„Innovations are born there,
where creativity and passion
„and we’ll get together.“

The cultural and creative industries with their fields of architecture, books, design, film, visual arts, performing arts, music, press, broadcasting, software/games and advertising are an important, innovative industry. It provides innovative impulses for the economy and society, in addition to its enormous contribution to growth and employment in the sector.

The state government supports the cultural and creative industries in networking, financing, founding and transferring their impulses to other areas. The three creative forums for design, film and games deserve particular mention here.

The foundation of support is the municipal level with the establishment of a contact person, the provision of spaces for development and support for networking. The cultural and creative economy is also an element of the identity foundation and regional development.

These activities have taken place in an exemplary manner in Pirmasens and the Western Palatinate and I would like to express my thanks for this commitment. The KREATIVVITTI is a central element of these initiatives and offers a broad spectrum of networking, presentation, business initiation and promotion.

I hope that KREATIVVITTI’s new edition in 2019 will again meet with a broad response in business and society and would be pleased if as many companies and interested citizens as possible visit the KREATIVVITTI. Convince yourself of the efficiency and the impulses of this industry.

I call out to the creative minds of the region and to all those interested: Come to KREATIVVITTI! Show yourself, because in this visibility there are always stimulating contacts, creative moments and perhaps also the one or other business.

„Coming together is the beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
„Working together is success.“

KREATIVVITTI 2.0 – the name says it all at this specialized fair. With this exhibition format, our economic development itself becomes part of the creative industry. An industry in which it’s all about inventiveness, even unconventional ways of trying things out. Descriptions that also apply to KREATIVVITTI.

The premiere showed that it was right to take this path, that it is right to further develop this special fair format. That it is right to present innovation that unfolds its effect far beyond Pirmasens.

During these three days, exhibitors and visitors can expect a varied programme corresponding to the name, many opportunities for information, exchange and knowledge transfer. A program that opens up interesting perspectives for both young people choosing careers and established companies.

Since 2011, the creative industry has been a focal point of the work of the Economic Development Agency in Pirmasens. The growing importance of this branch of the economy in its many facets has long had a firm place in Pirmasens. The rich cultural offer in Pirmasens, equally designed by local creative people as well as external providers, has created a great openness in the city to create new formats, to tread new paths. The atmosphere of culture and nature inspires and makes Pirmasens an ideal location for KREATIVVITTI.

Be a pioneer and contribute your ideas to give this new event format its distinctive character. As an entrepreneur or employee in the creative industry, profit from the know-how of the manufacturing and service industries, as an entrepreneur or employee in these industries from the diversity and variety of the creative industry.

We look forward to welcoming you to the KREATIVVITTI 2.0 as an exhibitor and/or visitor.
