The World Money Fair 2018 has come to past, but the impressions and emotions associated with it remain strong in us. We would like to share with you our memories and thoughts that we have gathered in the form of a short photo report.
As each year, the World Money Fair 2018 took place on the first weekend of February at the Estrel Hotel in Berlin. However, our sales team was on the spot from Monday, because business meetings at the fair began a few days earlier. From day to day, more and more guests appeared in the hotel, including the ones from Kurowski Group, which at a peak moment counted up to 20 operationally involved people.
Throughout all the days of the fair our booth was full of guests and our brave representatives did everything to ensure that visitors were given comprehensive information about our products and services. We tried to present both our “traditional” offer of numismatic packaging and coin refining, as well as our latest achievement in the field of digital solutions – QVision augmented reality app for smartphones and tablets.
However, during this year’s fair, apart from our exhibition booth and numerous trade meetings, we had much more to offer to the collectors of numismatics. On Friday, February 2, during the annual Media Forum, at which the largest companies in the numismatic industry present themselves and their product plans, we were given the opportunity to also show ourselves.
It was a great honor for us to have the chance to appear in such a remarkable group of mints and banks. Our presentation was dominated by the augmented reality that we promoted the most during this year’s WMF. However, we tried to put a strong emphasis in the context of this technology on the need to seek new solutions in the field of numismatics, thanks to which the passion for collecting will have the chance to awaken among new generations.
We were all the more proud to tell about the Kurowski Group that our presentation was the last, after which we invited all guests to a banquet called “The Magic Friday”. During the reception a magical show took place, led by an illusionist invited by us especially for the occasion – Mr. Andrzej Nowak aka “Josyn”. The performance met with a warm and spontaneous reception, after which the Illusionist Josyn walked around the audience making tricks for the guests.
On Saturday, the event was visited by employees from our company, who apart from going around the World Money Fair, also went on a sightseeing tour in Berlin. Members of Kurowski Group were often accompanied by family and friends. Despite the crowd of thousands of visitors, it was easy to recognize us 😉
Although our entire fair’s team was busy every day of the event from the early morning till late hours, we spent the evenings trying to be together, visiting the nearby atmospheric restaurants, integrating ourselves by a good German lager.
Taking this opportunity, we would like to thank everyone who visited our booth, whom we saw during trade meetings or with whom we had the opportunity to cooperate by the WMF, whether it is from the Organizers of the fair, Estrel hotel or else. We will certainly have the opportunity to see each other during the next editions, but we cannot wait for that day. See you then!
