In 2016, the 500th anniversary of the German Beer Purity Law will be celebrated throughout Germany. This general interest has inspired the Nuremberg Convention and Tourism Office (CTZ) to take a comprehensive look at culinary topics and local cuisine. Typical food and drink of the region is currently trendy and surveys show that guests gladly and intensively take advantage of the wide spectrum of gastronomic offerings in Nuremberg. The CTZ will use this topic as a marketing focus in the long term, in addition to its core themes of art, culture and events; shopping; the region; business; "an obligation to the past" and the Christmas Market. The medium-term marketing strategy of the Nuremberg Convention and Tourism Office is based on what Nuremberg has to offer and market research and trend scouting. This defines the yearly focus and core themes which are then supported by target-group-specific communication in national and international target markets. Once again, the CTZ has gathered together the diverse range of offerings in the city and will share information and create publicity - all concepts are developed in close cooperation with the hotel and restaurant association. A new strategic partner is also bringing its ideas: Since January 1, 2016, the Nuremberg Sausage Protection Association is working together with the CTZ.
