Heil & Sohn Festival 2018 – Our World Cup campaign

15. Jun 2018 | Services

What looks like a popular music festival is in actual fact the Heil & Sohn trade fair in Hanover. The mood was chilled, and our World Cup campaign proved to be a hit. Visitors to our trade fair stand were enthusiastic and we had a lot of fun together!


A festival without equal

Live music, food stalls or trucks at every turn, a big children’s party and warehouse tours in the newly completed logistics centre. To celebrate its 85th anniversary, Heil & Sohn came up with something truly special to offer the 100 or so industry partners and several thousands of visitors in attendance! We provided another highlight at the festival in honour of this special occasion for our customer Heil & Sohn. With the upcoming World Cup in mind, we had invited the world champions of table football to our stand. Anyone who was a match for the team led by Chris Marks could be in with a chance of winning the football table worth €1500. There were many other prizes to be claimed in addition to this fantastic centrepiece. So, as you can see, a visit to our trade fair stand is always worth the effort!

The world’s best table football players at our stand

After the weekend we had, it’s safe to say one thing: table football is a communicative sport that brings people of all generations together. Chris Marks and his teammate Marlin left visitors to the trade fair speechless – with a generous portion of fun and charm, of course. Surprisingly, visitors rushed to have a pop at the champs. Even if many of the brave volunteers had resigned all hope of winning in advance, they still wanted to learn what it was like to play against a world champion of table football the hard way. All the same, one single goal was enough to be entered into the draw for the Herth+Buss football table. Visitors were most amazed by the perfectly executed overhead kick and – in general – by the sheer force that the lads from Beat the champ were able to bring into play on the football table.

A spectacular overhead kick!

Also at the Heil & Sohn Festival…

The table football wasn’t the only thing that attracted attention. Our AirClean and SelectH2 products from the Elparts range turned more than a few heads, too. Our wall set up with ingenious repair solutions for workshops also proved popular. To name a few examples, these solutions included the RepLine assortment with pre-assembled repair lines made from flexible silicone, and the RepVac assortment, which is used to easily repair faulty vacuum lines.

All in all, we hadn’t expected such a casual and relaxed atmosphere. This is just another reason to delight in being part of this fantastic event. That’s goodbye from us – until the next time!
