Our Cases

A summer's day in the beauty of Bavaria

Idyllic surroundings + sporting fun = Bavaria at its best

At the end of June, partners, customers, and employees traded in their business suits for comfortable sportswear and joined our client for a relaxing day among the Alpine flora and fauna at Lake Tegern in Bavaria. A bus trip from Munich followed by a short walk took the group to the mountain hunting lodge, where a STARK!-designed mix and match program offered something for everyone.

Some participants took it easy and enjoyed conversing with one another against the idyllic backdrop of fields and forests. Others were busy making their own veal sausage in the Weißwurst Workshop using a hand-crank sausage stuffer. Of course, all their hard work was followed by a proper taste test. There was also something for those who love sports. At the Cross-Golf Challenge, guests could show off their athletic skill. And the archery event was perfect for those who could perfectly pair strength with concentration.

There was plenty of food to go around too. No one went hungry after this day of sporting fun! Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a hearty snack. In the afternoon they had a chance to chat over coffee and cake. The warm summer evening finished off with festive grilled specialties, such as a crispy suckling pig and delicious stick fish, as well as other delectable delicacies. And hardly anyone could pass up a glass or two of draft beer before taking the bus back to Munich after a special STARK! event surrounded by nature.

Girl Power

STARK!-strong girls take on the IT world

Our client has been an established name at the annual Girls' Day for many years. Once again, the goal this year was to spark girls' enthusiasm for STEM studies (science, technology, engineering, and math). Together with female students from the University of Applied Sciences in Pforzheim, our client showed how multifaceted jobs offered by high-tech companies really are—from mechanical engineering, design, and simulation to electronics and IT.

And the technology obstacle course proved how much fun technology can be. The whole day was hands-on and gave the girls an opportunity to ask questions and try things out. And while the first aid app (developed together with the German Red Cross) gave the girls a first look at software programming, the biofeedback analyzer (developed by two female students) was a way for them to test their ability to stay calm, cool, and collected. In the Chill Contest, only girls who could regulate their stress level successfully had a real chance of winning.

As a certified "Women Owned" company with many clients from the IT sector, we were particularly thrilled that STARK! Marketing was able to make a big contribution—for the eighth year on behalf of our client—at the opening ceremony of the nation-wide Girls'Day in the Federal Chancellery. The goal was once again to excite girls about modern-day STEM subjects and teach them more about innovative, fascinating professions.

  • Demo design and on-site implementation

Innovative software in a unique setting

Artificial intelligence meets modern architecture

In April, OEMs and system integrators accepted our client's personal invitation to join them for an exciting event in Munich. STARK! Marketing knew exactly what to do when it came to the theme of the two-day conference.

Not only were the topics to be presented truly amazing—from artificial intelligence to big data and high-performance computing—but the venue was unforgettable too. Eighty participants from the entire EMEA region met at Roomers, one of Munich's newest and trendiest hotels.

But that wasn't all. Even the gala dinner was held at an extraordinary venue. Participants enjoyed an unforgettable dinner in the inspiring atmosphere of the Premium Lounge at BMW Welt, the heart of the Bavarian automaker and the infamous architectural wonder where customers can pick up the new BMW they ordered. While the Käfer catering team provided delicious food for any taste, Toni Bartl and his original comedy show filled with unusual musical instruments made from garden tools gave guests a night to remember.

Yes, we did it again!

Innovative technology. Relaxed networking.

Anybody who's anybody in the HPC world was in Frankfurt at the ISC 2018 in June. And our client, a leader in supercomputing, was there as well, relying once again on STARK! Marketing's experienced team for its concept design and event organization.

What was the mission? Same approach as in 2017, with the same conditions and the same briefing. Sound easy? Not really, because the goal was to attract even more visitors this year using the same concept as last year. But our team loves a challenge. And this time it mastered it with flying colors three times over: at the booth, for the Special Keynote, and at the networking reception.

Ready to knock this project out of the park, we relied on our recipes for success and made everything just a little more grandiose and a little more impressive. Even from far away, the branding areas caught everyone's eye. With cutting-edge product demos and a collaboration zone with integrated theater, our client's booth brought in more visitors than ever before. Designed specifically for our client by our creative STARK! team, the Fellow Traveler Tour was an ingenious way to ensure that our client's partner companies were also an integral part of the successful campaign. And the Special Keynote, with approximately 400 attendees, was a big hit.

To keep the positive energy flowing, our client hosted an evening event at an exclusive venue high above the Frankfurt rooftops. While guests enjoyed lively discussions in the special "Meet the Expert" zones, the rooftop terrace at the ALEX Skyline Plaza offered relaxed networking in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. As the sun set, guests finished off the evening with a delicious meal and tantalizing drinks. At the end of the day, it wasn't just the 450 invited guests who were thoroughly satisfied with the entire event. We are proud to say that our client was too.

There's only one more question left to answer: Will we do it again?

Artificial Intelligence and the Latest Trends

Artificial Intelligence and the Latest Trends

The era of artificial intelligence has already begun

Even today, artificial intelligence is making many things possible that were unthinkable just a short while ago. But where does the potential lie in technology? Where is machine learning already being used? And what doors will deep learning open in the near future?
Our client invited decision makers to the hottest and most modern venues in Munich, Paris, London, and Moscow, as part of the AI Summit Series, to discuss these questions and learn more about Intel's AI strategy.
Following the one-day summit, participants used this extraordinary opportunity to discuss AI trends and to network and exchange information with presenters and attending IT experts in a relaxed atmosphere.
