From the very morning preparations were under process in the premisses of both companies, so that, precisely at 1 p.m., the door could open to greet the honorable guests – the employees together with their family members.
The Open Day began with the guided tour around the area, including the production lines, to which the door is usually closed during the year for unauthorised personnel. For those who wanted, a short document was available in the form of a six-minute video, showing the crucial moments of production process in Slovarm.
It was „downstairs“ though, outside the rooms and halls of Samm Holding a.s., where the main course was served, especially, to the kids. Through the sounds of music you could hear their enjoyment when they were jumping in the Bouncy Castles, on a trampoline, or when they shot arrows in the archery corner and scored goals with a floorball stick. And of course, while the small faces were, as usual, being painted, a makeup artist took care of the ladies. The whole event was safely in the fluffy hands of Mickey and Minie, the two Disney characters, who were with the kids all the time – dancing and making selfies untill the evening.
The queue for the refreshment was long, but hopefully the visitors didn´t mind it – with all the excitement going around. And they were quite a few – 650 including 200 kids. On the top of it, each employee was given a free pass to the Folklore Festival taking place the same weekend, so the show could continue some longer.
We can´t wait to see the next year´s Open Day in the same numbers :-)
