MIPCOM (Marché Internationale de Programmes Communications, English: International Market of Communications Programmes),[1] is an annual trade show held in the French town of Cannes, traditionally in the month of October. It is owned and organized by Reed MIDEM, a subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions.

The event is geared towards the television industry: it is primarily attended by representatives of television studios and broadcasters, who use the event as a marketplace to buy and sell new programmes and formats for international distribution.[2] The event also features keynote presentations and panels featuring representatives of the industry discussing new trends and developments.

Prior to MIPCOM, a spin-off event known as MIPJunior is held, which is devoted exclusively to the children's television industry.
