First listening, then pulling the strings in the background: "Blue Wheels" turns big wheels at events in the Grand Hall ZOLLVEREIN.

When Florian Kohn is asked what the most important thing in his job is, he doesn't think twice: "Listening!" The managing director at Blue Wheels in Essen and his team offer all event technology services from a single source - including as a permanent partner for the Grand Hall ZOLLVEREIN.

Listening to find out what the real purpose of an event should be. Sounds sober? It isn't! After all, there are countless reasons why companies invite people to events. For example, a company anniversary is to be celebrated with the entire staff, customers and partners, an information event is to be given the right setting or a congress is to end with stylish evening entertainment.

Simply greet guests in a good mood

"As event technicians, we have two main target groups in mind," Kohn explains. "The hosts and the guests." On the day of the event at the latest, hosts should be able to relax and guests should feel comfortable. "After all, board members or managing directors have a completely different job site than running the event; they simply want to greet their guests in a good mood." Florian Kohn has up to 40 employees on the job. Depending on the size of the event and the effort involved, he can also bring in freelancers. With his crew, he covers everything: logistics, lighting, stage construction, and sound and video technology. What happens in the background, what strings are pulled, remains invisible to the outside. This is also the reason for the name of his company. Blue Wheels is the name of the blue wheels that are mounted under most flight cases. Anyone who has ever worked at an event or trade show will know them. They run as smoothly as they do quietly and leave no traces.
