Flowy at the exhibition entrance

The sun shines over CBB!

What an exciting first trade fair day! After there was a little chaos during setup yesterday evening, we were very curious this morning to see what the halls would look like. We were on site at 8 a.m. after a short breakfast, and–as always in China–everything was ready on time 🙂 I was then in the main entrance on site punctually...

CBB – Day 2

This morning was entirely devoted to the drinktec press conference. I already had arranged to meet my Chinese colleagues at 8:30 a.m. for a “dry run”. Unfortunately, I did not find the room at first. The Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre (SNIEC) is rather narrow and winding. The good thing was that when I arrived, the technical equipment had already...

Dain on Tour – The ultimative Munich visit, Part 3

As you realized last week, it´s not so easy to find your way in Munich for the first time. This also applies for the way to the Hotel: Lets just say, I got a little bit lost… so the ETA of 6min turned into 20min (we had the map the wrong way round) thankfully the public are willing to help...

Dain on Tour – The ultimative Munich visit, Part 2

And so it begins: I flew out of JHB on the 1st of June, was a typical Autumn day for us, sun shining, cold breeze in the air, but still warm. This was my first time flying to Doha using Qatar Airways… The flight is just under 8hours, so I knew I would be able to rest…I was greeted by...

In Venezuela Ana Chenche and her team are the contacts for all questions when it comes to drinktec 2017 and the beverages and liquid food industry. We...
