In spring 1989 “Kontrapunkt Dekorationen und Veranstaltungsservice” started. We, the founders Stefan Rössle and Harald Böttcher, two friends at university and business administration students, saw this as a real perspective for the future. In addition to advertising and public relations, “Events” was another area of communication that became more professional.

Our first office: no garage, but the common student dormitory.
Our first big customer: the company Schaulandt – an electronics retailer with 9 branches in Northern Germany.

The business grew rapidly, already in 1990 the BGB company became a GmbH, in 1991 the first office was occupied. In 1992 the first foreign business was started: a sales conference for Schülke & Mayr at Madeira, Spain.

Many more customers were added quickly. Companies such as Hamburger Sparkasse and Shell have been our customers since the 1990s. This long-standing trust makes us proud, as do our many employees. They accompanied and accompany every project with great commitment, enthusiasm and a lot of heart and soul.

Highlights of the past years

Overall responsibility for the FIFA Fan Fest in Hamburg with 1.7 million visitors, the Hamburg Pavilion at the World EXPO in Shanghai or the first delivery of the Airbus A380 to Emirates.

Today Kontrapunkt is a communications agency with a focus on events, because “content is king”. We opened a second company location in Berlin in 2015. Our projects are running locally, but also worldwide – like currently the last preparations for the appearance of the Federal Republic of Germany at the Horticultural Expo in Beijing, China.

30 years of Kontrapunkt

This consistency is appreciated by our customers because it is an exception in our business. With our full service expertise in the field of events, we cover all relevant areas today: Content, media production, graphics, guest management, public relations, sponsor support and, of course, event organisation.

30 years of Kontrapunkt – a reason to look ahead. We want to offer our customers even more relevant service in the future, continue to be a strategic and partnership consultant, expand international cooperations and simply become even better every day.

This year we are celebrating 30 years of Kontrapunkt, with our own anniversary logo and some surprises. Be curious.

We are here! For our clients. Locally. International. Consistent. For the future!
