Ernst & Young AG works outing
In 2008 Ernst & Young AG commissioned us for the third time to plan, organise and conduct the joint works outing for their branches in Leipzig, Dresden and Erfurt in the autumn.
The content and aim of the event was to reinforce personal bonds between the teams of the three branches and to encourage the exchange of ideas and experience between the employees in a pleasant atmosphere.
The approximately 160 employees travelled on shuttle buses to the banks of the River Elbe in Dresden, where we had prepared a brunch for everyone. Then the team travelled downstream to Meissen on a chartered boat. There we conducted dragon boat races in which the various branches competed against one another in mixed teams. After arriving at Parkhotel Radebeul the staff members enjoyed "A Caribbean Night" together.
We transformed the hotel ball room into a romantic beach bar and a band played well-known Latino hits. Food from the Caribbean gala buffet and the elegant cocktail bar rounded off the evening. The emotional climax of the party was the evaluation of the performances in the dragon boat races and the victory ceremony.
We were entrusted with the following tasks, in particular:
- Planning the event;
- Booking and coordinating all components, suppliers and sub-contractors;
- Selecting the restaurants and the hotel;
- Travel and guest management;
- Technical and organisational management of the event;
