Weischer Media new representative

Weischer Media is the official Swiss representative of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity from 2017.


The company, represented in the Swiss market by the cinema advertising marketer Werbeweischer, has many years of experience in festival representation: Weischer Media has been the official German representative of the Cannes Festival for more than 20 years.

"Cannes Lions already has a firm place in our company history, we have represented the festival since 1996. We are very pleased that we can now also work for the "Olympic Games of Creativity" in Switzerland. This is a completely independent task, into which our previous experience can flow, but which requires and will also receive a completely unique approach," says Florian Weischer, Chairman of Weischer Media. And Christof Kaufmann, CEO WerbeWeischer Switzerland, adds: "Through our commitment to Cannes Lions, we will bring the creative ideas of this inspiring festival to the Swiss market in dialog with the advertising and communications industry and in close cooperation with proven partners."

Weischer Media has secured support for the comprehensive and expert accompaniment of the festival in Switzerland: Sibylle Widmer, a recognized expert in Cannes Lions matters for many years, will advise Weischer.Media on the representation of the Cannes Lions festival. By the way: This year, Weischer Media won silver in Cannes Lions' internal country representative contest "Representative of the Year" for overall engagement (in Germany) at the renowned advertising and communications festival.

Jose Papa, Managing Director of Cannes Lions, is delighted about the collaboration with Weischer Media in Switzerland: "We are happy that Weischer Media has accepted our invitation to represent the festival in Switzerland. They are one of our longest standing representatives in Germany, have always represented Cannes Lions brilliantly as ambassadors and will now promote and support the Swiss creative scene on the international stage. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Publicitas for their longstanding support."
