They draw their power from the seriousness and reputation of the award, relevant content, fascinating personalities, emotional moments, and appreciation for the different responses to common challenges. The goal is to achieve the broadest possible reach with strong narratives of sustainability for award winners and partners. 

Among the guests are personalities from business, politics, culture, media and personalities from important multipliers for the idea of ​​sustainable development. After an online event in 2020 and a hybrid event in 2021, we hope for a full hall again at the award ceremonies in the anniversary year 2022 on 1 and 2 December at the MARITIM Hotel Düsseldorf.
