In 1995 Ulrich Kämmerling founded the EVENTAGENTUR artimage and created his sphere of activity. Here, the event manager combines creativity with a sense for technology as a matter of course. As a passionate musician, Kämmerling listens carefully, recognizes the nuances in the briefing and creates an individual event that hits the right note. Using the latest 3D animation, Ulrich Kämmerling presents the possibilities of a location and then effectively integrates cooperation partners. Budget, security, technology and emotions in harmony.
„Creativity needs a framework to be successful. That’s exactly why I feel so comfortable in the event business.“
In 1997 Susanne Kämmerling joined EVENTAGENTUR artimage. Previously, the hotel manager took care of the well-being of the guests as head of F&B in exclusive holiday clubs and on cruise ships. Flexibility combines it with a sense of quality when it comes to the equipment, decoration and, of course, excellent cuisine of an event. Susanne Kämmerling transforms spaces and creates atmosphere in the spirit of the event. For this, she sails the trend. With trade fair visits, on trips or in her excellent network, she finds inspiration, discovers the zeitgeist and uses it in a goal-oriented manner.
“Everything has to taste – not just the food. We develop each event in such a way that intellect, all senses and above all memory are fed.”
From numbers to weather: she reckons with everything. As a project assistant, Sandra Rhöse keeps the overview. She knows that there is no second chance in her industry. Timing, technique or teacup: everything has to be on the spot. Sandra Rhöse acts in advance and in the background. And when it comes down to it, she tackles on the spot.
“After graduating from business, I went straight to a craft enterprise with tradition, which I coordinated for many years. 2017 is the new beginning at EVENTAGENTUR artimage, where I can contribute my creative way. Class!”
Takes the back office far ahead: Anja Klinger-Schulz. After studying forestry sciences, he went to Messe Dresden. The multi-faceted and trained woman knows big events. With her husband and child she came to Leverkusen and to the EVENTAGENTUR artimage, which was looking for a cool computer with a sense of humour. Anja Klinger-Schulz has been organizing the office since 2016 – reliable, flexible and always relaxed.
“The fact that there is a lot of strategy, planning and above all understanding of numbers behind the creative performance of an event agency makes this job so unique to me.”
A structured mind with a sense of creativity: this is how Anna Lena has been contributing to us as a trainee since the beginning of August 2020. During her previous internship, we already sensed that she would be a good fit for the team. She approached us on her own initiative before graduating from high school.
Photography is her hobby. Interior design was her choice of study. At our company they combine their interests. Anna Lena is already developing digital plans for trade show booths and company events. Further modules of the three-year training to become an event manager will follow: These include budgeting, hazard analysis or the creation of hygiene concepts, for example.
“Special times are when my training begins. Corona is the driver for the digitalization of our lives and especially the event industry. The EVENTAGENTUR artimage is perfectly positioned here and realizes hybrid events. But honestly, I’m really looking forward to an analog event with music, dancing, communal food and friendly greetings – person to person.”
Marcus Bongartz is responsible for logistics in the EVENTAGENTUR artimage team. The trained pastry chef proves himself to be a newcomer to the side: for each event, he puts together the appropriate equipment, decorations and tools – cleverly combining them with the individually booked support of the cooperation partners. He manages the event agency’s entire 400-square-metre warehouse. In addition to basics such as cables, sockets or standing tables, real treasures await their use here, for example the modular movement landscape kju:b.
“Order is half life and the whole event.”
