General meeting on 27 June 2015 at Mövenpick Hotel, Munster

While the annual general meeting of the TGB took place under quite ordinary circumstances, DTG members had a special reason to come together for this year’s meeting: 25 years ago, in October 1990, was the time of their inaugural meeting.

This was respected during the meeting’s official part led by the executive chairman Reinhold Scheermann. After the Management Board had reported on the business history of both organizations in 2014 and answered all members’ questions, each still active DTG founding member was honoured with a silver badge while all present members received a jubilee backpack.

Traditionally, in the evening all members, their families, friends, employees, the supervisory and the executive boards of the DTG and TGB came together for inspiring dinner conversation. After enjoying their meals and a show of the ventriloquist Merlin & Co. with his puppet “Willi Kowalski” the most talented among the participants hit the dance floor to live music of the “Ingrid Schwarz Band” while others preferred to continue their talks at the counter until the wee hours.

We would like to pass our sincere thanks to our former colleague Wilfried Neynes for contributing all photos for the gallery, to the attentive Mövenpick team around Mrs Campe, to the “Ingrid Schwarz Band”, to Merlin & Co. and to all our members and their families. We look forward to seeing you again in best shape at next year’s meeting in Hannover.
