Managing Director RTL Mediengruppe
NRW is one of Germany’s most important media locations. Cologne is especially important, above all in the sector of the major entertainment shows and long-running series. We see the functioning network of creative minds, producers and service providers, and the media group RTL Deutschland’s geographical proximity to a large number of production companies as a key factor in our success.
Director-General Westdeutscher Rundfunk
The media region NRW – this is WDR´s home. And we are NRW´s and the media landscape’s home. That´s how it is and how it should remain. We want to be and continously will be a good partner for all the creative players – with the courage for innovation, the aim for quality and the wish to improve the cultural landscape – to the benefit of all parties.
CEO Deutsche Telekom
Deutsche Telekom is not only providing society with infrastructure. We are also a reliable companion in the digital world. Both privately and professionally. Anytime and anywhere. Simplifying and enriching people's lives - that is our mission. NRW is the home from where we take on this responsibility - also in partnership with the media.
