Direction Marketing

The Direction Marketing (DM) was responsible for marketing the national exhibition and, in the first phase, also for communication.

The first management team of Expo.01 had a modern understanding of marketing and communication and created a separate department for this purpose as early as 1996. Important basic work, which was to remain important for the later Expo.02 project, was already realised in this visionary phase. The visual image, i.e. the logo with red ellipse and Swiss cross as well as the name Expo.01, was developed and retains its validity for the Expo.02 project. The slogan imagiNation also dates from this time. The neologism Arteplage - literally translated: art and beach - symbolised the desired Expo experience between leisure and culture. The five Artplage themes also date back to the original phase of the project. In this phase, important foundations were laid that were not only of great importance for marketing and communication, but also strongly influenced the later work of the architects and exhibition organisers.
