The 22nd edition of IDFA Forum has come to an end. A total of 50 projects from 20 countries were presented in various pitch set-ups. More than 750 meetings between the pitch teams and the decision makers present were scheduled by the Forum team. We hope that the Forum 2014 proved to be fertile ground and that the proposed collaborations will be finalized soon.

IDFA Forum 2015 will take place November 23–25. The deadline for project submission is September 1. The entry form will be available in MyIDFA from July 2015. The deadline for accreditation is October 10.
