Good networking is indispensable for a successful media company. In our daily work we rely on reputable sources in order to guarantee a high standard of information. In the many years of successful cooperation, we have been able to develop a far-reaching circle of trust that enables us to successfully cooperate with our partners in the security community.

Especially in the editorial area, we can offer a profound network. Our specialist publication cpm forum covers a wide range of content and thus a corresponding reach. With the support of qualified experts from industry, politics and the armed forces, topics are presented in an informative and visually appealing way. Our reputable specialist publications are an integral part of the security policy network for obtaining verified information.

Our managing director Tobias Ehlke is also engaged as a board member of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Wehrtechnik e.V. (German Society for Defense Technology). He is also managing director of the CALS Forum Deutschland e.V. CFD. As a former officer in the armed forces, he still maintains contacts at all levels of the Bundeswehr.



The company cpm attaches great importance to a trusting cooperation with its customers and partners. In order to guarantee this, legal and grant requirements have top priority in our work. Our value-oriented actions enable us to cooperate with partners from the Bundeswehr, government agencies and industry in a spirit of trust. In regular briefings, our employees are informed about compliance guidelines in order to continue to maintain a sustainable and transparent relationship with our partners. As an event and information service provider, we can thus guarantee our neutrality.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.



Founded in 1989, the company has been a reliable partner to industry and to government agencies for decades.

From the very beginning, the focus has lain on the organisation of competent specialist events and the relocation of the renowned specialist magazine cpm forum. The content orientation of the cpm forum has always been independent and quickly gained reputation. In the challenging environment of the security policy and defence technology trade press, the magazine was able to assert itself over the long term. The armed forces repeatedly ask us to provide journalistic support for complex topics. We often accompany our specialist conferences with the interpretation of the content of our publications or are media partners at international trade fairs, such as the Innovation and Leadership in Aerospace (ILA) in Berlin.

Since the foundation of cpm GmbH, numerous events with different contents have been held. However, with the user forum Logistics - Log.Net - we created one of THE symposia in the field of joint armed forces logistics. Above all, the close cooperation with the logisticians of the German Armed Forces in terms of content guarantees a competent processing of the complex topics.

Further events often follow in terms of content linked to the current challenges of the time. Currently, we have dealt with the topics of communication in the security and defence industry, training in the armed forces, medical services, and others in attractive specialist conferences.

In the sense of a service-oriented media house, a well-founded consulting culture has also developed in the meantime with regard to communication in the security policy community. To us it’s a pleasure to advise our clients on increasing visibility in the Bundeswehr.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our partners for their constant cooperation and look forward to a successful future together.
