The Grand Finale of GBA Oktoberfest 2023 was officially opened at Hotel Nikko Saigon on October 12, 2023, with a crowd of 1,500 attendees. The festival was inaugurated by the German Consul General H.E. Dr. Josefine Wallat, along with GBA Co-Chairman Mr. Elmar Dutt, and the Deputy Chief Representative of AHK Vietnam Mr. Björn Koslowski, by the special ceremony of opening the first beer keg with a hammer. The GBA Oktoberfest has been a symbol of the strong strategic partnership between Germany and Vietnam for over 30 years. It creates a special mark in the annual socio-cultural event calendar, bringing the unique German culture closer to the Vietnamese people.
We’d like to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation to the German Embassy Hanoi and the German Consulate General Ho Chi Minh City for their patronage of the event every year. Our sincere gratitude also goes to our valuable sponsors, partners, and especially to the GBA team for their great dedication and support.
