My only wish this year:
This month, our co-founders Maria and Martin traveled to Frankfurt for an important partner meeting. Business trips and a global health crisis — how can that be compromised?
Until a little more than a year ago, business trips were almost part of the daily business of our founders. Not only important trade fairs, but also partner discussions or certain meetings required shuttling between Dresden, Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt and many more locations.
Then the Covid pandemic hit and turned everything upside down. Meetings with our business partners took place almost exclusively online. Of course, this also brought some advantages: you saved yourself (and the environment) from traveling, spontaneous postponements were much easier to implement, and the local distance hardly mattered anymore. So many new doors were opened for us.
In spite of all that, we are glad that now and then, business trips are possible again — if you stick to the hygiene concepts. This also means that traveling no longer feels like stress, but on the contrary is something special and a real highlight.
We are happy to have this privilege — and hope that soon it will no longer be a privilege.
