INTERNATIONAL MARKET FOR ECONOMIC RECOVERY
The 2nd EU-Mexico Creative Industries Forum (FIC) is an activity organised by the Delegation of the European Union in Mexico, in collaboration with the Embassies of the EU Member States, the Mexican Ministry of Culture and the Centre for Digital Culture.
Thanks to the success and building on the lessons learned from the first edition in 2020, this second Forum aims to disseminate EU experience and key policies in the transmedia sector, consolidate the initiatives that resulted from the first forum, and identify business and collaboration opportunities between Mexican and European companies.
Due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, this activity will be entirely digital. It will consist of a set of 10 specialised webinars, from 14 to 30 June 2021, followed by 2 weeks of B2B meetings in September.
During the webinars, EU officials, technical experts and executives from private companies and innovation centres will present public policies, trends, success stories and opportunities for collaboration identified between the EU and Mexico.
The second activity will consist of virtual B2B sessions between interested participants. A dedicated marketplace and a virtual platform will be available for this purpose.
The Forum is part of the European Union's objective to strengthen mutual learning, intercultural understanding and trust between the EU and its partners. It seeks the empowerment of local cultural sectors as drivers of inclusive and sustainable development, social and cultural progress, fostering cultural diversity, innovation, as well as economic resilience and post-pandemic recovery.
