This provided an ideal occasion for Uwe Regenbogen, company founder and operator of the website, to celebrate the birthday of the successful company together with employees, partners and numerous representatives from the au pair industry in Kassel, Germany, where the AuPairWorld has its headquarters. The party took place on September 5 under a motto articulated by Regenbogen: “We're celebrating the au pair experience together with all those who would like to join us in continuing to popularise au pairing.” A 12-time host father himself, Regenbogen had also made sure to invite his family's first au pair to the celebration, who was happy to be in attendance.
Altogether more than 100 guests, who had accompanied the firm on its successful path to market leadership, came to the Kassel Schlosshotel to celebrate AuPairWorld's 15th anniversary. It was a friendly, familial sort of evening with lively conversations, a diverse program with something for everyone both big and small, and great food, music and dancing. The guests, who included many au pair insurance providers and partner agencies, used their time in North Hesse to celebrate, to exchange views and also to become a little better acquainted with the city of Kassel.
Attendees at the party also had the chance to see the premiere of the new AuPairWorld video – profiling the two millionth user to register on the website, a host family from Lucca, Italy. AuPairWorld visited the family recently together with a film team and shot footage for the video. Just three years previously, the one millionth host family from Simancas in Spain had registered on AuPairWorld. Naturally the question arose: When will the three millionth user be registering at AuPairWorld?
A photo gallery from the party can be viewed. As a further feature of the anniversary month's celebrations, AuPairWorld has also invited its users to participate in an exciting contest to win a range of great prizes for both au pairs and host families. You can take part in the selection of the winners and vote for your favourite entries from around the world by liking their photo entries.
