Shimadzu has celebrated 50 years of Shimadzu in Europe with 300 guests attending an event in Duisburg, Germany, to commemorate the anniversary. The “Magic Moments Night” took place at the Mercator Hall and featured music, show acts, dinner, speeches, greeting notes, and a “Walk of History”. The musical part of the evening was covered by some members of the Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra. The show act performed by “Physikanten & Co” combined entertainment and science. Giant vortex rings flew 20–30 m across the hall, and in a rapid sequence of experiments the fascinating aspects of carbon dioxide were explored. For the “Walk of History”, Shimadzu collected historic advertisements, brochures, and photographs from exhibitions covering 50 years of corporate history in Europe.

Shimadzu’s Japanese-based Supervisory and Executive Board came from Japan to attend the party with the European Shimadzu team as well as Shimadzu’s distributors and subsidiaries. The evening’s programme was hosted by Asli Sevindim, a TV journalist born in Duisburg.
