Memberships and cooperations
Like every industry, the media industry thrives on mutual exchange, which we cultivate in particular through numerous cooperations and memberships. In cooperation with some partners we are constantly working on the development of innovative, exclusive analysis products such as FirstSignals®. Our memberships in important industry associations also result in important impulses, synergy effects and joint projects.

In cooperation with prmagazin, we carry out an analysis of a current and socially relevant topic every month.
