brox Summer Party 2023
Thursday, Jul 27, 2023
25 years brox! This milestone was celebrated at this year’s summer party. Since the company was founded in 1998, brox has gone through many exciting phases and this had to be celebrated in a fitting manner. Therefore, the necessary funds were provided to make this celebration an extraordinary gathering. The celebration took place on Friday, July 7, 2023, in a beautiful restaurant in the center of Stuttgart. All brox employees were invited, from those who have been with the company since the beginning to the newest colleagues, from managers to working students.
The day began with the arrival of the employees in Stuttgart. Overnight accommodations were reserved for them. This allowed everyone to celebrate without worrying about the way back. After they had checked in, rested, and put down their bags, it was time to go to the celebration. Cabs were provided for those without cars, but some decided to make their way on foot. So everyone gathered at the beautiful “beach restaurant” at 6pm and the party could begin!
Not only brox employees were present, but also colleagues from the sister company eccenca. Everyone had the opportunity to bring a companion and thus share the event with their loved ones. Welcome cocktails were waiting at the entrance of the restaurant and immediately the evening started with a round of greetings.
The brox employees are spread across the various locations in Wolfsburg, Stuttgart, Mannheim and Hanover, and most of them work from their home offices. So it was an opportunity for many to meet and get to know each other better. So the conversations continued happily and everyone took a seat in the beautiful outdoor area of the restaurant. The forecast was for a sunny 30 degrees, and everyone could only enjoy that. The weather was wonderful, and of course there was no dress code – the motto was “come as you are”. Shorts, flip-flops, T-shirt – the clothing styles were varied, but all suited the beautiful summer atmosphere.
Before opening the buffet, the CEO took the floor and told the story of the founding of brox. The road was filled with obstacles, but through determination and hard work, the level we can see today was achieved. His close business partner also gave a speech and personally thanked each and every employee, from those who have been with the company for 15 years to those who started just a week ago. In fact, brox made a record, three new hires at once in July 2023. After the speeches and acknowledgements, the buffet was opened and there was something for everyone! Vegetarians and vegans were also accommodated so everyone could eat and drink. Conversations continued briskly as we ate. Desserts were also provided after the meals: Yogurts, creams, fruits – there was really an abundance of choices.
Around 10 p.m., a surprise was waiting for everyone in front of the restaurant: a fire dancer! Indeed, we were allowed to experience an impressive fire dance show with rousing music and captivating effects. This surprise increased the good mood even more and prepared us for the second surprise: a DJ! The company had hired a DJ for the evening to close the party in the best way: with an open dance floor! Everyone danced exuberantly to good music. Those who wanted to be playful had the opportunity to challenge themselves in Mario Kart on Nintendo Switch or test their skills in table soccer. The party lasted until 3 a.m. As the staff and guests slowly returned to the hotel, it was time to rest from this eventful day.
The next morning, breakfast was offered at the hotel, and the celebration was not over yet! A joint visit to Stuttgart Zoo was planned for this Saturday, July 8, 2023. Everyone who did not already have to leave could participate. So the circle of this 25th anniversary of brox was closed. 25 years, but this is certainly only the beginning, because the brox still has many successes waiting for it!
