Frenetic reporter in Dresden

In the context of the summer campaign "Germany - at the heart of future events", the German Convention Bureau's team of raving reporters visited us and went with us live on a discovery tour through Dresden.

Destinations in Motion Tour

From 1 June to 30 September 2021, the GCB and its partners will combine face-to-face encounters and virtual networking at the meetings and conventions venue Germany with a hybrid programme. The campaign is aimed at event planners from all over the world and includes the four modules "Live Experience", "Virtual Market Place", "Innovation" and "Education". All offers are free of charge! 

One component of the campaign is the so-called  "Destination in Motion Tour" through major German congress cities. The Motion Tour was themed "Germany Open for Business Innovation and Digitalisation".

And so on Tuesday, 15.06.2021, we welcomed the roving reporter Avid Vahedi to Dresden and explored the multifaceted congress location Dresden together with him. For Avid and the social media observers, we put together a great programme with a wide variety of MICE stops - true to the motto: Dresden - Meetings.Moments.Memories!

Awid and the GCB's team got to know an interesting mix of historical and modern event options, as well as innovative and sustainable concepts from our industry.
