1969 marked a turning point in the history of mankind. Not only because the first man set foot on the moon, but there were also a number of other revolutionary developments underway. IBM presented their first floppy disk while Arpanet, the forerunner of the Internet, went online. It was also the year that saw the birth of OCTANORM. With his ingenious system, Hans Staeger radically changed the exhibition world. At the same time, he laid the foundation for a network that today spans the entire globe.

We would like to take the opportunity today to personally thank you once again for your many years or even decades of trust and loyalty, and we look forward to working on further projects with you in the future.
