Agenda Setting and dialogue meets press conference by Bayernkreativ

Creating a high regional perception.

Press conference

The Bavarian Center for Culture and Creative Industries (bayernkreativ) engaged Kaltwasser Kommunikation to organize, conduct and moderate its press conference this year. The occasion for this press conference was the presentation of the trend-setting report "2nd Report Cultural and Creative Industries in the European Metropolitan Region of Nuremberg" which examines the change in the cultural and creative industries (KuK) of the European Metropolitan Region of Nuremberg.

The central result: With its increasing overall economic significance and polycentric distribution across the entire region, the sector has developed into a driver of innovation. The detailed results such as the development of the eleven sub-markets and the KuK from 2009 to 2016 and the derivation for the future are at the centre of the press conference.

The goals:

  • Sensitization of regional and national media for the creative industry as a relevant economic topic
  • Generation of more attention for the KuK and agenda setting for the core topics
  • Establishment of the central platform for dialogue and exchange with stakeholders in the creative industries

A joint press release with a qualifying period for the protagonists from business and culture provided relevant background information for local and regional newspapers, television and radio stations as well as for business media.
