Joint campaign by visitBerlin and be Berlin will run until 9 November

Berlin advertises itself with worldwide image film

Berlin, 20 October 2014 Starting today, Berlin will have its own image spot broadcast worldwide by international broadcaster CNN. This joint campaign by visitBerlin and be Berlin will run until the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November. The thirty-second film will be broadcast in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, North America and Asia. The spot concludes with an invitation to the celebration of the fall of the Wall, which will run from 7-9 November.

Burkhard Kieker, CEO of visitBerlin: “Berlin and its people want to show what they have made out of their opportunity: from a divided city to one of the most exciting cities in the world.”
Melanie Bähr, CEO of Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie: “We are showing Berlin’s new image: Berlin is today a creative metropolis, start-up hub, innovative centre of technology and business and one of the most dynamic economic regions in Germany. Creative minds and traditional companies from all over the world are again attracted to Berlin.”

Using the slogan ‘Berlin 25 years later. Welcome’, the spot shows the development of Berlin after the fall of the Wall into a modern metropolis and complements the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Wall. This follows visitBerlin, be Berlin and CNN’s successful cooperation of five years ago.
