Joy, laughter and celebration - the TÜV NORD FESTival
A few impressions of the birthday party...
The great TÜV NORD FESTival.
In the middle of the Port of Hamburg, TÜV NORD presented itself on thursday evening as a company with great tradition and a clear, innovative course towards the future. Among the congratulators were Hamburg's Senator for Economic Affairs Michael Westhagemann and HHLA chief Angela Titzrath. A total of 475 guests attended the birthday party, including customers and many TÜV NORD employees from around the world. German well-known Science journalist Stefan Gödde (Galileo, Pro7) hosted the FESTival in an entertaining way and guided through the evening. Det Müller, TV car expert and brand ambassador of TÜV NORD Mobility, also presented his favourite car and caused a laugh or two.
