The OPENING INDUSTRY DAY has been evolved by the close collaboration between The Financing Forum for Kids Content and KIDS Regio. It has been established as an annual knowledge exchange hub for professionals dealing with the development of children's screen content. The objective is to support and improve the development, production, financing, distribution and access of media content for children by recognizing the specifics of the young audience interests and increase young audience’s engagement and viewing of innovative, high quality and multi-faceted children’s content across Europe.

The Opening Industry Day 2018 is also held in collaboration with Creative Europe Desk  Netherlands.
