New Year Reception 2018

“Mannheim as a place for women” was the main topic of this year’s New Year reception by the city of Mannheim, which took place on 6 January in the Rosengarten conference centre. The inspiration behind the theme was women’s suffrage, the introduction of which marked its 100th anniversary in 2018.

Around 9,000 citizens accepted the invitation of the Lord Mayor and attended the New Year reception in the Rosengarten. The Stadtmarketing team also took the opportunity to present Mannheim and its 2018 highlights. There are plenty of reasons to look forward to the next twelve months. For example, the UNESCO City of Music is already preparing for the activities surrounding the 15th anniversary of the Pop Academy Baden-Württemberg. In addition, there are plenty of top-class music festivals on the programme, and in June the new Kunsthalle will open its doors.

For Stadtmarketing Mannheim and its partners, the reception is a welcome opportunity to present their activities to a broad public in 2018. On the Stadtmarketing stand, there was also the opportunity to discover freshly printed new tourist brochures and an updated city map.
