C&C Contact & Creation GmbH – 40 years of quality with passion









Our focus is on selected book projects

The company is primarily dedicated to culinary book projects. This idea owes its success to the fact that customers from all over the world have given owner and managing director Marianne Salentin-Träger a taste for culinary delights. Her many years of expertise in the travel industry thus flow seamlessly into extraordinary and multi-award-winning book projects.

The company was founded by Gunther Träger in 1984. As one of the leading agencies for press and public relations in the industry, C&C Contact & Creation GmbH served until his death in 2018, national and international companies and institutions in German-speaking countries. C&C received numerous prizes and awards for its successful PR.
