BVMW meets Presseball Berlin “Deutscher Mittelstandsball”

The Legendary Presseball Berlin – The Night of Legends – Tradition since 1872

The 117th PRESSEBALL BERLIN didnt disappoint for what its satnd for, with about 1,500 guests, entertainmet and networking took place on January 13, 2018.

Red carpet, beautiful women, noble robes, many well-known faces, a high celebrity – with guests from politics, media, economy, culture, sport and society, the guests came to the festively illuminated Maritim Hotel Berlin.

In addition to many traditions, such as the opening waltz, the charity raffle, a women’s donation and a packed ball bag, there were also innovations.

The motto in 2018 was “Deutscher Mittelstandsball” in cooperation with the BVMW.

For the first time, the German Mittelstand Media Award was presented at the Berlin Press Ball. The award was presented by Mario Ohoven, President of BVMW (Bundesverband Mittelständische Wirtschaft) to this year’s award winner, journalist dr. Wolfram Weimer.

Personalities from politics, culture and media, Jack White, football legend Jean-Marie Pfaff, lawyer and women’s rights activist Seyran Ates, various ambassadors and economic figures celebrated a glittering ball night.

The opening speech was given by Walter Kohl and gave an insight into the life’s work of his parents Hannelore and Helmut Kohl. It was very important to me to be able to win Walter Kohl as guest of honor for the press ball in Berlin, because Hannelore and Helmut Kohl were welcome guests at the press ball. Thanks to the father of German Unity and the European Unification, the ball in its present form has become possible with guests from Europe and around the world “, said Mario Koss, host and organizer.


The Presseball Berlin has been made possible for more than 100 years primarily by partners and sponsors. You are especially grateful, as are the hosts Melanie Simond and Mario Koss and the entire team.

The ball was already sold out for weeks and now you should mark the next press ball Berlin on January 12, 2019 in the calendar.
