Berlin’s Sleeping Beauties
Episode 1: The City’s event community is ready to bounce back into action
Our roving Berliner Mark Felstead has moved out of his elegant AXICA venue settings where we last met him here, to find out how some other key Berlin business events and MICE players are coping and preparing to bounce back.
In his Berlin’s Sleeping Beauties podcast, he discovers a strong spirit in the destination and MICE community and some fresh ideas and plans for operating in the ‘new normal’ future.
Episode 2: Berlin’s Sleeping Beauties start to wake up
In his unique Prince Charming style, Mark asks what it means for Berlin to slowly be waking up to the New Normal. He also asks why re-boarding is now so relevant in this fast-moving situation, and also whether the managers are ready to deal with the challenges involved in our hospitality and MICE sector. And who is managing the managers?

Our roving Berlin Prince Charming, Mark Felstead moves out his AXICA comfort zone to deliver an exclusive interview for CMW with Ivor Cummins, a leading bio chemical engineer and globally respected thought leader on Covid-19. He is also author of Eat Rich Live Long.
In Mark Felstead’s latest episode of Berlin’s Sleeping Beauties (a joint project between the AXICA Event Centre and CMW), he talks again to Patrick Havenstein from Teamgeist about a very creative and sustainable teambuilding event – The Insect Hotel!
