City of Content-Tour

Make it in Hamburg - A bus tour to the most successful content companies

Come with us on a tour through the City of Content and visit four successful Hamburg-based content companies in one day.

We will show you the diversity of Hamburg’s content industry and introduce you to Hamburg-based companies, start-ups and media personalities who have successfully founded their businesses in Hamburg. They all say “I made it in Hamburg!” and we say: “You can make it, too!”

Hardly any other place is home to so many important agencies, platforms and content producers of national and international significance. Hamburg has a special ecosystem in which creative content and transformative technology are combined by various players.

We take you behind the scenes of Hamburg’s most successful content companies.

The next City of Content tour will take place in December. Subscribe to our newsletter and don’t miss the application start.
