Pool Promotion

 

Pool Promotion has been developing creative, customised and effective strategies for some of
the best talent in the industry, for more than 20 years. Combining personal relationships and
communication together with industry knowledge, expertise, passion and dedication equips us to
deliver consistent German national media coverage throughout our enviable network of industry
influencers and heavyweights. We focus on all national radio stations and provide a combined
strategy encompassing online visibility, press coverage and club promotions. Our proven approach
has paved the successful careers of German gold and platinum acts as Adel Tawil, Cassandra Steen,
Ich + Ich, Joris, Rea Garvey, Silbermond, Söhne Mannheims and Xavier Naidoo, as well as international
superstars including Adele, Anthony and the Johnsons, Björk, Janet Jackson and Louane – to name just a few…

Pool Promotion celebrates the electronic music scene, representing Artists like Dennis Ferrer,
Fritz Kalkbrenner, Loco Dice, Lost Frequencies Route 94 and Ruefues – just like back in the
days when we started, with Armand van Helden, Bob Sinclar, Boris Dlugosch, Mousse T. and
Paul van Dyk…just a few examples…all artists are listet under our archive button.

Pool Promotion is the only music-focused thinktank where promotion, consultation, booking
and artist profiling are considered as an over-all concept. We work closely with our clients
to establish their individual needs and ever changing challenges and goals, connecting creative
talent with business, to create winning combinations. Acting as mediators, Pool Promotion consults
with music labels, A&Rs, managers, staging artists and establishing brands, offering strong networks
with Germany’s key industry decision makers and influencers.

Pool Promotion is a unique network of specialists. We use our initiative and proactively create
original strategies, develop creative ideas as well as taking care of all the day-to-day organisation
required for an effective campaign. Invention isn’t always about new ingredients, but new recipes.
And innovation tastes the best!

Pool Promotion – simply a matter of a few basic ingredients such as discipline, reliability,
honesty, experience and connections – paired last but nor least, with a huge amount of passion and love.
