Photokina’s Social Media Newsroom

Photokina’s Social Media Newsroom


Organizers of the bi-annual global imaging trade fair photokina have created an online newsroom featuring the latest Web 2.0 features at the event's website.

The photokina Newsroom is the new central starting point for finding information on photokina. The latest notices from Koelnmesse will also be posted here, as well as press releases from the exhibitors, news from the sector, and current information on the press services provided for photokina.

And show organizers are quick to add that’s not all: The photokina Newsroom also enables its users to gain in-depth insights into the photokina activities through Web 2.0. Besides the programs on the video platform sevenload, users can also access the discussions on the photokina fan page on Facebook, the Tweets of the micro blogging service Twitter, or the latest pictures presented by photokina on Flickr. Everything you need to know can be found clearly displayed and up-to-date in the Newsroom.

In addition, photokina makes use of all types of media and platforms: The image and video files on sevenload, Facebook, Flickr, Twitter etc. are also included in the service, as well as the numerous possibilities for making contacts through LinkedIn or Xing. Naturally you can subscribe to receive all the latest information on the fair by RSS feeds. You can also keep up-to-date by becoming a fan of photokina on Facebook or joining the photokina groups on Xing or LinkedIn.

The launch of the photokina Newsroom kicks off a series of activities in which photokina will use social media channels over the coming months to attract all photography fans at the Web 2.0 site to the world’s leading trade fair for modern image communication.
