The Austrian creative industry is growth driver with a high export rate. With revenues of 18.5 billion euro, the Austrian creative industry plays an essential role in the domestic economy. Its export rate of 26% is also a clear indicator of its road to success on the international market. The creative industry has become an important factor for success and a growth driver for Austria as a business location. Within the past five years the number of companies operating in creative industries has increased significantly - 10% of all domestic companies are already part of the creative industry and every second company is also working for international clients.

For the first time ever, the well-known design fair, blickfang, took place in the Danish capital from November 9th to 11th, 2012. Around 5,500 visitors attended blickfang.
