TSI invites you to the Welcome Reception TSI Congress 2021 in the HEat restaurant and on the hotel terrace. In the cosy atmosphere, congress participants can have their first talks in a relaxed atmosphere over a glass of wine or beer and small snacks.
Even in times of Corona it is possible to exchange ideas and meet people, if you follow a few basic rules, which we will implement together with you.
The workshops and panels are on the first day of the congress are over and you would now like to network? In our "Virtual Meeting Lounge" on Spatial Chat you can exchange ideas with other virtual participants in the same way as the participants on site, have informal one-on-one conversations or simply "stand there" with a group. With moving camera images and spontaneously as in real life! Add to this a few nibbles from our "TSI Congress in a box" and off you go to Virtual Networking 4.0!
The workshops and panels on the first day of the congress will be followed by our popular Networking Reception. in the extended area of the conference foyer and hotel lobby, to which TSI cordially invites you. With a glass of wine or beer you can deepen the discussions of the day or make further contacts.
(All welcome! No prior registration required.)
Recovering from the impressions and information of the first day of the congress with good wine and cheese and high-level discussions? Sounds good? Welcome to an extended "Wine & Cheese Tasting" with a sommelier in the Alexanderplatz foyer from 7.30 pm. All participants are welcome without prior registration.
Der Mythos der Effizienz, Perfektion und guten Organisation prägte über Jahrzehnte hinweg den Blick auf Deutschland – sowohl von innen als auch von außen.
Der Blick aus dem Ausland ist oft hilfreich. Wo früher spöttische Bewunderung die deutsche Effizienz karikierte, schaut nunmehr der kritische Europäer gelegentlich fassungslos auf eine zunehmende Ineffizienz, die die deutsche Politik und Öffentlichkeit – oft scheinbar mehr befasst mit höheren Fragen der Weltgeschichte – stoisch hinzunehmen scheinen.
Wer hat den größten Einfluss – die Bürger, die Wirtschaft – oder der Staat?
Im Kamingespräch werden Dr. René Höltschi, seit über 30 Jahren Wirtschaftsjournalist der NZZ und kritischer aber wohlwollender Schweizer in Berlin, und Prof. Dr. Michael Weller von der EBS Universität dieser Frage in der Woche nach den Bundestagswahlen nachgehen. Für exzellente Weine und ausgewählten Käse ist wie immer gesorgt.
By invitation only.
In keeping with tradition, we will round off the first day of the congress with our cosy "chill-out and get-together" from 9.30 p.m., again this year in a further reduced form and in compliance with the applicable Corona rules. With the hotel's glass DomLounge overlooking the fascinating Berlin skyline, the setting is ideal for further networking, professional exchange or simply to enjoy the evening with a glass of wine or beer with customers and colleagues.
Limited number of participants on site, but no separate registration necessary.
Berlin Cathedral, the largest church in Berlin, is considered a key location of the protestant church in Germany. Every year many thousands of visitors come from far beyond the boundaries of the parish and the city, from other parts of Germany and from other countries. The Imperial Staircase, the Hohenzollern Crypt, the Cathedral Museum and, of course, the Sermon Nave with its impressive cupola are all worth a visit. Exclusive guided tour in German and in English.
Registration required, 20 participants maximum
Meeting point in front of the exit of the conference foyer on the Spree River side at 2:45 p.m.
The Humboldt Forum is a universal museum located on the Spree Island in the Historic Centre of Berlin in the Berlin Palace, about 5 minutes walking distance from the Radisson Blu Hotel. The building was constructed from 2012 to 2020 on the site of the historic Berlin Palace, and features its reconstructed facades on three exterior sides and in its courtyards. With display collections of the National Museums in Berlin, the Berlin City Museum and the Humboldt University in Berlin, it expands the Museum Island's offerings. Except for the Spree side, the exterior of the building is a replica of the Berlin Palace, considered the ‚major work of the North German Baroque,‘ while the interior is a completely modern structure by Italian architect Franco Stella. During an exclusive tour we will obtain insights into the history of the City Palace and the reconstruction as Humboldt Forum.
Registration required, 20 participants maximum.
