Moving the Future



Wednesday, 9 October 2019

18:00   – 23:00

Get-togehter  Networking Reception - Germania Ruderclub

Start the congress off networking with industry colleagues from around the world in a relaxed atmosphere.

More than one year ago, the very exclusive and indeed oldest traditional rowing club was elaborately renewed and now fits even better in the elegant surroundings of the Alster. The interior also shines in new splendor: large window fronts, a bright floor and white walls provide plenty of light - even in October, when the sun goes down earlier. A fantastic view is offered showing the impressive silhouette of Hamburg. In addition to the boat launch there is also a spacious roof terrace, where you can enjoy the last warm rays of autumn. The catering is offered from the experienced hands of the VLET kitchen and conjures excellent food with the names "Michel", "Speicherstadt" and "Alster" - more Hamburg is almost impossible.

We will approach this exclusive spot by a small approx. 60 minutes Alster boat cruise starting directly opposite of the Le Méridien. The pier of the rowing club is just a 2-minute walk from the rowing club. Enjoy a casual and relaxing ‘Welcome to Hamburg’ evening.

One of the company visits still is a secret that will be revealed suprisingly.


Exclusive insights into the container port: In the midst of towering cranes, endlessly long container warehouses and huge cargo ships, you experience the Port of Hamburg from a completely new perspective: the harbor cruise "Eye to Eye with the Giants" takes you directly to the container port of Hamburg - exclusively to where others are only at the fence.

Container giants close enough to touch: Ahead lies the container port Hamburg. Visitors usually do not come in here - we do! Thanks to the special permit of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), our bus with accompanying vehicle and flashing warning lights rolls directly onto the terminals.

Different terminals are available for our harbor tour:

  • The Burchardkai is the largest container handling facility in the Port of Hamburg   and handles almost every third container in the Port of Hamburg. 30 container   bridges work on the thousands of ships that moor here annually.
  • The Container Terminal Altenwerder is an impressive example of fully automated   logistics. Huge unloading and loading stations ensure a smooth handling here. At close range we see the computer-controlled driverless transport platforms   and the latest generation of container gantry cranes.
  • The Oswaldkai is a typical multipurpose terminal for fruit and car wrapping. And   Hansaport is Germany's largest seaport terminal for iron ore and coal.

Qualified guides explain all technical and logistical processes during the tour and are of course available for questions. The choice of terminals is spontaneous depending on the daily business and availability.

Lunch at the Professional Tour will certainly be offered.

Get-together Networking Reception - Heritage Bar - Le Méridien

After a day full of big impression across the value chain of export   packaging time for discussion and reflection is needed. Certainly after that   long day of traveling around people are very hungry. The easiest way to solve   both problems – talk and food – is in a relaxed atmosphere without the need to travel further. Therefore, the brand new Heritage-Bar at the roof top of the 2019 Congress Hotel offers a variety of excellent food and drinks to be taken while walking around and talking with other participants. A smooth closure of an exhaustive day with a unique view of the Aussenalster.

Hardly   anything makes (wo)men's heart beat faster than shopping. What could be   better than a guided shopping tour? Best away from the large anonymous   shopping centers, in the well-known scene district of St. Pauli. What many do   not know: St. Pauli is much more than just a red light district and party   mile, it is above all a creative and colorful district, which is especially alive with its many small shops. Factories, unique and handmade by young Hamburg labels can be found here and incidentally you will also learn from the guide interesting facts about the infamous district. With entertaining stories, exciting owner-managed shops and small meals in between, shopping   becomes an experience. And best of all: at the end of the tour, you will receive vouchers that you can redeem in stores. The perfect end to a   delicious lunch at Feinkost Schnalke.

Part of the exhibit is Deck 2, a fancy location that takes its guests back in time with its architecture and pieces from the museum’s collection. In a time when the city's stores were still filled with valuable goods such as spices and   coffee. For the FEFPEB Congress 2019 HPE managed the doors to be opened after   the regular museum opening times. The Kaispeicher B is a great location emitting a lot of maritime flair. In an atmosphere that will take you back to   old days valuable delicacies will be served at the Gala-Dinner by the passionate kitchen chefs creating a first-class menu, with culinary   surprises.
