10 Years Of UNITEAM MARINE Shipping in Hamburg
On 18 June UNITEAM MARINE Shipping celebrated its tenth anniversary with 140 partners and colleagues.
The event took place at Zollenspieker Fährhaus, a former ferry station first mentioned in the year 1252. The Fährhaus is now a restaurant with guest rooms, located in the southernmost part of Hamburg on the river Elbe.
The festivities began at 6 pm on the terrace, with sparkling wine and good weather - for which we were grateful given the uncertain forecast for that week.
The anniversary celebrations were attended, not only by guests from Germany, but also from Cyprus, the UK, Singapore and Shanghai.
After all the guests had moved inside to the beautifully decorated ballroom, Mr. Merkel, Managing Director of UNITEAM MARINE Shipping since its inception, gave a speech reflecting on the history of the company in Hamburg, its various offices and special moments in its history, and then thanked the clients, partners and staff for their valuable collaboration over the last 10 years.
The highlights of the event were, not only the splendid four-course dinner, but also the performance given by Jörg Hammerschmidt, impersonator and trained opera singer, who has entertained the guests as Udo Lindenberg, Julio Iglesias, Luciano Pavarotti, Boris Becker and many other celebrities. He was accompanied on the piano by Jürgen Christ, a university lecturer in classical music and composer.
After dinner, more entertainment was provided outdoors on the terrace:
Reinhold Stier, a silhouette artist, created portraits of the delighted guests.
A professional sommelier, Mr. Erik Wachsmuth held a wine-tasting competition and talked about five wines from five different continents.
It was a most enjoyable and pleasant evening.
