Media & creative industries

Communication with movers, shakers and markets

Leipzig, once the world's leading centre for printing and publishing, is now an attractive media location with a young publishing scene. As the largest German reading festival, the Leipzig Book Fair attracts not only more than 200,000 visitors, but also publishers from all over the world to Leipzig every spring. 

One of the hallmarks of the segment with the highest turnover, information and communication technology, is networking with other sectors of the economy that can rely on creative ideas as well as applicable innovations – whether it’s in the area of logistics, health or environmental protection.

The city is also home to Central German Broadcasting and numerous TV production companies, which use the studios in Media City, among others. The annual Designers' Open exhibition at the trade fair grounds and numerous locations in the city centre bears witness to this creative work.
