The Great International Day – Strategies for the New Media Markets

Thursday, October 9, 10.00-17.00 hrs,


By the Chamber of Industry andCommerce of Cologne, in co-operation with the City of Cologne and the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and HMR International


In order to generate added value, traditional media companies have to develop ways of strategic and content networking with international partners. Taking a look at the international media landscape it appears particularly promising, to develop program co-operations with the big markets from China, Turkey and Brazil. The countries’ enormous audiences and their rapidly growing program needs make these markets of great interest, especially for German program executives.

THE GREAT INTERNATIONAL DAY shows how the three markets work and additionally provides connections of relevant media entrepreneurs from there and German program executives to explore potential future collaborations.
