Franziska Knuppe: ENERGETIX Catalogue Launch participants can see the top model live in person

FROGBLOG read­ers are bound to remem­ber that Franziska Knuppe was the celebri­ty who took part in the 2012 Art Advent Cal­en­dar char­i­ty event with ENERGETIX and was depict­ed in the work of art behind the 15th door.


ENERGETIX has been able to extend its col­lab­o­ra­tion with her: she agreed to mod­el the pho­tos for the new cat­a­logue. So she stood in front of the cam­era – togeth­er with pop singer Ronan Keat­ing – for ENERGETIX. She can be seen in the new cat­a­logue for the 2013/2014 sea­son – with great jew­ellery and great out­fits (so much can already be revealed).

Par­tic­i­pants at the 2013 ENERGETIX Cat­a­logue Launch should be dou­bly pleased: Franziska Knuppe will also be there at the mega event in Berlin.

About her: This inter­na­tion­al­ly suc­cess­ful mod­el (dis­cov­ered by cou­turi­er Wolf­gang Joop in a Pots­dam café) has walked the cat­walk for Issey Miyake, Vivi­enne West­wood and many oth­er fash­ion design­ers and labels and posed for numer­ous renowned star pho­tog­ra­phers like Peter Lind­bergh, Jim Rakete, Iris Brosch, Rox­anne Low­it and Kris­t­ian Schuller. The cool blonde has been the face of numer­ous cam­paigns – e.g. for Tri­umph, Joop, Oasis and Reebok — and adorned the cov­ers of Cos­mopoli­tan, Marie Claire, the Ger­man Elle, and oth­er mag­a­zines.

Berlin, here we come!

In a few days’ time every­body – both dis­trib­u­tors and ENERGETIX staff – will be mak­ing their way to Berlin, to the 2013 ENERGETIX Cat­a­logue Launch. It will be the first time in Germany’s trendy cap­i­tal. And Rea Gar­vey, Ingo Nomm­sen, Joey Kel­ly, Ralf Bauer and many more will also be board­ing their planes, trains and cars in order to appear on the big stage on time on 31 August.


Every­one at ENERGETIX head­quar­ters in Bin­gen is work­ing – hand in hand -– to make it an unfor­get­table week­end and the excite­ment is almost tan­gi­ble. How will dis­trib­u­tors and guests react to the atmos­phere and ambiance of the Estrel Con­ven­tion Cen­tre and to the items on the train­ing and the gala pro­grammes? Can this year’s Cat­a­logue Launch in Berlin be even bet­ter than last year’s awe­some event?


And what will be the reac­tions to the eager­ly await­ed jew­ellery in the new col­lec­tion? At an in-house pre­sen­ta­tion to the ENERGETIX staff a few days ago the new cre­ations met with a great recep­tion.

We will know more in a few days’ time: let the show begin!

NB: To get in the mood, you can take anoth­er look at the high­lights of the 2012 ENERGETIX Cat­a­logue Launch here.

Always in action: Joey Kelly takes on one sporting challenge after another… and sportEX is there

Joey runs through deserts and on one occa­sion ran right across the Repub­lic, to men­tion but a few of his feats. We even report­ed here on FROGBLOG about his not-to-be-imi­tat­ed moun­tain (!) bike chal­lenge in the Baltic Sea. Now there is fur­ther news about this Irish bun­dle of ener­gy who nev­er tires of tak­ing on almost any sport­ing chal­lenge, no mat­ter how unusu­al it may be.

Togeth­er at the sum­mit
So Joey Kel­ly dared to climb to the sum­mit of the Lienz Dolomites with Andy Holz­er, an Aus­tri­an who has been blind since birth. The report on this event will be broad­cast by ZDF at 5.45 pm on Sat­ur­day, 10 August.


Along the North Sea Coast Cycle Path
„It was fan­tas­tic, we had a great time!“ Togeth­er with ex-pro­fes­sion­als Jean­nie Lon­go (13-time women’s world cycling cham­pi­on and Olympic gold medal­ist) and Rudi Altig (for­mer world cycling cham­pi­on), Joey Kel­ly embarked on the North Sea Coast Cycle Path, the longest cycle path in the world. The trio cov­ered 2,500 of the 6,200 km long trail. The high­lights of their tour through Scot­land and Eng­land have been sum­ma­rized in a five-part Arte doc­u­men­tary.

