Apart from having a strong IT and programming scene, the region is also home to mobile and telecommunications companies who are locally the big enablers and exploiters of online technologies. The web video scene in NRW has a leading position in Germany and brings out famous webvideo stars like Simon Unge, Dagi Bee, Julien Bam, Die Aussenseiter, Dner among others. Networking on an international level is provided by such top events as dmexco or Interactive Festival. The Film- und Medienstiftung NRW backs the development of innovative digital web content.
