A Berlin Weekend with Jim Thornton VCCP

4-6 October 2019

Berlin is perceived both nationally and internationally as a pulsating creative metropolis in which exciting ideas are developed and new trends are set. Since 2006, the German capital has boasted the official UNESCO title of “City of Design”. In addition to this, Berlin is the first German city to have become a member of the global network of “Creative Cities” founded by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. Its fascinating combination of design, art, and culture not only asserts a magnetic power of attraction on international tourists, but also draws even more people with creative ideas to the city. Berlin’s eventful historical development, its significance as the capital of Germany, its cultural openness, and the constant urban transformation offer the ideal conditions for the development of innovative ideas.


Please remember that the price includes transfers, hotels, meals where stated, entry tickets and all sorts of added extras you wouldn't normally be able to enjoy as a tourist - plus you will be in  the company of fellow creatives from around the UK, enjoy a judging session and a member of the Fresh team will be on hand to make sure your trip runs smoothly from the moment you land.
