Our partners.

After many years of successful collaboration, Goldbach Group AG and Picstars 2021 are teaming up even more closely. Goldbach has been our exclusive marketer for Switzerland since January 2021. Thanks to this close cooperation, we will be able to develop holistic cross-media concepts for you even more efficiently in the future. To ensure diverse touchpoints along the entire customer journey, we jointly cover print, digital out of home (DOOH) and social media, among others.

As an official TikTok partner in Switzerland, we have been very close since 2019. The proximity to our strong partner and our extensive experience from various, jointly successfully implemented campaigns, makes it possible for us to support you in a particularly efficient and targeted manner.
