The change will be effective October 1st, 2020.

Paul Zilk joined Reed MIDEM in 2001 and has been CEO for more than 17 years. During his tenure, Reed MIDEM expanded its business in the real estate, television, music and esports sectors. Its portfolio includes leading real estate events MIPIM and MAPIC, and entertainment events MIPCOM, MIPTV and MIDEM.  Zilk will take on an advisory role to Dominic Feltham, the EMEA President for Reed Exhibitions, for the next 12 months.

Filzi will remain as President/CEO of Reed Expositions France and will continue to report to Feltham.

Paul Zilk commented, “I am immensely proud of Reed MIDEM. We have a talented multicultural team and many wonderful partners and clients. The past 19 years have been terrific, but this is the right time to refocus my interests and energies. Following lots of preparation in recent months, I look forward to helping Michel with our transition.”

Michel Filzi noted, “Reed MIDEM has always been an innovative organiser of leading, premium quality international events for business leaders.  With Paul’s support, I am really looking forward to working with the outstanding Reed MIDEM team to create new opportunities to deliver exceptional value for our customers.”
