 Registration and Networking

On the first day of Congress, 5th June, you will have access to PIXDAYthe largest picture buyer event in France – with your CEPIC Congress pass. This is a unique opportunity for agencies to develop their network as well as their knowledge of the French market.

Meet over 250 agencies from around the world, as well as French picture buyers representing all the sectors of the industry, including the press, publishing companies, communication agencies, and new media in one single table area that remains one of the most active picture markets in the world.

Booking one of the 70 tables is highly recommended this year as CEPIC Congress and PIXDAY will share all areas of the Congress venue – Salons de l’Aveyron in Bercy – on 5th June. Make sure you have your own table for meetings and get noticed.

If you are a French agency or an international agency with an office in France, we have a hot deal for you this year. Register for PIXDAY – including three passes and a table on 5th June- and then add as many CEPIC passes and tables you want for 6th and 7th June. If your agency attends both events every year or if you have always wanted to know what the CEPIC Congress is about but could not afford the travel and accommodation costs, this is an offer you can’t miss.

On 6th and 7th June, the table area will go back into CEPIC Congress mode with two more days of non-stop agency meetings.
