What a week it's been! The past few days have been filled with celebrations, insights and shared moments that exemplify our commitment to unity, passion and innovation.
Monday, June 26: 25 Years Ceremony
The week started with a bang as we celebrated our 25th anniversary. With more than 430 esteemed guests in attendance, it was an event to remember. Our gathering was the perfect blend of camaraderie and celebration, filled with memorable performances and great conversation. Some of the highlights of the night were the magical stage shows and LED drummers that brought an undeniable energy to the event.
Perhaps the most memorable moment was the laser sword fight between our board members Thomas Renner and Wilhelm Kaenders. Their playful duel was not only a spectacle, but a testament to the innovative spirit we embody as a company.
