In order to award the best sales teams of its franchise and wholesale partners, German retailer S.Oliver hosted the gala event ‘Realstars’ at Jahrhunderthalle close to Frankfurt/Main last Saturday. Under the slogan ‘Your job. Your performance. Your Show”, high-class partners from the fields of media, sports and society, such as German actress Veronica Ferres, Dr. Daniel Terberger of Katag, and Holger Knapp of Deutscher Fachverlag, held their laudation on the winners of the awards in seven categories such as ‘Best Operative Action’, ‘Best Visual Merchandising’ or ‘Best Newcomer’.

The event, that took place in Germany for the first time, was hosted by German entertainer Barbara Schöneberger, and Mathias Eckert, Director International Wholesale & Franchise at S.Oliver, and featured several live acts such as singer Andreas Bourani or Nathan Flutebox Lee.

Apart from awarding the best sales teams out of 500 competing teams, S.Oliver donated a total amount of € 45,000 to different charity organizations.
