The 2017 Steinbeis Night: Time for the Network to Meet Up

Relaxed conversation and networking become important part of the relaunched evening event

Following the annual Steinbeis Day in the Steinbeis House, which focuses on the implementation of specialist knowledge, the evening event in the Liederhalle arts and convention center in Stuttgart took a more general approach to topics. Around 500 guests were invited to the Steinbeis Network evening to soak in the relaxed atmosphere, enjoy culinary delights with other Steinbeisers, and engage in informal conversation. The new evening arrangements went down even better than expected. The casual atmosphere was clearly enjoyed equally by guests of all ages.

Among the highlights of the evening were the bestowal of the Steinbeis Foundation Transfer Award – the Lohn Award (see following articles) and a graffiti artist with a difference: Professor Dr. Jurgen Scheible, a lecturer on the advertising and market communication degree at Stuttgart Media University, temporarily added completely new colors to the Beethoven Room at the Liederhalle center. He did this by using a “digital spray can” on his smartphone.

To match the conversation and cuisine, there was also musical accompaniment. The Silvio Dalla Brida quintet did its usual job of enticing dancers of all ages onto the dance floor. The aim is to repeat the format next year. The next invitation from the Steinbeis Network to the Steinbeis Day in Stuttgart is on Friday, September 28, 2018.
