Our objective:
To provide companies, agencies, trade associations and other institutions with a central point of contact for professional event planning.

And furthermore, we will introduce you to professional service providers at your chosen location.

Boutique "A. Lange & Söhne"

The tradition-steeped company "A. Lange & Söhne" is one of the world's most exclusive precision watch brands. In opening the first dedicated A. Lange & Söhne boutique on the Neumarkt square in Dresden in 2007, the company was returning to its roots: Ferdinand Adolph Lange owned a shop not far away before he set up his own watch-making workshop in Glashütte. In Germany's only Lange branch, opposite the Frauenkirche, business does not just involve displaying the precision watches by A. Lange & Söhne which are developed, crafted and fitted - largely by hand - in Glashütte; it is also about presenting the brand in a suitable manner in the familiar surroundings of Dresden.
