To celebrate the 140th anniversary of C.A.PICARD in November, and due to the proximity of this anniversary to the company's Christmas celebrations, it was decided that instead of holding two separate events, an all-day event would be organised on 17 December 2016.
Shareholders, members of Management, and a large part of the workforce spent a varied day in the wintery surroundings of Phantasialand, with a mulled wine reception in the late afternoon, and a convivial dinner.
In an impressive pre-buffet speech, Mr Klaus Picard addressed those present and looked back over the company's history. Videos compiled by our subidiaries in China, Japan and the USA, and filled with greetings and congratulations on our anniversary, were also shown.
At the end of the event, everyone agreed that it had been a roaring success.
