29 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When top executives of Endemol Shine Group gather next week at the Majestic hotel in Cannes, the scene inside the conference room might be mistaken for a United Nations Security Council meeting.

Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Israel, Russia, China and Switzerland are among the more than 30 territories that will be represented alongside the superpowers of North America and the U.K. at an extra-long table. The gathering is so large that there’s a microphone and a nameplate with country flag set out for each participant.

The brainstorming and information-sharing sessions will be held largely in English, although there will be side conversations among smaller groups in numerous native tongues. Coinciding with the annual MipTV international sales conference, the group will spend a few days talking shop, screening projects and generally arming themselves with the latest market intel.
