Germany’s capital city Berlin will host the seventh edition of the FIM Gala Ceremony on Sunday 27 November 2016. Now established as the most glamorous event in the international motorcycle calendar, the 2016 FIM Gala Ceremony will welcome thirty-four FIM World Champions, eleven FIM Team World Champions, seven FIM Legends and three special prize winners to the impressive Tempodrom venue, close to the famous Potsdamer Platz where remnants of the old station façade can still be seen.
Five hundred guests will gather inside the Tempodrom Berlin to celebrate this unique occasion. This year, the FIM Gala Ceremony and Gala Dinner will take place in the same space, followed by the traditional after-event party.
The day before the ceremony, on Saturday 26 November, the nearby Sheraton Berlin Grand Hotel Esplanade will host the 2016 FIM General Assembly. Here delegates from the FIM’s one hundred and twelve affiliated National Motorcycle Federations will take part in the day-long conference.
A close partnership between the FIM, the City of Berlin and the German Motorcycling Federation (DMSB) has created the perfect platform from which to ensure yet another successful edition of the FIM Gala Ceremony, the FIM General Assembly and other associated activities that will take place over the weekend in this great and historic city.
Reinforcing its commitment to delivering sustainable and responsible events, the FIM will ensure that the Gala Ceremony is managed so as to engage with local suppliers wherever practicable in order to reduce the need for unnecessary transportation of goods and services.
