Once a year it’s “come together” and everything revolves around Intel. Key industry representatives and manufacturers of the computer industry gathered in Athens for an annual meeting from April 6 to 8, 2022, at the invitation of Intel. The 6-member Intel team from PRofiFLITZER has been there. Our Team Lead Matthias reports on his experiences:
“The flight from Frankfurt to Athens went as expected without any major problems and so after a couple of hours we sat in the bus shuttle to the hotel and enjoyed the view under a bright blue sky and pleasant 20 degrees. Slowly the anticipation increased, because how often does it happen that you can meet your colleagues from the other Intel country subsidiaries in such a great location as the Divani Caravel Hotel in person and spend time together?
We still had some time before the event started and so we spontaneously decided to explore the nearby Acropolis – the most famous building of ancient Greece and landmark of the city. Built on a high rock, the Acropolis once served as a defensive structure. Athens has always been under the special protection of the supreme Olympian god of Greek mythology: Zeus. Thus historically emotionally charged, we experienced as a team a varied circuit with breathtaking views of the city. The subsequent dinner was dedicated to getting to know each other and exchanging experiences with colleagues, as well as numerous culinary delights.
On the following day of the event, we attended various presentations and presentations of new products, technical advancements and solutions that make it even easier for every Intel user to meet the ever-increasing demands on PCs and notebooks and to remain future-proof. The absolute highlight of the event was the launch of Intel® ARC™. Because these new graphics solutions unleash the creative potential of users – from hardware to software to services. The focus of the development is aimed at premium gaming, content creation and borderless streaming.
After many interesting workshops and valuable discussions, the upcoming evening should remain in the memory of all of us for a long time as a crowning conclusion. An evening tour of Athens brought us to the port of Piraeus to a nearby restaurant. Here, an exclusive event area awaited us with delicious food, drinks and sirtaki typical of the country. The mood became more exuberant and we had fun dancing to club music. With time, however, our legs became heavy and we started our retreat back to the hotel, where we had a last drink at the bar to finish off the evening. Our heads full of great events, we all sank contentedly into our beds.
The next day, after a hearty breakfast, we attended the last Open Forum and then said goodbye to all the participants.”
What remains are strongly anchored feelings and memories of an outstanding event with Intel:
In this sense: “ALTOGETHER WONDERFUL”.