Arte will be repeat­ing parts 1 — 3 on 17 August, start­ing at 2.55 pm (parts 4 and 5 have already been repeat­ed on 8 and 9 August — both at 7.45 am).

Guest of Ingo Nomm­sen on the „Volle Kanne“ pro­gramme
This enthu­si­as­tic sportEX wear­er encoun­tered long-time ENERGETIX Launch pre­sen­ter Ingo Nomm­sen on ZFD’s „Volle Kanne“ pro­gramme. The pair talked open­ly and gen­uine­ly about past chal­lenges — such as, for exam­ple, Joey’s extreme fast (which we would also ask you not to imi­tate) — and about planned activ­i­ties.

Presenting Tanja Bülter, the fashion expert for the ENERGETIX Catalogue Launch 2013

Tanja Bülter, 25.05.2011 in BerlinFash­ion jour­nal­ist and media coach Tan­ja Bül­ter will enhance this year’s Cat­a­logue Launch with her charm­ing­ly pre­sent­ed insid­er knowl­edge of the indus­try.

A fash­ion-con­scious Berlin­er, she has been host­ing numer­ous events — char­i­ty galas, press con­fer­ences, soci­ety reports, vernissages — for years and is known to a wide pub­lic through her appear­ances on n-tv and RTL TV. ENERGETIX Bin­gen has now man­aged to hire this media pro­fes­sion­al in 2013 to host the jew­ellery show. This young moth­er will con­tribute valu­able infor­ma­tion and expert tips on ENERGETIX’s eager­ly await­ed new jew­ellery col­lec­tion. The inter­na­tion­al par­tic­i­pants in the Launch can already look for­ward to her appear­ance in the Estrel Berlin on 31 August 2013!

Professional tips for newcomers: decorating workshop run by the ENERGETIX jewellery designer

The visu­al­ly appeal­ing and bal­anced dis­play of select­ed pieces of jew­ellery is an extreme­ly impor­tant fac­tor at fairs and mar­kets and also at home par­ties. The dec­o­rat­ing work­shop held dur­ing the Bin­gen event (already report­ed in FROGBLOG) served to demon­strate the sales-enhanc­ing effect of a jew­ellery pre­sen­ta­tion arranged accord­ing to pro­fes­sion­al stan­dards. It is impor­tant for begin­ners to acquire this knowl­edge and put togeth­er a pre­sen­ta­tion as effec­tive­ly as pos­si­ble.


The first intro­duc­to­ry part of the work­shop con­sist­ed of a talk by expe­ri­enced ENERGETIX jew­ellery design­er Janine Eisen­hauer. She out­lined the basic rules of jew­ellery pre­sen­ta­tion that need to be kept in mind when arrang­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion of goods in a pro­fes­sion­al man­ner. A par­tic­u­lar high­light of her talk was the pre­sen­ta­tion of the new ENERGETIX price tick­ets that com­ple­ment the ENERGETIX range of infor­ma­tion mate­ri­als.

… and prac­tice

The sec­ond part of the work­shop was devot­ed to putting the tips into prac­tice. Par­tic­i­pants were divid­ed into groups of two or three and arranged their own pre­sen­ta­tions. With the help of ENERGETIX sales aids like busts, box­es and dec­o­ra­tion dis­plays – and apply­ing the „gold­en sec­tion“ rule – all the dis­trib­u­tors suc­ceed­ed in cre­at­ing pro­fes­sion­al jew­ellery pre­sen­ta­tion tables.


The „basic dec­o­rat­ing“ out­lined at the work­shop — togeth­er with oth­er care­ful­ly placed dis­play mate­ri­als for pen­dants, bracelets and ear­rings — can cre­ate a good eye-catch­er at fairs.


Here’s wish­ing all dis­trib­u­tors con­tin­ued fun and suc­cess in putting these ideas into prac­tice!
