Medien LIVE in Cologne - coming up shortly...
The weekend of the
media - live and free of charge for every member of the family
23. and 24. June: The media world opens its gates at the Tanzbrunnengelände of KölnMesse: Medien LIVE 2001, the biggest media event in Germany, invites you to travel through the interesting world of well-known film- and TV productions as well as the digital Radio and Internet world.
The visitors will be presented with a versatile programme: autographs, games, special activities, concerts, shows, product novelties and a world of information. Before the medienforum NRW starts, interested visitors can get to know the great media world and have a glimpse behind the scenes. Medien LIVE - the name itself stands for the programme: media activities in which you can actively participate, stars you can talk to, information about media professions and fun, fun, fun!
With more than 300.000 visitors, Medien LIVE turned into the biggest public media event in Germany. Contrary to the years before, the multitude of media organisations does not present Medien LIVE any more in the city and the historic part of Cologne. The organisations moved the event to the Tanzbrunnengelände of KölnMesse.
The organisers of Medien LIVE, the Staatskanzlei of the federal state of Northrhine Westphalia (NRW) and the Landesanstalt für Rundfunk NRW, made a programme their priority that was created for the families, above all. TV companies, e.g. Super RTL and the Disney Channel, provide the proper care for the children and special activities for the youngest visitors in the 'Kinderland'. The big Saturday night VIVA concert with hot music from bands like "Right Said Fred" and "Loona" will attract a young audience. Another attraction is the traditional event 'Medienberufe/Hochschultreff von Generation M': 70 organisations provide information about the job possibilities, ways to get there and further education offers of the media and communications industry.
The Medien LIVE 2001programme, a map of the territory and a lot of further information can be found on www.medienlive.de.
Note for the editors: Prof. Dr. Miriam Meckel, Secretary of the State of Northrhine Westphalia, will be present at Medien LIVE on Saturday, 23. June. Meeting-place: Gate of the Generation M Hall, 14 h 30.
