Strong Creative Location
ADC President Dr. Stephan Vogel: “Hamburg has been a great host in the past three years. The huge support given by Hamburg in hosting one of the biggest creative festivals in the world not only led to record participation, but also underlines the strength of the creative and media location Hamburg. Therefore, Hamburg will also be the host of the festivals in the years 2016-18.” The decision by ADC was taken unanimously.
“We are pleased that the ADC will stay with us in the years to come. The festival befits Hamburg, as it brings together creative excellence, digital vanguard and successful business”, says Dr. Carsten Brosda, Head of the Senate Chancellery Department of Media.
