Mediennetzwerk.NRW – Our mission
On behalf of the State Chancellery of NorthRhine-Westphalia we support the development of the digital media industry through sustainable networking and placement activities, both within the industry and across disciplines. We offer founders and young creatives a comprehensive range of advice and information on funding and financing in NRW. In this context we collaborate with our local partners Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, Mediengründerzentrum, NRW.Bank and others.
We create visibility for the digital media location NRW and its companies at trade fairs and markets in Germany and abroad. Let's talk about how we can help your business. Contact us to learn more about our portfolio and meet our team of networking experts and event managers at events and trade fairs.
Thanks to support from the Mediennetzwerk.NRW, the development of the media industry in North Rhine-Westphalia is being given an additional boost.
We offer a comprehensive range of services and information for start-ups, young creative forces and companies. Our goal is mainly focused on targeted international networking of NRW players at trade fairs and markets at home. Our main industry events are the GameDevs meeting „Gametreff NRW“, the YouTubers meeting „Content Creators Club“ and our networking event „Match me if you can“ – twice a year across all media sectors. We offer international networking opportunities via presence at gamescom, Slush Helsinki, Tokyo Game Show, GDC San Francisco and others.
Gamescom is the leading European trade fair for digital game culture. The “Digital Media Region NRW” presents itself with a joint booth in the business area. For three days, this booth will be a central meeting place for the industry – for example, in pitchings and the gamesmatch@gamescom.
In addition, game developers from NRW have the opportunity to present their games and prototypes in our gaming area.
Gametreff NRW is a networking event that invites you to exchange ideas within the games industry.
“Match Me If You Can!” is a networking event that invites you to cross-sectoral exchange of the media and creative scene. We always have network partners from the Digital Media Region NRW at our side who actively support us. In the past, these were amongst others Film- and Medienstiftung NRW, ifs internationale filmschule cologne, Cologne Game Lab, Mediengründerzentrum NRW and Creative Europe Desk NRW.
