In Dublin last week, CEOs from some 400 retailers, manufacturers and other stakeholders from 50 countries gathered at the World Consumer Goods Forum Global Summit to shape the future together. The companies they represent combine sales of €4.6 trillion and directly employ nearly 10 million people (source: Consumer Goods Forum).
As the sole owner of a confectionery brand that is popular around the globe, Prof. Dr. Hermann Bühlbecker did not miss the opportunity to network. He himself hosted an International Evening for the 18th time to welcome more than 120 business leaders from all over the world, including retailers, manufacturers and service providers, and to exchange ideas with them on impulses from trade, industry and politics. Also on hand was the German Ambassador to Ireland, Cord Meier-Klodt.
In the Gravity Bar of the Guinness Storehouse, he also welcomed well-known personalities such as Chris De Burgh to this Irish evening, who appeared with his daughter Rosanna Davison and provided musical accompaniment to the evening.
The next edition of the event will take place in Kyoto, Japan, in 2023.
