We wish you no merry Crystmeth!

Between classes, on the schoolyard, during breaks - as a gift to get started or for pocket money - it's so easy for our children to get synthetic drugs like Crystal Meth. The problem has long since arrived in our schoolyards and not only higher classes are affected: More and more often it affects younger children.



Change puts retail in the spotlight at Supermarkt Stars 2019

Food and retail - for many this sounds more like everyday life than glamour. So how do you give the people behind the sale of food and drink products their big moment? This was the question that the team of Change Communication asked themselves when Lebensmittel Zeitung direkt commissioned the agency to organize the "Supermarkt Stars 2019" event. The best and most successful retailers were to be duly honored at the annual conference in the Gesellschaftshaus of the Frankfurt Palmengarten on 4th and 5th of June 2019.

In order for the award ceremony to go according to plan, a logistical masterstroke by the event specialists from Change Communication was necessary: As the venue was a sought-after and well-booked location, delivery for the numerous sponsor stands could only take place at short notice on the morning of the award ceremony scheduled for the evening.

With 33 partners, 500 participants from industry and retail as well as ten prize winners in four categories it was important to keep the overview. The construction phase for almost three dozen stands was tightly timed and required a great deal of organizational skill. However, the event professionals were only too happy to take up this challenge and solved it with flying colors.

But the coordination of the sponsors' exhibition and the construction of the hall was not the only thing Change Communication realized during the two-day "Supermarkt Stars 2019". The agency's Virtual Design team created the candidate films and presentations, prepared the entire staging for the award ceremony and directed the award ceremony and the annual conference with 250 participants.

"Once again, Change is providing the 'Supermarkt Stars' with excellent support [...]," said LZ Medien Head of Seminars and Events Johanna Kuhn, full of praise. "This time, the challenge was even greater: On the one hand, there was less time to set up the entire setup, on the other hand, a convincing presentation is important to us, where our customers feel rewarded and the award ceremony remains dramaturgically exciting. Change really mastered it all perfectly".

So the attendees and the prize winners were able to enjoy the delicacies of the booths in the best summer weather during the award ceremony on June 4, followed by an exuberant party - and win ideas for the next generation of supermarkets at the annual conference the following morning in the wonderful ambience of the Gesellschaftshaus.

Change virtually stages a non-available vehicle of choice as if by magic!

What do you do if the vehicle you want to present is not available for the Corporate Convention of Europe’s largest automotive distributor?

Well, that’s precisely the challenge the teams of Change Communication and its sister company, KFP Five Star Conference Service, faced during the run-up to this year’s Porsche Holding’s Konzerntag titled “Future.Mobility.Solutions”. The reason being that the Geneva Motor Show – taking place simultaneously – made a real presentation of the new VW I.D. Buzz prototype impossible.

But it had to be exactly this innovative electric vehicle – the successor to the legendary Volkswagen “Bulli”. So, alternatives to a real presentation had to be found. Especially, because Change’s credo “Change your perspective and innovate” is not without reason. Consequently, Change’s professional minds for communication together with KFP’s event specialists thought up a unique solution: “Why don’t we have the bus drive into the hall virtually?”


To realize this creative idea, KFP and Change deployed state-of-the-art technology. This included, for example, a 15 × 5 meter LED wall, which showed real-time images combined with pre-produced virtual content during the live artistic performance. Reality and simulation merged when the animated I.D. Buzz interacted with the Dundu puppets operated by professional puppeteers, to create a real “wow” effect in the audience.


Executives attending the Konzerntag expressed their enthusiasm likewise:
“Throughout the preparatory phase we experienced an atmosphere of genuine partnership and, at the end of the day, we succeeded to accomplish a great event”, said Leo Fellinger, Chief Creative Officer of the Corporation, praising the good cooperation with Change and KFP. “Our executives were as enthusiastic as our Management Board and members of the Supervisory Board.”

The perfect day at the Salzburg Exhibition and Congress Center was additionally enhanced by numerous other full-service solutions provided by the KFP Group: Content development, production and beautification of more than twenty presentations, a live artistic performance in combination with a virtual vehicle, a gala dinner for the 1,100 executives as well as a journey through Porsche Holding’s business fields – all were in good hands with the communication and event experts in charge.

Mercedes-Benz BUSiness Days

Frankfurt, November 14, 2017. Change Communication stages relaunch of the Mercedes-Benz Omnibus Days in cooperation with the set specialist Artlife.

On November 11 and 12, Mercedes-Benz celebrated its premiere of the new edition of the traditional Omnibus Days (MOT) at the bus delivery center in Mannheim, attracting numerous guests from all over Europe. In the past few years the event has become a popular meeting point for people from the industry, who also enjoy visiting the event with their families.

