Erhardt Convention 2018

February 16, 2018

On 16 February this year, Erhardt held its Annual Convention in Bilbao under the slogan “Trabajando en el Futuro – Working on the Future”.

The company’s chairman, Eugenio Erhardt, opened the Convention by referring to the results for business 2017, the projects to be developed in 2018, and the challenges and goals the company has set itself over the short and medium terms.

The event was held at the Palacio Euskalduna Conference Hall in Bilbao and was attended by over a hundred senior management staff. Speeches were delivered by delegates from Erhardt’s different companies and business units, addressing the different initiatives and projects currently under way.

The guest speakers this year included Gaizka Zulaika, managing director of AEFAME -the Basque Family Business Association- who spoke about the characteristics and differential aspects of family businesses; Abel Matutes Prats, CEO of the Palladium Hotel Group, who introduced the revolutionary concept of Ushuaïa, a veritable magnet for fans of electronic music, as an adults-only theme park that guarantees unique experiences. On a single site it combines a new understanding of avant-garde hospitality with the performance of the world’s best DJs in “daytime parties”, and a selection of the most exclusive thematic restaurants.
