At the event, Business Wire also presented another media event as part of its event series. Around the topic “Public Relations in the age of communication 4.0 – are women better communicators?” Business Wire drew attention not only to the changes occurring in the communications industry, but also to the challenges and opportunities women experience in the PR sector. The media event was moderated by Mrs. Christine Riedmann-Streitz, Managing Director of Marken Factory GmbH and author of “Will there still be brands in the future? Hybrid brands – a vision for the future of strong brands“, which was published by Springer Gabler.
More than 500 visitors came to the Future Convention in the new Langen town hall to learn about ideas and concepts for the future of business and society. Thirty-three Future Award finalists presented their projects, and eight among them were awarded prizes during the evening.
The Future Award was presented for the twelfth time this year. For the first time, Future Convention visitors were able to decide who the winners should be. “Audience voting strengthens the network character of the Future Convention, and this is entirely in line with our goal of promoting interdisciplinary, cross-industry dialog”, says Anja Basta, Project Manager for Future Initiatives at DVPT.
Ralph Dittmar, Regional Sales Manager at Business Wire, commented on the young talents’ dedication: “It is incredible what these young people achieve. Despite being aware of their low chances of succeeding in marketing their products in today’s fast-moving world, they still have the courage to implement their ideas. It is the spirit of these young thinkers that makes us all winners.”

FCF: Greenpeace Allegations Unfair and Deceptive26.5.2018 21:02 | Tiedote
FCF Fishery, Co. President Max Chou today released the following statement regarding recent misleading Greenpeace human rights abuse allegations made against the company: “We realize that as one of the world’s largest marine products integrated supply chain service providers with more than 30 subsidiaries, fishing bases, and shipping agents around the world, we are a prime target for organizations seeking to garner publicity and those not fully aware of the latest development and improvements that are currently taking place in the fishery industry. However, in their efforts to curb egregious human rights abuses, we believe it is unfair and deceptive to lump our company in with those who condone cruelty and neglect of their laborers. “Although we recognize the meaningful work of Greenpeace in exposing and eliminating human trafficking and sustainability abuses, we are equally disappointed that they are implicating FCF in old incidents and cases that have since been in all instances addr
