SND 2014 workshop set for Frankfurt, Germany

Scenes: Some of the venues of 2014 Frankfurt: The Frankfurt am Main Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Kameha Suite, and the city’s skyline.

Following a detailed proposal from SND’s Region 16 SND/DACH (German-speaking countries) director Stefan Knapp, the SND board of directors voted to host the 2014 annual workshop in Frankfurt, Germany. The motion was accepted Wednesday in Cleveland with a unanimous vote at the fall SND board meeting, pending a formal contract letter. The workshop will be September 25-27, 2014 in the Frankfurt am Main Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Kameha Suite.

“I am very happy that SND’s annual gathering will be in Europe again for the first time in 15 years,” said Knapp. “I’m excited that the Board chose Frankfurt to host its international annual meeting and workshop in 2014. Frankfurt is not only the most international city in Germany, but also represents one of the most creative regions known worldwide for its news design. It will be a great pleasure and our honor to welcome our international guests, colleagues and friends to Frankfurt. Save the date!”

“SND has had members from Germany since its founding, and they have had a great presence in our organization. It’s incredibly exciting to think about a 2014 workshop there, and to celebrate our international character where the printing press was first introduced to the world,” said Stephen Komives, executive director of the Society.

More details about the program, sponsors and partners, the city and travel tips will come soon, said Knapp. Stay up to date on news from across Region 16 on

Der Kongress wird vom 25. bis 27. September 2014 in der Industrie- und Handelskammer Frankfurt am Main stattfinden.

„Ich freue mich sehr, dass ich die Kolleginnen und Kollegen überzeugen konnte und den jährlich stattfindenden Kongress nach 15 Jahren wieder nach Europa bringen zu dürfen“, sagte Stefan Knapp, SND Regional-Direktor der deutschsprachigen Gruppe. „Und ich bin natürlich sehr glücklich, dass Frankfurt den Zuschlag erhalten hat. Im internationalen News Design spielt Deutschland eine tragende Rolle und insbesondere Frankfurt gilt hierbei als eines der kreativen Zentren. Es wird uns eine grosse Freude und Ehre sein, unsere internationalen Gäste, Kollegen und Freunde in Frankfurt begrüssen zu dürfen. Save the date!“

„Seit unserer Gründung im Jahr 1979 sind die deutschen Zeitungsmacher mit von der Partie und es ist grossartig, den internationalen Charakter der Society for News Design und unseren Kongress in dem Land zu präsentieren, in dem Johannes Gutenberg die Druckkunst revolutioniert hat“, sagte Stephen Komives, Geschäftsführer der Society for News Design.

This is great news. Maybe we can get the SND participants to the Gutenberg Museum and Type Lab in Mainz a half hour train ride away.
