40th Anniversary of the World Money Fair
January 31, 2011

Yesterday I attended a reception celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the World Money Fair held at the Bode Museum. At this affair Albert Beck, founder of the Fair was honored with a lovely PowerPoint program documenting the history for the WMF in pictures. Today that program is being presented to the public here at the Media Forum. At the Bode, Albert Becks new book on the history of the WMF was also present, today however, visitors to the Fair can buy a copy at the Gietl-Verlag booth.
