MITIL - The only International Market for Independent and Local Broadcasters, held until now in June in Vevey (Lake Geneva), Switzerland, was created to be the annual meeting platform dedicated to independent and local producers and broadcasters, both at international and European level: more than 5000 television stations of this kind exist already in Europe, organisations which do not belong to the large public or commercial networks. Many of these stations came into being during the last decade and are developing at a sustained rhythm in most countries all over the world.
The second edition of this unique event, which took place in June 2002, attracted some 300 visitors from 40 countries who were able to attend conferences, round tables and debates featuring speakers and moderators representing 20 countries; they could view all day long the 150 programmes registered at the Videokiosk (a fully electronic platform for the exchange of audiovisual content) and some 30 exhibitors presented technical solutions adapted to the specific needs of the attendees.
The first two MITIL events have provided the organisers with considerable "food for thought".
Having carefully assessed the undeniable positive elements of the first two editions and taken into account the many comments received from participants and speakers alike that there is a definite need for such an annual platform designed to meet the particular needs of independent local and regional broadcasters, the organisers have decided to give MITIL a "brand new look".
Although it had been anticipated that the next edition would take place in
2004, the organisers decided to postpone the event later.