After completing the refurnishing of the public areas on the factory premises in 2016, Mercedes-Benz also wanted to revive the event’s format and integrate the formerly separately held symposium for representatives from the public transportation sector in the best possible way. “More brand, more product, more services”, is what our objective was, says Angela Frank, Manager Integration Management, Fairs, Events, Marketing Planning at Daimler Buses. "The setup had to work for a dual purpose, that is, for two very different target groups and event formats."

"The challenge was posed by the heterogeneity of the target groups and the complexity of the communication objectives. We wanted to stage the Mercedes-Benz products and services in such a way that the experience would be just as exciting for local bus entrepreneurs with their families as for representatives from international expert associations. To achieve this, we created a wide scope of opportunities to approach and experience the various focal points of our communication strategy. The differentiated experience addresses cognitive and emotional dimensions, providing different touchpoints for identification," says Almuth Siemann, Managing Director of Change Communication GmbH.

This in mind, the Frankfurt-based creative forge transformed the traditional MOT into a new format, the Mercedes-Benz Business Days. With its motto Experience today – Discover tomorrow, visitors were invited to experience an emotional customer journey in a venue covering 2,600 m2. The event featured the Citaro hybrid, Tourismo, Future Bus with City Pilot and the Sprinter City 45, flanked by booths offering various specialty services for these vehicles. For the first time, too, OMNIPlus On presented itself as the new brand for all digital service activities.

The physical environment for this new experience format was built by Artlife (Hofheim), who integrated the Business Days into the Mercedes-Benz plant at Mannheim. Furthermore, with the new Mercedes-Benz Customer FORUM, we also created a new format for international customers from the public transport sector, which was held on the day prior to the event.

The management of Daimler Buses was fully satisfied with the outcome of the event. "We wanted to have a future-oriented, content-based creative concept. It was important to us to offer all visitors a comprehensive and emotional omnibus experience in an authentic Mercedes-Benz brand world without the bustle of a trade fair. The new format achieved this quite effectively. The partnership with Change Communication and Artlife contributed significantly in achieving our goals", says Harry Gottschalk, Head of Marketing Communication at Daimler Buses.

A Dance of Giants

Mercedes and Change Communication stage spectacular launch for new travel coach Tourismo


FRANKFURT, July 17, 2017. On behalf of Mercedes-Benz, Frankfurt-based agency, Change Communication, staged a double world premiere: from June 19-23, 2017 international press representatives and around 2,500 selected guests from 29 countries came to the EXPO in Brussels to attend the international launch of the new TOURISMO, as well as the first dynamic indoor bus-presentation in the world.

After nearly 20 years, Daimler Buses re-launched its bestselling Mercedes-Benz high-decker touring coach TOURISMO. The introduction of the next generation of the most successful European coach attracted great attention in the bus industry. Accordingly, interest in the market and expectations towards the premiere event were high. "We wanted to offer our guests a truly memorable WOW-experience and exceed the expectations tied to the brand “Mercedes-Benz” and this very special product. Thus, our objective was to create a completely new dimension in product staging within an authentic brand environment", says Almuth Siemann, Managing Director of Change Communication GmbH.

Together with KFP Five Star Conference Service – specialist in MICE services – and epicto GmbH, Change created, designed and implemented an unprecedented unique product presentation: Three buses showed a dynamic live performance in front of the audiences in the venerable Hall 5 of Brussels' EXPO area, merging virtuality and reality into an almost life-like live image. The audience witnessed the vehicles "live" in their "natural" environments, i.e. in the city, through a scenic countryside and on a virtual highway.

The concept was realized using high-end technology: a 40 x 8 m mobile LED wall, combined with a floor projection of 1,200 sqm and 28 high-performance projectors, continued to create realistic traffic situations in which the 12-14 meter long vehicles – weighing up to 24 tons – demonstrated their capabilities. This "Dance of the Giants" required maximum concentration and accurate maneuvers by the three drivers, who executed the choreography precisely to the centimeter – placing the buses perfectly into the digital projections.

"Change has presented a courageous and innovative creative concept that not only fits to the Mercedes-Benz brand as well as presents the topic of touring coaches, but also reflects the highest demands addressed towards the team and technology. The realization of such projects requires mutual trust and perfectly implemented processes", says Harry Gottschalk, Head of Marketing Communications Daimler Buses.

"The TOURISMO world premiere was a huge success. Such an excellent cooperation only works if one can rely on one another", adds Angela Frank, Project Manager for the event and responsible for Integration Management, Trade Fairs, Events and Marketing Planning at Daimler Buses.
