A short visit to Berlin
Let’s start with the Fernsehturm or Berlin TV Tower, which is an iconic landmark in Berlin, standing at 368 meters (1,207 feet) tall, making it Germany's tallest structure. Constructed in 1969 in East Berlin, it serves as both a broadcast tower and a popular tourist attraction. The tower's observation deck at 203 meters (666 feet) offers panoramic views of up to 40 kilometers (25 miles).
The revolving restaurant called the "Sphere," sits just above the observation deck, providing diners with changing city views. This historic symbol of East Germany attracts millions of visitors yearly, accessible via public transport in Alexanderplatz, a central hub for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

At the convention
Visiting a convention is always fun as there are plenty of new technologies to see and touch.
See some cool new speaker-tracking tools in action while tracking my movements at a stage.
I‘m really looking forward to using this technology on Hybrid events to reduce the complexity of the audio and video setup.
