While the IAA premiered in the Bavarian capital Munich, around 200 invited guests gathered at the BMW World, to discuss one of the most pressing topics of our time: sustainability.
It has established itself as the party of the year and marks its 25th anniversary this year: the Burda DLD Nightcap, which is held annually as part of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Around 600 guests followed the invitation of DLD founder Steffi Czerny, DLD Chairman Yossi Vardi and Burda CEO Paul-Bernhard Kallen to the Steigenberger Belvédère Hotel. Jacob Burda, the son of publisher Hubert Burda, and Burda board members Martin Weiss and Andreas Rittstieg also welcomed the guests. The Burda DLD Nightcap brings together the most influential people and concludes the DLD Munich conference, which took place in Munich from 18 to 20 January. Among the international business leaders, politicians, investors, artists and media makers present this year were Carsten Spohr (Lufthansa), Marc Benioff (Salesforce), Dirk Hoke (Airbus), investor Alexander Samwer, Hildegard Wortmann (Audi), Regine Sixt (Sixt), Frank Appel (Deutsche Post), Martin Zielke (Commerzbank), Urs Rohner (Credit Suisse), investor Jeffrey Rosen, Herbert Diess (Volkswagen) and many more.
The London "Liquid Chefs" provided excellent cocktails and the band "Tegernseer Tanzlmusi" put the guests in the right Bavarian mood with their traditional brass band music.
