What am I doing at the moment?

True to the motto “Don’t waste a crisis”, my team and I are currently pushing many new projects. Corona limits the economic development opportunities of numerous companies, e.g. in the field of trade fairs, events, gastronomy, culture, travel & education and thus also extremely restricts us ourselves. At the same time, we decided to use the virus as an accelerator for innovations and to implement the many ideas that have been slumbering in the drawer for years or are just emerging.

A challenging time – that will hopefully soon return to the cherished, old normality.
