Gateway Award


We would like to invite you to attend the 15th Gateway Award! Our annual signature event in the Carolinas honors outstanding accomplishments in German American business relations.

This year we will celebrate on board of the USS Yorktown, an aircraft carrier built during World War II for the United States Navy. The event will feature a cocktail reception on the aircraft carrier’s flight deck with a beautiful view of Charleston, exceptional culinary choices, a full open bar, live music and dancing.
