Saturday, September 24, 2022, Vancouver, BC – Several members of the German Canadian Business Association, as well as myself with Westcoast German News and other prominent members of the German-Canadian business community were invited to Brian Jessel BMW VIP Launch Event.
There was valet parking, a red carpet and the most amazing “photography wall” where everyone could have their picture taken the minute they walked in the door. Drinks and light refreshments were sponsored and available to gratis to all guests.
Here we are: (left to right) Elke Porter (me) with Westcoast German News and the secretary of the German Canadian Business Association (GCBA). Then Abdel Karim Awwad, the Head of Sales & Marketing at Brian Jessel BMW as well as the planner of this fabulous event, then Beatrice Schreiber President of the German Canadian Business Association, and Laura Cáceres, a junior graphic designer with Brian Jessel BMW. The GCBA is happy to announce that Brian Jessel BMW is one of their corporate members and that Abdel Karim Awwad is on the Board of Directors as “Cooperate Business and Membership Development Director”
The room was spectacular and the 250 guests were treated to wine and light refreshments.

We were treated to two performances from the Goh Ballet Academy choreographed just for this occasion.
It was a beautiful car, and if you ordered one on the spot, they would be able to have it in your hands by next year. Hot off the assembly line.
