Jan Salling to keynote at KMW’s Format Show 2017
MRM announced another section of their Format Show conference and screening that will be held on September 18 in the course of Kyiv Media Week 2017. Jan Salling, co-chairman of FRAPA and CEO of Missing Link Media (Denmark) will deliver a keynote speech titled 10 Things You Should Know Before You Sell Your Formats Internationally.
Jan Salling started his TV-career almost 30 years ago as producer. After working as Producer, Executive Producer and Head of Production for some years he ended up taking the position as Managing Director from 1998 – 2001. He then joined the distribution arm Zodiak Television World as Vice President where he helped build up a very successful global distribution-business. After more than 10 years in the Zodiak Group he left to join Nordisk Film TV World (later renamed as it was acquired by Banijay International) as Head of Sales in early 2007. Jan Salling left Banijay International in May 2010 and became COO and Sales Director of Nordic World.
In June 2015 he left his role as COO to start up his own format company called Missing Link Media – with the simple business model to be "the missing link" between IP owners and international distributors.
Jan Salling has been on the board of FRAPA since September 2012 and now serves as Co-chairman of FRAPA. The mission of the Format Recognition and Protection Association is to be the home of the international format business by providing protection and information for producers, creators and distributors all over the world.
