The guests of the 34th Gewista Poster Party were greeted by their host Franz Solta, CEO of Gewista, in glorious summer weather and then right away could really rock out to the evening’s musical open air main act, the legendary Spider Murphy Gang and their cult hits. Then DJ Eberhard Forcher provided plenty of party spirit in the Arkadenhof. As an alternative, people could also dance to theturntable sounds of DJane Colette in the Volkshalle. The guests were plenteously supplied with fabulous refreshments of cold drinks and culinary delights.

Franz Solta, Gewista CEO and host, spoke of the successful evening with customers and friends of Gewista: “In previous years, I was able to enjoy the Poster Party as a guest and never ceased to be impressed by the importance this party has in the communications industry. Now that I can be the host of this “industry institution” for the first time in my role as new Gewista CEO, the party presents itself once again in a different dimension. Also the Poster Party’smagnificent venue, the lovely City Hall Arkadenhof, is a very nice statement which symbolises Gewista’s connection with the city. My thanks go to all our guests, our customers and partners, who visit us all year round, as well as tothe employees of Gewista for their dedication.

Fabulous party night in the Arkadenhof of Vienna’s City Hall.

As always, the guest list of the 34th Poster Party was like a Who’s Who of the Austrian advertising and communication industry but apart from these, there were also many friends and partners of Gewista from the worlds of business, art & culture, politics and society who honoured the party with their presenceuntil long after midnight.
