NZZ Connect

Theme-specific ecosystems with relevant conferences

Communities, content, conferences: the cross-media trio at NZZ Connect. Together with NZZone and audienzz, attractive packages are created that extend far beyond events.

NZZ Connect, based in Bern, was established on 1 January 2021 on the merger of the Swiss Economic Forum AG with Zurich’s long-standing NZZ parent company. Customers, partners and sponsors are showcased all year round via theme-specific ecosystems. NZZ Connect offers them access to nationally relevant conferences (meetings and events) and communities (platforms and networks) – all paired with content (content-driven formats). The overall packages are developed together with NZZ Content Creation, the service-provider for journalistic storytelling working in collaboration with NZZone and audienzz, the marketing organisations of the NZZ company.

Ecosystems for the following themes are already in place:
