GTCC holds first ‘Stammtisch’ in the New Year

The Thai-German Chamber of Commerce invited its members for a typical Stammtisch held at the Moon River Pub at the Thai Garden Resort. These meetings are held in Pattaya on the second Friday every two months - those months with the uneven days.

René Pisters, the hotel’s general manager, distributed a glass of free champagne for all the guests in order to wish them a happy New Year. After all guests arrived, Stefan Buerkle of the chamber went on stage to welcome all and gave a short speech.

The many guests felt at home at the pub and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere, the good food and the company of their friends.

As usual many different people joined the Stammtisch; business people, lawyers, factory owners, experts and Asian lovers. Name cards were exchanged, old friends welcomed and new ones made.

Sometimes it is much easier to start a business connection in an easy atmosphere like this then in a sterile office. There was no dress code to make them feel uncomfortable, because at the Stammtisch neckties are the exception. Leaders in the German businesses community like to meet casually in this famous pub and restaurant.

Besides all the interesting talks the guest had, they were entertained with very good music. “Action Dot Com” the Filipino house band at the Moon River Pub played foot-tapping pop music at its best and many were enticed out onto the dance floor.
