The German Status Quo

Together with both of the initiators of the Alfred Herrhausen Society and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Triad Berlin developed the program and supported panel recruitment for the first edition of the "Thinking of Germany" conference. Moreover, Triad Berlin was responsible for the development, design, and organization of the conference as well as the evening event.

On the basis of provocative perspectives, participants passionately and knowledgeably discussed the state of the nation. Each of the three panel discussions on politics, economics, and culture saw two prominent panelists debate a specific issue. Among the speakers were journalist Henryk M. Broder, philosopher Peter Sloterdijk, and politician Peer Steinbrück. 


For TRIAD Berlin, the first "Thinking of Germany" conference marked the beginning of a long-lasting and trusting collaboration with the Alfred Herrhausen Society and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. It also presented the launch of a new conference brand with an unusual outer appearance.
