The most cutting-edge events technology for Maritim Hotels
The nationally and internationally active Maritim Hotels group is repositioning itself with regard to its conventions and events management. Since 1st January 2015, two prestigious companies specialising in technology for events, conferences and conventions, Kuchem and Braehler, have been in charge of events technology and technical support at the Maritim Hotels in Germany. The contract was signed by the three parties at the end of 2014.
Maritim Hotels is Germany's largest private provider of convention facilities. Maritim Hotels, with 50 locations in Europe, Egypt and China (with 36 properties in Germany alone), has been a key part of the German hotel scene since the late 1960s. Every year, the 36 Maritim Hotels across Germany host a wide range of events from small conferences to corporate parties and national and international conventions with up to 6,800 participants. From now on, Maritim will be relying on extra input from Braehler and Kuchem for support in its in-house technology and expanding its own technical facilities. The two leading specialists for conference and convention technology provide complementary technical equipment where necessary, offer support for technical planning and supervise entire events in their role as all-round service-providers. “The partnership with Kuchem and Braehler is an important step for us towards further fine-tuning our technical event and convention expertise,” says Joerg Bacher, Director of Maritim Hotel & Internationales Congress Center Dresden, who was in charge of contract negotiations. “It gives us access to qualified staff and the best modern technical equipment while also allowing us to broaden our offering in terms of technology and service. This is what makes the collaboration so interesting for us. It puts us in a position to meet our customers' needs better, more quickly and with greater flexibility.”
The service package: from stage machinery to conference technology
The contract drawn up between Maritim and Braehler and Kuchem is intended to be the basis for a long-term collaboration. Included in the service package is the provision of audio, video, presentation, IT, lighting and stage machinery as well as conference and interpreting technology. The two companies work exclusively with renowned manufacturers and prestigious Braehler technology, known for its aesthetic and functional appeal. Kuchem and Braehler also support Maritim Events Management with the technical conception, planning and execution of events. Walter Kuchem, Chief Operating Officer and owner of Kuchem Konferenz Technik, adds, “We have been working with various Maritim Hotels for 20 years and appreciate the trust Maritim puts in us. We are sure that, with our experience and qualified staff, we will be able to support the in-house technology and contribute to the further expansion of Maritim's technical events management.” Braehler has also been working in event and conference technology with individual hotels in the Maritim group for several years. Christophe Permantier, Chairman of Braehler ICS Konferenztechnik AG, also welcomes the decision: “This concrete collaboration will allow Maritim Hotels to improve its own service portfolio in the field of events and conventions technology in the future, according to demand, and to expand its offering in a customer-oriented manner. The collaboration is also a huge asset for Braehler, of course. I am convinced that we can offer Maritim Hotels real added value with our services and products. And that is what it comes down to.”
