In October 2020, Ludger Beerbaum’s equestrian sports centre, RIESENBECK INTERNATIONAL in Riesenbeck received the surprising news: Almost one year later, at the beginning of September 2021, the European Show Jumping Championships will take place at the Surenburg.
A lot has happened since then. The RIESENBECK INTERNATIONAL team has developed the equestrian centre into a top-class event venue in a very short time.
L&S was responsible for the provision and operation of the event technology, for temporary structures as well as the event management support.
The reception in the castle garden of the Surenburg was also a highlight in many respects.
Last Sunday, on the last day of the tournament, it was clear that André Thieme was the new Jumping European Champion 2021.
On August 21 and 22, 2021, the first open air of the meetMUSIC concert series took place in the garden of Draiflessen in Mettingen. In a stylish ambience, the great musical diversity of classical chamber music was combined with jazz and pop. The two presenters Marie König and Malte Arkona led through the program. The guitarist Viktor Stryapin, Liv Hansen on her harp, the Svevia Trombone Quartet, the Vision String Quartet, the band HeptaPolka, the duo Peter Fleckenstein and Žilvinas Brazauskas as well as the duo Anouchka & Katharina Hack, who took over the artistic direction for the open air festival meetMUSIC, presented themselves on stage.
L&S provided the sound and lighting equipment for the open air, in addition to the stage including the associated prints. The area was transformed into a stylish ambience by our light installation.
Our sound and lighting technicians took care of the musicians on site on both concert days.
During the 3rd Ecumenical Church Congress, we supplied graphic walls, decoration and backdrop components for a television service in a multi-storey car park in front of the impressive Frankfurt skyline. The ecumenical church congress took place digitally and decentrally in Frankfurt from 13 – 16 May 2021.
We supplied the Omnivision wall construction system for banners without joints as neutral backgrounds from our rental park. This was supplemented with printed motifs and as free-standing columns with digital printing. The cross was manufactured in our workshops. We also supplied platforms and furniture.
Logistically, the assembly and dismantling was a minor challenge, as the top parking deck was only accessible with small vans.
We made it possible for the German Environmental Award to be awarded safely and digital transmission for all online participants.
For the fourth time we accompanied the German Environmental Award as general contractor on the big stage. This time at the Congress Centrum in Hanover under very special conditions and with prize money totalling 510,000 euros.
We illuminated the event stage, on which the daytime speaker Judith Rakers led through the morning, in the blue-green brand colours of the German Environmental Award. Our Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who usually gives a speech on the environment award, was still in quarantine at the time of the award ceremony, which is why we recorded his inspiring speech on sustainability in times of Corona.
Together with our customer, we implemented a comprehensive hygiene concept, which included the necessary distance seating and Corona-compliant catering. Since fewer viewers than in previous years were able to participate, we also organised the image mixing and editing for the live stream. In order to make the event a success in the sense of the German
In order to make the German Federal Foundation for the Environment (DBU) sustainable, we worked here with energy-efficient LED lighting, effective transport management, waste avoidance and recycling.

Last few days I had Mr. Hurley & the Powder Monkeys tied up in our house. Small sample and all. Really handy with the Dortmund-Ems Canal at our doorstep. Straight from the ship to the stage. Ahoy!

For the second time in a row, L&S won the invitation to tender from the Deutschen Bundesstiftung Umwelt [German Federal Foundation for the Environment] and was able to carry out the “Week of the Environment” as a technical service provider in Berlin. On 7th and 8th June 2016, the Federal President Joachim Gauck invited almost 200 exhibitors to his garden to present their ideas concerning climate protection, energy, resources, soil and biodiversity, mobility and transport as well as building and living. Parallel to the exhibition, 6 main and 80 experts were held in moderated discussions.
The “musik: landschaft westfalen” offers visitors an experience of classical music and the arts, encounters and culinary specialties on six festival weekends. The Parklandschaft Westfalens serves as the place of the concerts. This area is remarkable due to its landmarks, its architecture and its attractions.
In August 2014, the great Kammerphilharmonie [chamber philharmonic] St. Petersburg, together with the MLW Festival Choir, hosted the Wasserschloss in Raesfeld. L & S supplied a 140 m² stage, lighting technology and the necessary transmission and sound technology for classical orchestras.
