The organizers were optimally prepared for the crowds. Some 60,000 pastries and salty snacks helped satisfy mini appetites. Around noon, over 10,000 portions of original Munich Leberkäs, veal patties and wraps filled with basil cream cheese and smoked salmon were served, and nearly 2.5 tons of fresh meat products and sausages were consumed. Over 12,000 liters of cold drinks and 20,000 cups of hot coffee quenched shareholders’ thirst. A total of 50 cooks, 320 catering staff and 40 kitchen personnel were on hand to make certain that not one plate nor one of the 75,000 cups remained empty.
Ten thousand Siemens climate protection card games illustrating the most important energy-saving technologies were also distributed.
The Siemens Stiftung celebrated its debut at the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting and for the first time provided visitors with information about the foundation’s work in the areas of education and social issues, society and technology, and art and culture as well as news about its current relief measures. The foundation and Siemens employees have raised more than €1 million in monetary and non-monetary donations for Haiti.
