D – On May 15 and 16, 2014 the German distributor association, bwg, invited its members to the bwg Forum, which is held annually. The event was staged in Cologne and kicked off in the afternoon of the first day with a boat trip on the Rhine, before the lipcare specialist KHK opened its doors. The visitors learnt interesting information about the history of the family company, received an insight into the wide spectrum of customising options thanks to numerous best practice examples and got to know the production flows. The seminar programme on the next day was also open to non-bwg members. This year’s bwg Forum was brought to a close with a tour of the Old Town in Cologne and a joint dinner.
