General Information

The APEX MultiMedia Market is the airline industry’s premier content conference that continually brings together airlines, CSPs and diversified distributors offering a range of new and acclaimed TV, MOVIE, GUI, GAME, APP and AUDIO content options. As an exclusive, community driven marketplace, the event will attract over 200 global industry professionals.

Join us at for the industry’s most comprehensive, inflight content conference for connecting buyers and sellers!

After evaluating registration trends and attendee feedback from the last few MultiMedia Markets, the Board determined that the event’s key feature is the marketplace rather than the education sessions. It was therefore decided that it was in the best interest of the association to cancel the third day in order to place the event’s focus solely on the two-day marketplace. By exclusively centering MultiMedia Market on being the industry’s most comprehensive, inflight content conference for connecting buyers and sellers, APEX will be able to provide you – our member – a greater quality of services.

Why should I attend the APEX MultiMedia Market? 
The APEX MultiMedia Market is the only global industry event focused specifically on bringing together IFE content buyers with the leading world-wide distributors of various content. This two-day conference is unique and intensive. Many airlines and content service providers use this event as the central focus for their annual content product planning. The two days are dedicated to exhibit appointments with distributors so that all airlines have the opportunity to meet with these distributors. During these two days, there will also be a separate, non-appointment area for short-subject and TV movie distributors, movie distributors, game suppliers, GUI creators and app developers – attendees are welcome to visit these booths at their leisure.  Many airlines now use this event as the central focus for their annual content product planning. Networking events are also planned.

Do I have to be a member to attend? 
Yes, you do have to be an APEX member to attend the MultiMedia Market. To learn more about benefits of APEX membership, as well as access to an online membership application, click here.

  • CSPs will be able to attend for $375 for both days.

What does my registration include?
Full registration (Monday 23 April – Tuesday 24 April) includes lunch daily, Tuesday reception & dinner, and entrance to exhibit hall.

What does it cost to book a booth with appointments?
There are two booth options for exhibitors, with and without audio visual.

What does it cost to book a booth without appointments?
The 2018 event will also include a separate area for content providers without appointments.

Do I get an individual appointment schedule or do I need to schedule my own meetings? 
If you are an airline, CSP or a distributor that reserved an appointment booth, you do not need to schedule your own meetings. Prior to the event, content provider (with a paid appointment booth), airline and CSP representatives will receive an individualized appointment schedule. Each schedule will have 40 appointments arranged over the two days of exhibits (Monday 23 April & Tuesday 24 April). Each content provider will have appointments to meet with each airline/CSP.

For content providers that reserved a non-appointment booth, you will not receive an appointment schedule. You can meet with airlines, CSPs or other content providers as their schedule permits.

What if I do not want to attend an appointment? 
We understand that you may not need the content that each provider has to offer. If you will not be attending a meeting, please contact the representative. We encourage that all airlines/CSPs visit with each exhibitor. You might learn something new!
