The official start to the week was created by the winners themselves with the presentation of their home countries, the universities attended and their student research projects. On the guided tour of the Rieter production facilities in Winterthur and the Automotive production works in Sevelen, the prize winners got to know Rieter‘s fundamental values and company culture more intimately. In addition, there were numerous opportunities to establish contact with management members and employees of Rieter.

Winners impressed

A trip to Stein am Rhein and the Rhine Falls during the week could definitely not be omitted. The Award winners were visibly impressed by the volume of water at the Rhine Falls. A visit to the show dairy in Stein, Appenzell was also a special experience; equally the trip to the Titlis in central Switzerland followed by a stroll around the town of Lucerne was one of the unforgettable highlights of the week. As the crowning finale of the Rieter Award week, on Friday evening the official presentation to the winners by the Head of Markets, Reto Thom, and the respective regional heads occupied an important place on the program. Saturday was then the day when the brand new members of the Rieter Award Club embarked on their home journeys.
