When summerfest meets company merger, a special venue is required, where you cannot only let off steam in athletically challenging team-building competitions but also relax with a tasty glass of wine on the patio and bask in the sun.
The Laubenheimer Höhe area of Mainz was the perfect place and the weather was fantastic. Following a tasty buffet with Italian delicacies and a motivational speech on the occasion of the merger, about 300 employees felt invigorated and ready to tackle the upcoming Farmyard Olympics – competing for fame, honor and, of course, the coveted trophy!
Eager to win and with plenty of fun, two dozen teams fought their way through four different challenges: Jenga XXL, biathlon, team trivia, and pétanque. Following a suspenseful counting, the winners were duly honored and looking forward – like everyone else – to a casual barbecue and refreshing cocktails on the patio at sunset.
A further highlight was a performance by comedian and radio host Johannes Scherer, followed by a DJ who had no problems luring guests onto the dance floor. It was thus hard to find an end to this wonderful and eventful day – but it is a good sign for a successful event when the client does not want it to end!
