After a successful first year in Miami, NATPE REALITY is going to be double in size this year with top names and channels in genre all gathering in Miami for a robust slate of programming, the 2nd annual Breakthrough Awards and the newly launched Reality Buyers Hall. Expanding to two days, NATPE REALITY will be the epicenter of the non-scripted world with a programming track overflowing with big names and big ideas.
Unlike any other market in the U.S., our programming sessions and events at NATPE REALITY will provide attendees with an unparalleled and immersive experience in the unscripted universe. This will consist of intimate discussions, panel conversations with iconic creatives, producers, and executives, a new buyers’ hall and other features as part of the new curated track for 2016.
The Reality Buyers Hall will offer executives, producers, writers, creators and agents from all over the world a one-stop venue for meetings, networking, and the ability to interact with buyers, distributors, creators, producers and stars from every corner of the content business. It will provide the place for a high-level exchange of ideas and meetings about how to capitalize on new opportunities and emerging trends that can enhance every aspect of the reality pipeline.
Following a sold-out event this past year, we are bringing back the Reality Breakthrough Awards to honor today’s most innovative reality content in five categories: Reality, Reality Competition, Game Shows, Docusoap and Factual. The winners will be announced during a prestigious celebration on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016 at NATPE Miami. Tickets to the ceremony will be available to purchase for $90.00 online.
We have selected a blue-ribbon panel of judges for the Breakthrough Awards that will collectively select winners in each of the five categories. Judges include.
