on of the highlights of the programme Linz09

marketing conception the communication targets
Marketing conception – the communication targets
  • Confronting the traditional image of Linz as a dull industrial city with the city’s new reality to establish the triad “Industry + Culture + Nature” as the signature feature unique to Linz;
  • Positioning Linz on the tourist map as a city located between Salzburg and Vienna, which competes with these two representatives of Austria’s cliché identity on the strength of its unjaded virtues;
  • Spreading the word on Linz as Culture Capital and the programme of Linz09;
  • Making Linzers feel proud of their city: part of Linz09’s mission was to make Linzers rediscover their own cultural identity.
