Berlin’s Awakening Beauties, Episode 2 with Peter Antoni

This week our host Mark Felstead’s special guest is one of the true Godfathers of Berlin’s Event industry – Peter Antoni.

Peter has been one of the major players in the events business in Berlin since the late 1980s and has been involved in many great projects in the city and beyond. He was one of the first to bring cruise ship tours to the city and was a driver behind bringing in the MTV Awards.

He also spent many years as the head of Conference and Touring and acted as a respected mentor to many of today’s personalities in the city’s events landscape.

In this episode Peter offers his prognosis for the future of events in the city and laments the fact that many of those working in the ‘backroom’ have been further thrown into the shadows of our industry during lockdown.

He also gives a take on the movement in Berlin and Germany taking to the streets to protest a lack of funding – Code Red Alert!

Other big news under discussion is Berlin finally getting its long awaited new airport BER. We look at the first impressions as we wave a fond farewell to TEGEL.

Peter also explains how, following 18 months of sabbatical, he now helps to steer the metamorphosis for the agency Time Change to a successful full-service communications agency, complete with tech tools for registration, virtual events and hybrid meetings.

Conference & Meetings World is published for the international conference and meetings industry. It tackles the issues facing organisers of international events. The editorial is independent, fresh and news driven, with a global reach.
