The EBU Creative Forum is the first annual event for screening programme formats with only public service content from Europe and beyond. The Creative Forum is not a pitching session. Every format shown has been broadcast in the country of origin.

The audience at the Forum has the chance to experience 20 to 25 of Europe’s most recent, innovative, enthralling and touching television programmes in all genres - from pure entertainment to factual, from religion to education, from show to documentary. It is also an opportunity to meet the creators and producers to learn more about the formats and share experiences.

This unique forum offers EBU Members and organizations from other public service broadcasting unions worldwide the opportunity to exchange TV formats, share production and studio facilities, and pool their creative potential.

The Creative Forum also includes public service broadcasters from outside Europe, such as Asia, Canada and the USA. It is organized by the EBU in close cooperation with the Eurovision Formats Core Group (SVT, ZDF, RTÉ, BBC and France Télévisions).

The Creative Forum has also been the starting point for several success stories. Various formats have been adapted for other markets and awarded prizes.

At the end of this one-day event, TV professionals from all over the world are invited to elect their 3 favourite formats.
