Once per year, around 400 managers from all over the world meet in Barcelona for the Leadership Conference of thyssenkrupp Elevator. Barcelona was chosen as the location for the 2018 event – a home match for Spain connoisseur Andreas Sollik who once again stood out through excellent geographical and language knowledge. The Sollik Barcelona branch actively supported the event team of thyssenkrupp Elevator in organising the conference at the W-Hotel. The external evening event was planned by Sollik and successfully held with local partners.

Historic background to the event: Casa Llotja de Mar directly in the port

The guests enjoyed an unforgettable dinner with live music between the Gothic pillars and pointed arches of a former Spanish consulate. The evening event in the magnificent building, situated directly on Barcelona's harbour promenade, resembled a journey through the architectural and culinary world of Spain. In addition to tapas and desserts as flying service and buffet, there were typical Serrano stations and wine tasting areas from various regions.

Advantages through local know-how and good local contacts
During this event, Andreas Sollik worked closely with the event and communication department of thyssenkrupp Elevator. Together with their long-standing partners from Barcelona, the Spanish Sollik team organised a fascinating evening for the 400 conference participants.
