Our second online edition of Congress is a wrap! The three-day online event, along with five in-person networking hubs, welcomed 920 members from 41 countries. This included representatives from 14 official delegations from 23 countries, and 18 participants in our Emerging Producers Bursary Program.
Thank you to host partners ARTE GEIE and the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, and major partner Wellcome, as well as all the partners, session producers, speakers, and staff who made the event a success.
Until January 31, registered members can watch 60+ on-demand sessions, along with over 40 hours of docs in The Buzzies, the ORF-Enterprises, and the Going Circular screening rooms.
Today, we announced that the 30th annual Congress will be held late 2022 in Glasgow, UK. Congress '22, which will mark the return to a live in-person gathering after two years of virtual Congresses, is generously supported by host sponsor BBC Studios Productions and will coincide with BBC's centenary.
Congress '22 will offer a full slate of dynamic and engaging sessions exploring the latest programming trends, industry intelligence and technology impacting the factual community. The event will also mark the return of unforgettable social events. Taking full advantage of Glasgow, a city known for its rich history, stunning architecture and remarkable friendliness, Congress '22 will offer members exciting events to socialize and network after two years apart.
