It has been a long-standing tradition that PAY.ON hosts a special event to celebrate with clients at the Oktoberfest. Especially clients from abroad are attracted to the Oktoberfestwith its unique Bavarian style mix of Bavarian music, huge quaintly tents, leather pants, dirndls, beer and pretzels. Therefore the anticipation by everyone – clients and the PAY.ON team – was extremely high. And the expectations were fulfilled. Surrounded by blue skies the event started into the day following an exciting agenda.
After an original Bavarian breakfast our guests got a comprehensive insight into our road map 2013 by our CEO Markus Rinderer, our Vice President Business Relations Sebastian Gollwitzer and our Vice President Product & Integration Wolfgang Berner. Hot topics were new products and services for our PSP platform-as-a-service PaySourcing and for our international routing gateway PayPipe. An actual round-up about our new data center in London by our COO Christian Bamberger completed the presentation.
After a professional discussion about the hot topics in the industry our guests got ready for the Oktoberfest. Therefore a traditional outfit – dirndl for the ladies and leather pants for the gentlemen – was readily available in their hotel rooms. Perfectly equipped with Bavarian garment, everyone reached the final destination, the Schottenhamel tent, one of the most popular hot spots at the Oktoberfest and venue of the official opening ceremony performed by the mayor of Munich.
Welcomed by a first fresh beer called ‘Maß’, everyone got ready to ‘schunkeln’ arm in arm with their seatmates to the catchy Bavarian music played by one of the most famous bands of the region. Traditional Bavarian food, a second or maybe a third ‘Maß’, some exciting rollercoaster experience and a tour of the hot spots of the Wiesn made an unforgettable day at the Oktoberfest. Time flies when you are having fun, so the night began to spread over the biggest and most famous event in Germany. Rumor has it that the party went on well into the morning hours…
We are really looking forward to our client event at the Oktoberfest next year! The planning team has already started preparing.
