A busy schedule for Eurodata TV!

The start of this year has been a busy time for the Eurodata TV team. Within the last month we had the team presenting the Global Dynamics of Television with a special focus on the Middle East at DISCOP Dubai. For more info see the exclusive! Further to this we moved over to Russia offering a similar presentation, giving away all of the latest content trends and usages over a breakfast & networking conference gathering major executives and managers from leading Russian broadcasters and content producers.  

We now turn our attention to MIPTV which is soon approaching as we are pleased to be offering 3 rich conferences this year! During MIPFormats we will give the latest innovative trends, new hits & how entertainment is adapting to different platforms to follow younger viewing habits. This will be followed by an opening conference on Monday morning at MIPTV, giving you the latest trends of TV & online video consumption and what innovative strategies actually enhance user experience. For the first time, Junior is coming to MIPTV on Tuesday! Our third conference will allow you to discover platforms, trends and the highest-rated kids shows from around the world!

Also coming up in the pipeline is the release of our KIDS TV Report. This report will bring you all of the trends & hits in children’s programming. It will provide you with a key analysis by country needed to understand the international children’s market. Keep your eye out for the launch mid-March!

Our clients and partners report on their successes, projects and relationship with Eurodata TV Worldwide.
Kazachok – Nathalie Chouraqui – CEO
What’s coming up for Kazachok this year?

Can you tell us more about your recent successes?

In 2016 we celebrated the 15th anniversary of Kazachok. But 15 years does not mean we are getting old! A lot of new projects are in process for 2017. In December 2016, we launched a new event called the “Keynote des Marques” by Kazachok, which took place in a famous theatre in Paris. Agents and licensors were on stage and presented their new properties and trends for 2017 and 2018 to a fully booked assistance of licensees, retailers, manufacturers and communication agencies. This new event was such a success that we already signed up for the next edition in November 2017.

What are your main projects and strategy outlines over the coming months?

In 2017, we will hold the 14th edition of the Kazachok Licensing Forum. This event reunites professionals who wish to diversify their brands and increase their visibility on new sectors. We slightly upgraded the formula, with less pitches and more spaces for one-to-one appointments.

Every year our event attracts new professionals from different sectors looking for new opportunities. More recently, we also encourage the communication and advertising agencies to come, looking for a wider scope in their promotional operations or their campaigns; without forgetting the distribution professionals who closely follow the trends to identify the right products at the right time.

We are proud to have rooted this appointment into the agendas of the professionals who say each year "We meet at Kazachok!" We take pride in supporting our loyal and new exhibitors in each edition by providing them a true networking platform in order to make the French licensing market prosperous.
The visibility of the stands is redesigned each year to surprise once again; exhibitors and visitors; providing more visibility and scope to the brands.
For this 2017 edition, several points will enhance the quality of the Forum:
- The Trends Corner: a space dedicated to showcasing licensed products based on a specific theme depending on the market’s trends.
- In the first evening of the trade, we will throw a party allowing people to discuss business.

Immediately after the forum, we will head for another new event in Spain: The Licensing Trends Day that will be held in Madrid on June 22nd. This new event will allow the Spanish actors of the licensing market to meet and discuss opportunities, as well as learning about the new trends and new licensors properties.

Finally, in November, as mentioned above, the second edition of the Keynote des Marques will take place on November 14th in Paris.

Meanwhile, we still provide our famous useful tools such as the Kazachok Licensing Mag, whose next issue will be released in mid-march and the Kit Licence Expert, which gathers data from more than 9 000 active properties, more than 1700 agents and beneficiaries, over 3600 licence-holders and more than 5700 contacts. Moreover, we still have our consulting activity, which helps in licensing strategy development and new brands identification.

How does the information provided by Eurodata TV Worldwide help you in your work?

To know the desirable markets as the ones in the licensing, marketers need reliable international audience data. Thanks to Eurodata TV, our Kit License Expert subscribers have access to certified ratings and to a continual monitoring of the TV broadcastings worldwide.

Which programmes are taking top position in European children’s markets?

Now that children have gone back to school for a few months, various titles have become children’s new friends in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.

In the rankings, new animated series have the place of honor

At the end of 2016, most of the new programmes that appeared in the best performing episodes rankings were animated series. These new titles were particularly successful in Spain, thanks to their airing on Clan. Among them were the British CGI series Bing. The little rabbit’s adventures ranked 1st in Children 4-6 with 196,100 viewers for its best episode during the last quarter of the year. The series had previously won the International Emmy Kids Award in the pre-school category in April 2016.

Also, launched on the public channel, Yoko’s best episode ranked 17th in Children 4-6 in October-December. The Minecraft look-alike series is a coproduction involving the Russian studio Wizart Animation and the Spanish companies Dibulitoon Studio and Somuga focuses on the outdoor adventures of three curious children and the magical friend Yoko.

In the same quarter in France, Simon scored high just after its launch on France 5. The colorful series is an adaptation from an illustrated book which centers on a mischievous hero and ranked 10th in both Children 4-14 and Children 4-10.

In entertainment shows, the mix of old programmes and new formats

A strong animation series, Adventure Time, gave birth to 2 new games shows. In the Italian Adventure Time: Missione Finntastica and its Spanish equivalent Hora de Aventuras: Misión ¡Zuzumba!, children and their parents compete in physical and mental games based on the original animated series. Produced by the Spanish Lucky Road Productions, both shows were broadcast on Boing and ranked 5th in Italy and 8th in Spain in All Children.

With Lunnis de Leyenda, Clan brought back to the screens the singer Lucrecia and the popular Spanish puppets the Lunnis to tell stories in a format blending animation, live-action and music. The show managed to feature in the rankings usually dominated by animated series in the country, with its best episode recording a 56.0% share in Children 4-6.

A mix of local and international live-action series start well

The end of the year has also been marked by the arrival of new live-actions programmes in the tops. In France, Nickelodeon’s Yo Soy Franky entered the rankings with a peak episode watched by 287,000 Children 4-14 (Gulli). In Spain, another Nickelodeon’s series, Henry Danger, entered the free-to-air channel Clan’s programming. It gathered 249,500 Children 4-12 and scored really high for the genre in preschoolers.

Local productions were also well received. In the United Kingdom, CBBC’s So Awkward was the 3rd most watched children’s series by Children 4-15 on its channel. In Italy, Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends (produced by Rainbow) was Rai Gulp’s top show in October-December.

In March 2017, the Kids TV Report covering July-December 2016 will provide a comprehensive analysis of the trends and hits in children’s programming.
