Kortrijk – October 26, 2020 – Cinionic, the Barco, ALPD, and CGS cinema joint venture, proudly returns as a sponsor of the 2020 META Cinema Forum in Dubai October 27-28. The third annual convention, which is the largest industry event for the Middle East and African markets, is a hybrid format this year. Cinionic’s participation demonstrates its continuous commitment to supporting the future of the worldwide exhibition community as it works to safely reopen.
This year’s event has been made free to attend for both in-person and virtual participants. Attendees are encouraged to tune in Wednesday, October 28 at 4:45pm GST (Dubai time) for a special presentation by Cinionic’s Chief Commercial Officer, Serge Plash, on Cinionic’s leading portfolio of Laser cinema solutions and Cinionic Giant Screen (CGS). CGS is Cinionic’s turnkey PLF solution for exhibitors delivering a premium presentation with bright images on giant screens.
The Middle East has emerged as a rapidly growing and successful film market in recent years, particularly after Saudi Arabia ended a 30-year ban on cinema in 2018. Since then, the KSA continues to reach new box office milestones, including a record-breaking opening weekend for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet this past summer.
The META Cinema Forum takes place online via the Zoom Digital platform and in person at the VOX Cinemas Mall of the Emirates and Sheraton Mall of the Emirates this week. For more information, visit: www.menacinema.com.
