2019 Export awards winners: Cineplexx Kinobetriebe GmbH


The annual export prizes recognise the extraordinary achievements of Austrian companies on international markets. They have been awarded by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs since 1994. This year’s gold award in the ‘tourism and leisure’ category went to Cineplexx Kinobetriebe GmbH.

Founded as Constantin Film Österreich in 1951, Cineplexx Kinobetriebe is now Austria’s leading film distributor, and has recently taken on the Austrian distribution of Paramount Pictures productions. Cineplexx International was founded in 2008 to drive international growth, and the company is currently represented in eleven countries across Central and Southeastern Europe.

Transferring knowledge from the Austrian domestic market  – initially to neighbouring countries, and then further and further afield – is a classic recipe for success and has made Cineplexx Kinobetriebe a key player in the central and southeast European entertainment sector. It has also made Cineplexx an innovation driver, building Greece’s first IMAX cinema in 2018 and the first MX4D motion-based cinemas in Croatia and Serbia the follow year, having already converted all its cinemas in the Balkans to digital technology by 2011.

The Cineplexx group employs some 1,500 staff and has a turnover of approximately EUR 140 million.
