Keyfacts in English

VDZ (Association of German Magazine Publishers) represents the common interests of 490 German Consumer and B2B publishers, with 14.5 billion in revenues and 60,000 employees. With more than 9,000 journalists, 6,500 magazine titles, thousands of websites and mobile offerings, plus a fast growing conference and corporate publishing business, Germany’s magazine media sector represents one of the strongest international publishing markets across all platforms.

VDZ's 490 members represent around 90 per cent of the industry turnover and all media channels. The VDZ is composed of five federal state associations and the three professional associations for consumer magazines, B2B and confessional press.

In times of disruptive change VDZ supports its members on all relevant regulatory fields with the aim to ensure the free and independent press driven by entrepreneurs will stay competitive and relevant in the future. Well-informed lawmaking, minimal invasive regulation and sound industry self-regulation supports the pluralism and independence of journalism and the free press in Germany and Europe.
