Through the new Chicago EDC, BSH will have the opportunity to collaborate directly with consumers, as well as some of the most influential architecture, development and design firms in the world. The new EDC is also an important step to further growing relationships with our distributor network in the Midwest.
The opening day celebration started with an exclusive media preview and culminated with an evening VIP reception for local retail partners, designers, architects, builders and members of the trade community from the surrounding area. The reception featured decadent bites and refreshments prepared by chefs and served in the BSH kitchens, led by Brand Directors Natascha Kruusi, Gaggenau; Beatriz Sandoval, Thermador; and Anja Prescher, Bosch home appliances.
On hand throughout the evening to help celebrate were special guests for each brand. Ingo Rasche, Master Baker, served and prepared delicious fresh baked bread and pastries in the Gaggenau kitchen; Katrina Markoff, founder of local Vosges Haut-Chocolat, shared a special selection of incredible chocolates in the Thermador kitchen; while brand ambassador Danny Seo and brand partner Dan Brunn were both on hand in the Bosch kitchen to discuss why they love to use and specify Bosch appliances.
