The German Business Association (GBA) and the Delegate of German Industry and Commerce in Vietnam (GIC/AHK Vietnam) has announced the upcoming GBA Oktoberfest Vietnam 2017 in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The GBA Oktoberfest in Ho Chi Minh City will take place from Thursday, September 21 to Saturday, September 23 at the Hotel Nikko Saigon. The GBA Oktoberfest in Hanoi, meanwhile, will be held two weeks later, from Thursday, October 5 to Saturday, October 7 at the JW Marriott Hotel Hanoi.

“The festive spirit is in the air and we are really looking forward to tap open the kegs and start the opening ceremony of the GBA Oktoberfest Vietnam in one week’s time!,” said Mr. Marko Walde, Chairman of GBA and Chief Representative of GIC/AHK Vietnam. “We expect to welcome from 1,200 to 1,500 guests each night. That adds up to a crowd of more than 8,000 guests attending the GBA Oktoberfest Vietnam 2017 in both cities.”

The GBA Oktoberfest Vietnam 2017 is proud to replicate the authentic atmosphere of the original event in Munich, with a large tent on open ground - the ‘Festzelt’ as it is called in German. “That is one of the reasons why we continue hosting the event in the beautiful garden of the Hotel Nikko Saigon,” Mr. Walde said. “The set-up of the tent will be carefully planned to take full advantage of the area.”

An original German buffet will also be served and free-flow special Oktoberfest brew will be introduced by Beck’s. Authentic music will be brought to you by the Anton Show Band, who will rock both cities this year.

The GBA Oktoberfest Vietnam 2017 is the perfect opportunity for building relationships with potential companies and people on a more personable level before entering into a formal business agreement. It is a well-organized event that allows the real personalities and values of individuals and businesses to shine through in lively and enjoyable atmosphere.

The first Oktoberfest in Vietnam was held in 1992 and immediately set a new milestone in the country’s social calendar. Over the last 25 years, the traditional German atmosphere and spirit has increased, providing both Vietnamese and foreigners alike with a festive Oktoberfest experience.
