Munich, 25th June 2015
Premier Tax Free, invited German retailers to their summer rooftop party for an evening of entertainment and an insight into the future.
Overlooking the Olympic Stadium, guests, including delegates from Vertu, The KADEWE Group, Hilscher Jewellers, and Bayern Tourism Marketing, were welcomed with a Champagne reception and music by Gladys & the Diamonds.
Premier Tax Free Country Manager, Kai Niedermeyer, started the proceedings with a welcome to the new Premier Tax Free, Munich premises and an introduction to how Premier Tax Free work with partner retailers to increase sales to international shoppers; “This is achieved through our wide-range of services including Tax Free shopping, dynamic currency conversion (DCC), business intelligence, cultural training, and our innovative Tax Free solutions, “said Mr Niedermeyer.“We welcome you to experience these solutions, and, teamed with insight from industry experts, we hope to equip you for the future of international shopping.”
Marketing expert, Professor Kleiber-Wurm, then held the keynote address ‘Future Shopping‘. His animated presentation discussed the development of our society from a scientific point of view and the resulting consequences for business and retail.
CIO, Stefan Intemann, followed with demonstrations on the latest Premier Tax Free solutions, which included Premier Kiosk, the first self-service machine, enabling international shoppers to print their own Tax Free forms. “With International Shoppers spending up to five times more than domestic Shoppers, it’s fundamental that retailers have solutions in place to capitalise on this. Busy retailers often become frustrated with traditional Tax Tree solutions and problems such as increased queuing times, explaining procedures in different languages and managing tour groups. Premier Kiosk has been developed to resolve these problems and to provide the best Tax Free shopping experience, ” said Mr Intemann.
Service Coach Hans-Jürgen Hartauer then explained ‘Future Service‘ to the audience by means of an interactive role play.
