The premises are decorated in company colors. Guests – customers, friends, companions – are enjoying the stage program: Three scientists compete for the audiences’ approval in a future slam. A street musician plays his guitar. A graphic artist puts the event into illustrations on a huge wall. Guests can, immersed in virtual and augmented reality, walk through a MEISSNER EXPO museum or visit a trade show booth in 3D. At the multi touch table, a lottery turns winners into saviors of the rainforest. There are inspiring lectures, and there is fine food – deliciously prepared by the prizewinning refugee women initiative “Chick Peace”. After 40 years, Bruno Meissner has a lot to tell: his inspiring stories about the ups and downs in the trade show business leave the guests optimistic. Here’s to the future!
