About

KYIV MEDIA WEEK – the largest media forum in the CEE and the key media event in Ukraine, that combines the International Content Market and wide program of exclusive B2B events. 

KYIV MEDIA WEEK takes place every year since 2011, being an excellent meeting point for top players of media market of Ukraine and other countries of the region with colleagues and partners from around the world. Every year KMW gathers more than 1000 participants from 35 countries. KMW serves as a networking platform for media professionals, as well as a source of inspiration for wide audience, interested in one of the most creative and actively developing industries. 

What’s new in 2018? The global media industry is rapidly evolving. The boundaries between film, TV and other media spheres, as well as between the genres of audiovisual content and the ways of its delivery and consumption are dissolving. "New" media has already become "traditional", and technology makes it possible to integrate content into any sphere of human activity. There are no markets of "first" or "second" echelon on the media globe, and ideas are not assessed in terms of their country of origin or the budget spent on their implementation.

In 2018 KMW also breaks its traditional pattern. It will be held in a new format, allowing to expand the events range and give participants maximum access to all activities of the forum. To ensure that KMW guests will be able to visit as many events as possible and tailor an ideal program of seminars, presentations, discussions, pitchings, workshops and round tables for themselves, the traditional Format Show, Film Business, Pay TV in Ukraine and other conferences have been transformed into a number of narrow-focused thematic events. Registration for the conferences is replaced by a single participant’s badge for each day, buying which the attendees will receive unlimited access to all events of the day and the International Content Market, which will be held in the course of KMW on September 17-18.

KMW 2018 program covers all spheres of modern media business: film industry, formats, series and animation, digital technologies, kids content, radio, press, telecom, legislation, unique opportunities of Ukrainian media industry and much more – each day of the forum is filled with events of different directions. In addition to the business events that provide professional insights, participants are invited to attend inspiration talks from the world's leading media professionals, special presentations and cocktails from the partners of the forum.
