Unfortunately, it is the news we had all been expecting: as no large-scale events can be held in Germany until the end of October this year, the Berlin Hotel and Gastronomic Industry Championship also had to be cancelled. Originally, waiting staff, barkeepers, cooks, porters and beer delivery drivers were to compete on the Kurfürstendamm on Saturday, 19 September 2020.
Although it hurts to take such a step, organizers, sponsors and participants all agreed that this is the correct action to take in the current situation. The health of all concerned takes top priority. However, this is not the end of the competition. We are already looking forward to an exciting event in 2021, when the words – ready, steady, go – send off the city’s fastest service staff.
