Marketing for Bremen

Bringing together the activities that promote investment in Bremen

In its role as service provider, Bremeninvest integrates marketing activities that promote Bremen as a location. We act on behalf of various marketing stakeholders and network and coordinate their work as part of an umbrella brand strategy.

We channel public and private funds into high-profile ventures, fund cultural and sporting events, provide advice and support for projects, and develop marketing concepts for Bremen.

We have three main objectives:

  • To increase the number of visitors to Bremen
  • To raise the profile of the city
  • To enhance the city's image

We also function as a marketing agency for Bremen's authorities and institutions and are responsible for advertising Bremen in public spaces in the city.
