Chairman of the Board of Management, Rheinische Post Media Group
The strength of North Rhine-Westphalia lies in its incredibly exciting diversity. Our investmenr in Bonn's General-Anzeiger is a clear commitment to our NRW location. We will actively shape this in print and digital form.
Director of Publishing Kiepenheuer & Witsch
North Rhine-Westphalia – for German-language books that means an dense network of bookshops, a large number of festivals and readings, and a large number of institutions which are vital partners for book publishers: TV and radio stations, film producers, newspapers and magazines, and above all the new web media and producers.
Christian DuMont Schütte
Chairman of the media group DuMont Schauberg
NRW stands out because it is the place with the greatest diversity of newspapers among the large-area German states. 41 daily papers with a circulation of 2.7 million copies are published here.
Managing Director Publishing DuMont Buchverlag
I know no other city where people have so much pleasure in talking with one another and at such length and where one can make contacts so quickly as in Cologne. Where could be a better place to produce books which are, above all, one thing - communication?
founder and publisher Emons Verlag
You'd think that the writers are in Berlin, the bestsellers are produced in Munich, and the hard publishing work is done in NRW. But Bastei-Lübbe can also produce bestsellers and it was, after all, from Cologne that the regional crime novel developed into fiction's most successful segment at the moment.
