Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest AGM

 

Harry Vogt, President of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest, began his 2nd term yesterday by addressing an audience of board members, volunteers, City officials and community partners at the Annual General Meeting held at the Waterloo Inn Conference Hotel.

During the Annual General Meeting, Harry Vogt reviewed the highlights of the 45th Festival and officially ushered in the 2014 Board of Directors. Mr. Vogt then outlined his vision for the coming year of Canada’s Greatest Bavarian Festival, which includes:

“We will be collaborating with our corporate partners to introduce new products, provide sales training presentations to our festhallen partners to allow them to become better operators, thereby increasing our supplier and festhallen sales through this unique training program. Moving forward, we need to identify our most successful examples of community outreach and partnership and scale them up to generate more opportunities to everyone involved in our festival by providing more benefits for our partners, public, private and non-profit.”

Yesterday’s meeting also included Dave MacNeil’s Executive Director Report, which highlighted opportunities he would like to see this coming year…

“We will continue to work on performance improvement in delivering the “Ultimate Customer Experience” for our guests. We are committed to helping create the “magic” that is unique to [each] festhalle and put more bums in seats.”

The dates for the 2014 Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest are October 10th – 18th.
