What awaits you?
After a refreshment with croissant and coffee, we start with a short introduction of the Checkpoint Premium Partners in Pecha-Kucha format. Afterwards, young employees will be available to answer your questions in the Chat Room before you have the opportunity to meet representatives of the agencies in person at the trade fair. Afterwards you will visit an agency in small groups and learn more about the work in political Berlin as well as the entry into the industry. The leading agencies in the capital will give you an insight into their work between politics, business and society, so you can test in small workshops whether you have what it takes to become a political advisor. In the late afternoon you will continue with the traditional Elephant Circle, where you can discuss with the leading heads of political consulting. Together we will end the eventful day with snacks and drinks.
Before we move on to the social part with the Networking Night, you will have the opportunity to talk to the leading heads of the public affairs industry at the Elephant Circle and ask your questions. Afterwards, all Checkpoint partners as well as other actors in the political Berlin will be available at theme tables to get to know each other.
