Mr. Andreas Lapp, Chairman of The Board LAPP HOLDING AG and Honorary Consul of the Republic of India for Baden-Württemberg and Rhineland- Pfalz hosted the gala event addressing dignitaries present to extend their support to this celebration of the long and enduring partnership between twin cities of Stuttgart and Mumbai. The anniversary celebrations had a special focus on two major sectors tourism and film, which are highly valued both in India and in the region of Stuttgart.
The Festival provides an excellent platform for these thriving sectors to engage in a cross border intercultural exchange and help accomplish synergy between the tourism and film industry of the regions thus enabling partnerships between the Indian and global film industry.
The Festival will have award-winning wines from the Württemberg region accompanied by Swabian and Indian cuisine, folk music and a range of information at various stands. Expressing his delight on the 10th Anniversary, Mr. Andreas Lapp said “We are happy to announce the 10th Anniversary celebration of ‘Stuttgart meets Mumbai’ Wine festival this year with a special focus on film and tourism sector. We strongly believe in the art and culture of India and Germany and it’s a matter of great pleasure for us to provide good platforms to boost growth of the film and tourism sector between the two regions. This is a great opportunity for experts from both sectors to interact with each other, understand the dynamics of both the markets and exchange ideas thus paving the way for the future.”
The primary objective behind Lapp acting as a catalyst to expedite the trade relations between these two leading industries of India and Germany is that cinema is a powerful tool to develop interest towards tourist destinations. In the last few years, the film sector in south-west Germany has often caused quite a stir, and has made a name for itself with exceptional productions extending far beyond the country's borders. Further to this achievement, the 10th ‘Stuttgart meets Mumbai’’ Wine Festival will serve as an excellent platform for the decision makers to focus on the huge opportunities that the tourism and film industry of both the countries can offer.
