Submit Your Rights/Pitch Session
We have created a form for dealmakers and rights people to submit information about your upcoming virtual rights/pitch sessions. You can include individually-scheduled events as well as “official” Frankfurt pitch webinar slots. We will share a crowd-sourced schedule, and try to cross-reference or cross-promote the schedule with our pre-Frankfurt deal reports to help the market keep this strong dealmaking trend going.
