Background

The annual summer festival should be organized. 350 employees at the Frankfurt site have done a great deal, and should have a special employee summer festival. In addition, it was necessary to integrate new employees into the existing team and make people familiar with each other.

Tasks

– concept development – location selection
– event & framework program planning
– arrival logistics, transfers & shuttleservice
– selection & decoration of the evening event

Goals

The year 2010 was exhausting, the employees have done a lot – each individual employee should receive a special commendation through the summer festival and enjoy the whole day. It should be a location, which invites to relax and relax, but at the same time offers space for an active one , Experienced event day – with sporting activities that could be experienced in the team, the fun and the people together. There should be much laughter and motivate the mostly male participants to „slip out of their skin“. An evening event with a lot of room for good conversations below the management and the staff was just as requested as „just switch off“.

Concept and solutions

„Space for good talks“ offers itself only the sea … since this is not within a few kilometers around Frankfurt, we have chosen a large lake for this event – SPACE and SPACE for free thoughts, shutting off from everyday life and the employees As well as the management simply times from another side experience: of the human. Our concept was based on an active beach day with evening beach party, organized directly at the water. Familiarization and joint activity should be achieved through the joint construction of 35 kite boats, which the participants had to acquire in advance the necessary material. Mediterranean decoration of the evening event should invite to intensive conversations – in the deck chair or in the hammock.

Execution

The Langener Waldsee, Hesse’s larger bathing lake, was the venue for this great event, providing space for the enormous amount of material needed for the 35 dragon boats to be built and the area for the preparations and actions. Two large rooms provided space for lounge areas, retreats for good conversations – and a large mantel-like open space should be a central point of contact for all employees to get to know new employees. The evening event with DJ and enormous mood was supplemented by a sunset (which the customer had booked), which is still the same today.

What we are proud of

There were about 350 participants present – there were 350 men who came from IT. In the morning at 11am. It was a real challenge to move these people to a short laugh as we started the moderation. AFTER the actions, around 3 pm, these people were partially in the arms, felt whether the shared experiences – perhaps also because one was not capsized. Imagine a group of people who did not say a word at the beginning of the event – and did not want to leave the location. Nobody sat alone, everyone was integrated, had fun, laughed and enjoyed a day that was simply something special.
