Family Festival 2023
More than 1400 visitors celebrated the Family Festival at the Emsland Group for the first time on July 26, 2023. A day full of games, fun and good food! The relatives and children of our employees had the chance to gain an insight into the Emsland Group and, above all, to enjoy themselves and spend a great day on the premises in Emlichheim. Around 400 visitors arrived in the morning. This number was then more than doubled again in the afternoon. Around 1000 family members came together to celebrate the family festival at the Emsland Group.
Both the morning and the afternoon started with an official welcome by the managing directors Stefan Hannemann and Christian Kemper. Afterwards, everyone was able to take advantage of the varied and wide-ranging program and get to know the Emsland Group better in a familiar and festive setting.
Children could let off steam on bouncy castles and a bungee trampoline, enjoy refreshments at a paddle boat station and have a cool design put on their face at the children’s face painting session.
At the same time, guided tours of the WaltrAut, the Innovation Center and the wastewater treatment plant also took place throughout the day. A special highlight was the pathway railroad. Families were able to explore the entire site in a comfortable and entertaining way. During the tour, the tour guides not only provided interesting information, but also ensured a good atmosphere with short singing performances.
There was also a photo booth where many families had a souvenir photo taken, which they could then take home with them.
Where there is so much to see and explore, there are of course also hungry people. These could help themselves to a large range of food in various food trucks. Whether suckling pig from the grill, fresh fish, classic snack specialties or falafel – there was something for everyone. Of course, an ice cream as dessert was not to be missed.
In addition, all visitors received a ticket for the big raffle, which took place the following day at the company party. This gave them a chance to win great prizes. These ranged from vouchers to technical equipment to an e-scooter or a Weber grill.
The family festival was a great success! We would like to thank all families and especially the colleagues who organized and implemented this great day!
