Report


Securing the latest and most popular filmed content is the key to success in the entertainment media industry within the MEASA region. Brought to you alongside the 23rd edition of CABSAT – the longest running Media and Entertainment event in the region - Content Marketplace will provide an engaging platform for content creators, distributors and buyers in the Middle East and Africa and will gather the most powerful regional and international brands in one marketplace. 

Content Marketplace has become the ultimate event for buying and selling content in MEASA.



Events like Content Marketplace give us an opportunity to get engaged in intellectual discourse about where the industry is going and most importantly being able to see firsthand how consumer trends are changing

David Butorac, CEO at OSN


Each person in at Content Marketplace and in the global community has a passion around this ‘thing’… and this thing is a piece of great CONTENT
