Pacesetter for Dresden

Themed marketing involves focusing on a specific idea, major occasion or anniversary. Dresden has been taking this approach since 2010. And the world has taken notice. 2010 was the year of Arts and Culture, while 2011 was given over to Movement and Encounter. 2012 had Dresden as the City of Arts and Sciences, and 2013 was dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the birth of Richard Wagner. 2014 was all about Romance and Romanticism, the theme for 2015 was Creativity and in 2016 the theme was Celebration.

2018 and 2019 marketing campaign: Dresden Elbland – Moving Traditions

The theme for the 2018/2019 marketing campaign reflects the joint marketing of Dresden and the surrounding Upper Elbe region. The slogan ‘Dresden Elbland – Lebendige Traditionen’ (English: Dresden Elbland – Moving Traditions) has been chosen to present Dresden and the Elbe Valley in Saxony as a unified brand entity with an overarching marketing plan – as a single region stretching from Torgau via Meissen to Pirna, boasting multiple attractions and beautiful scenery. Visitors from the rest of Germany and beyond appreciate the city and its region primarily for the rich and living history that can be experienced at so many different locations. And that is right at the heart of the campaign, though the forward-looking mentality of the people and their lust for life has not been forgotten either.

The four new and powerful images play a visual trick. Well-known (and less well-known) landmarks appear as watery reflections of each other: the familiar Dresden skyline and the imposing Meissen cathedral, the Kulturpalast and the Staatsschauspiel Dresden, the Bundeswehr Museum of Military History and Schloss Moritzburg, the Stallhof in the Residenzschloss and street art in Neustadt. The accompanying text boxes list forthcoming events. The campaign has been conceived and designed by Haus E alltag & anders, an advertising agency based in Chemnitz, and is being implemented by Sandstein Kommunikation of Dresden. The 2018 and 2019 campaigns were put out to national tender and these were the two companies that submitted the successful bid.
