The 50th anniversary of Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup is being celebrated with a €10,000 donation for the benefit of the Children's Cancer Charity in Germany. Company founder Friedrich Salzbrenner, who turned 80 in December 2012, will present a cheque to Hans-Peter Krämer, chairman of the German Cancer Aid on 26 September. It was his workshop, established 50 years ago, that lay the foundation for the global Mediagroup as it exists today, with 15 German and international branches and around 20 distributors. The 50th anniversary is just one of several anniversaries being celebrated by the Mediagroup this year: Stagetec Entwicklungsgesellschaft will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in Berlin, and Delec will be honouring its 25th anniversary in Göllheim. The group’s products have been featured in many high-profile installations such as the BMW Welt in Munich, the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi. www.stagetec.com
