Interior Design Partner JOI-Design

It has never been as crucial as it is now to position oneself correctly in the 'Hospitality Design' industry and concentrate on one's core brand, placing the guest and their needs at the center. And we say this with over 35 years of experience, during which we have developed over 500 hotel projects with clients such as CURIO by Hilton, Le Méridien, JW Marriott, Hyatt Place, Fraser Suites, and Capri by Fraser, and have been honored with over 100 awards.

Year after year, project after project, we have learned that for today's hotel guest, there are no longer clear boundaries between different moments and spaces of life. The demand for multifunctional solutions, a tailored brand experience, and an individually personalized atmosphere has significantly risen. Design is the finest concierge for the visitor and the primary success factor for the operator. JOI-Design sees an analogy in interior design to the leadership of an orchestra by its conductor: Only where other musicians step back can individual soloists stand out. Only where there is shadow can light unfold.

Winery Partner Tobias Rickes

Hello everyone,
I'm Tobi [as] Rickes. 
I'm a winemaker and I live and work in the Nahe wine region.

Already running your own winery at the age of 20?
At the age of 18, I was already able to start my dual studies for a Bachelor of Science in Viticulture & Oenology and work in renowned wineries on the Nahe, in Franconia and the Rheingau.
Two years later, at the age of 20, I took over my grandparents' business at the same time as studying and then successfully completed my bachelor's thesis in marketing. 
Right from the start, I restructured a winery with a lot of courage, perseverance, consistency, passion, but also losses, and today I can look back on a modern business with great vineyards and excellent wines. That makes me grateful.

Partner for soft drinks ClimAid

Think global. Drink locally." 
With locally delicious and climate-friendly drinks, ClimAid wants to make a small sustainable contribution to combating climate change and produce drinks that do not further pollute the climate with unnecessary CO₂ emissions. The idea behind this is based on three pillars: short transportation routes, climate neutrality in production and distribution and support for regional climate protection projects in NRW.

ClimAid's drinks are bottled in Haan in the Bergisches Land region and are only delivered within a limited radius of 100 km. Together with the bottler and suppliers, existing processes were reviewed and measures were taken to gradually reduce CO₂ emissions. The start-up offsets all remaining and unavoidable emissions by supporting a forest conservation project in Zambia. 

But that's not all: with its lemonades and spritzers, ClimAid also supports regional climate protection projects in the sales area with €1 per crate sold. The start-up's regionally bottled natural mineral water also has an additional ecological and social benefit. Unfortunately, although water is natural in our world, it cannot be taken for granted everywhere. ClimAid therefore donates 5 cents per bottle of mineral water to the non-profit organization Kumanga e.V. from Düsseldorf, which uses it to build drinking water wells in Malawi in East Africa and is committed to education and an improved quality of life.
