With its 30th VDH network meeting the Verband der Hallen- und Indoorspielplätze („Association of hall- and indoor playgrounds“ www.myvdh.de ) could celebrate a small anniversary on 13th and 14th May.
50 guests were there when we took off to the Dechenhöhle in Iserlohn, which is a stalactite cave. The following tasting in the Märkischen Spezialitäten Brennerei (distillery) aroused enthusiasm. As a distributer for liquors for Sansibar, on the island of Sylt, the founder Klaus Wurm promised highest quality. Despite the high-proofed tasting there was also time for an entertaining lecture about the topic of social media. Contigo informed about the possibilities and risks of facebook and others. Secondary discussions on this topic were hold at the get together in the evening and hold a lot of potential. It remains to be seen which ones of the participating indoor playgrounds intensifies their use of of social media in the future.
As enlisted member of the VDH, we look forward to the next network meeting in November. By the annual trade show Intobia in Fulda, a secondary exchange is granted.
The VDH organizes network meetings on a regular basis. For the members, there is the possibility to meet up with the suppliers from the leisure industry, get connected to them and to cultivate contacts.
