Petersberg Climate Dialogue



The ministers of the environment from 35 states met at AXICA for the fifth time on 18 and 19 May to attend the 'Petersberg Climate Dialogue'. This year saw preparation for the International Climate Protection Conference being held in Paris in December.

The climate experts sat around what was known as the 'blue table', specially installed in the glass-roofed Forum for the occasion. The conference was opened by Federal Minister for the Environment Barbara Hendricks and French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. The talks focussed on limiting global warming to a maximum of two degrees as well as the international cooperation on climate protection. The principal speakers at the Petersberg Climate Dialogue were Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and her French counterpart Francois Hollande.

As in the previous years, the event was very special for the AXICA staff. Apart from the tight security, the schedule that was planned down to the minutest detail and the perfect simultaneous interpreting service, looking after the international press also played a major role.

After the event had ended, AXICA project manager Nina Ostheeren received high praise from the organisers at the Federal Ministry for the Environment for the perfect organisation, the superb food and the level of commitment shown by all those concerned.

Event spring with 6 kind of best friends

EVENT Spring 16. April 2015

6 kind of best friends teamed up for the "Event Spring 2015" in the German capital. The Umspannwerk Alexanderplatz opened its doors, AMANO Hotels mixed cocktails, Ambion provided event technology, Party Rent set up furniture, Blumen Damerius did the decorations and the AXICA. CATERING took care of catering for the guests.

THE AXICA kitchen crew devoted itself to the current trend "Beak to tail". This is all about making use of the whole animal and plant so that every part of a product is served. The chicken was the theme and could be enjoyed in its entirety: for example as chicken stock with braised spicy giblets, wings marinated in three textures, breast as schnitzel with the (obligatory) asparagus, and a chicken "ketwurst" 

(East German variation of the hot dog).

250 guests from the Berlin event scene attended - to celebrate the spring in all its culinary, decorative and festive aspects. And so the guests experienced the creations of their friends taking part first hand - true to the AXICA Motto: Expect the unexpected.

Automotive Event

A different kind of challenge for the AXICA: at the entrance area of the building should be issued a limousine. With great sensitivity the driver placed the Phaeton in position. The 200 Chinese guests who attended the conference and the dinner invited by the car manufacturer were not only impressed by the car, even on the architecture of the AXICA.

Conference - Momentum for Europe

Kopie EIB 088 2


Organiser: European Investment Bank


Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and President of the EU Commission Jean-Claude Juncker were welcomed by the President of the European Investment Bank (EIB), Werner Hoyer, at AXICA on 2 March 2015 to the conference "Momentum for Europe". Entitled "Impulses for Europe – Innovation and Competitiveness“, the two-day EIB event was devoted to the challenges associated with funding and promoting innovation in Europe.

High-profile events such as these are high points for AXICA and entail particularly intensive preparation: schedules timed to the second, a sophisticated security concept as well as perfect coordination of catering and service.

Managing director Marc Mundstock was delighted by the positive feedback from the organiser.

"All of your staff worked alongside ours as if they were our own colleagues; it was professional, absolutely result-orientated and quite simply delightful. Nina Ostheeren manages things with unbelievable ease, as a matter of course, with cheerfulness and a watchful eye for details! A remarkable achievement for Nina, you and your team. Our cooperation will long be remembered by us and by me, a willingness to work together that extended right up to the persons responsible at our office.

The event was a huge success - also in the eyes of our guests. That is the yardstick!

Thank you all and warm regards"
