An international conference in Bratislava: the Grand Hotel River Park and Elesko Wine Park
The annual conference of the Austrian headquarters of one of the world’s leading braking technology companies takes its events to a different European city every year. This year the company celebrated its 50th anniversary and decided to land the event in Europe’s ‘little big city’ on the Danube river.
The event took place at several locations in and near Bratislava, starting with a city tour upon arrival of all guests. An old-timer bus granted the conference visitors a ride through the old-town district, including a stop at the iconic Bratislava Castle with an incredible view of the city and its surroundings. After the tour guests could enjoy a culinary experience, carefully curated by celebrity Executive Chef Jaroslav Židek. The outdoor dinner at the plaza of the riverbank hotel was accompanied by entertaining live music performances of a vintage jazz band.
The Maria Theresia Ballroom at the Grand River Park hotel was the conference venue the following day, where the newest trends and technologies in the rail and commercial vehicle industry were presented. The event continued at the ELESKO Wine Park & Restaurant; a modern venue located in the nearby wine region. After a wine tasting upon arrival, guests enjoyed their gala dinner with a spectacular program with a combination of traditional local music performances and a modern party band taking care of the atmosphere during the second part of the evening. During an award ceremony led by the Austrian event host Julia Furdea, a group of engineers was recognized for excellence in their field. A bus shuttle took our guests back to the hotel at midnight, where a fabulous female DJ created the finishing touch of the event behind a white classy DJ booth. The honored speakers received a bottle of internationally awarded honey wine as a conference souvenir, during the day of departure back home.
