A group of RWTH Aachen alumni had the opportunity for the first time to look a bit behind the scenes during a tour at this year's CHIO competition.

A Look Behind the Scences

Wolfgang Mainz, both an alumnus of RWTH Aachen and member of the board of directors for the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennvereins, ALRV for short, greeted us and gave us a look at the work of the ALRV and the history of CHIO. Participants heard a lot of important and exciting information and asked many questions during a walk through the administration building with the press center and the CHIO museum. Last but not least they got a great and up-close view from the equestrian stands of the large riding stadium out over the grounds and in the dressage stadium of the modern sport facility.

Networking and Nationenpreis

Afterwards, the alumni met in the "Driver's Club" tent during the Aachen Maastricht Business Club reception to talk and network. The Nation's Cup was on the evening program. It was exciting and in the end the German team was closely beaten by the French. But we were happy for our German team to come in second place!

Many, many thanks to Mr. Mainz for the tour as well as Professor Ulrich Daldrup from the Aachen Maastricht Business Club for the hospitality and support!
