Behn Meyer’s 175th Anniversary in Jakarta, Indonesia
On 26th of October 2015, Behn Meyer Indonesia had celebrated the 175th anniversary at The Grand Ballroom Hotel Indonesia Kempinski, Jakarta. The fabulous event of gala dinner was held with a theme of “Celebrating a World of Capabilites”. 

Behn Meyer Indonesia President Director, Mr. Adhita Susilardjo, highlighted the Behn Meyer’s work ethics, spirit, and value that had been proven to help the company survive and grow for almost two centuries.

The peak of the gala dinner was marked with the cut of anniversary cake by Mr. Jens Kellinghusen, the Board Member of Behn Meyer Holding AG and Mr. Adhita Susilardjo. The ceremony was also followed by a toast, together with all the Behn Meyer shareholders, employees, and more than 150 business partner invitees.

Next, a famous sand animation artist who portrayed the clear image of Theodor August Behn and Valentin Lorenz Meyer delivered a special performance. The picture recalled the reminiscence of two young seafaring men who had established the company 175 years ago. Beside that performance, the sand animation artist also described the history of Behn Meyer, in combination with epic multi-cultural dance performance.

Finally, gala dinner was ended with an interactive Angklung performance, a traditional music instrument from Indonesia. More than 300 audiences in the Grand Ballroom Hotel Indonesia Kempinski were sharing the spirit of Behn Meyer’s 175th Anniversary by playing Angklung together, which had created a thrilling yet vivacious ambience among the audiences.
