The design concept of the Summit-Event Area reflected the new management principles of Daimler AG and served the networked program as an emotional open platform. Modules of information and entertainment were held in the style of a silent conference, creating a calm and relaxed atmosphere with large, connecting rooms and wide viewing axes.
The WHY-Box acted as a gate into the Leadership 2020 world for the participants. 360° projections visualized the Daimler pioneering spirit of the past 130 years up to the challenges of the new age of digitalization.
For the #stepintochange you need the right outfit. In the sneaker big box the participants received change game sneakers in the corporate design colours of the Leadership 2020 campaign.

The goal and challenge of the Grow the Network Tour was to effectively network Ambassadors and HR employees. The RedBlue in Heilbronn offered two days of time and space for exchange and active learning. All participants were equipped in their roles with the relevant tools - specialist knowledge, methods, contacts. The result was a group-wide change community of multipliers.
The workshops were held on two levels around the joint plenum. Due to the completely open design of the areas and the plenum as a connecting element between the two floors, the guests experienced the "community feeling" at every point in the room. All areas were visible, and Silent Conference technology enabled guests to integrate themselves acoustically into other workshops at any time during their free time.
Foodtrucks and "Brown Bag Lunch" bags allowed a catering concept that was independent in terms of time and space, which also showed the effect of networking at the joint evening event.
The great added value for the participants was confirmed by the good evaluation results (at least 4 out of 5 stars in all questions). The specially programmed homepage, which was displayed in tandem with the newly developed event app, both the booking tool and the content hub, was visited more than 10,000 times and the content downloaded more than 3,500 times.
