Dress Code, Crowd Ranking, Smartphones

Dresscode
Come as you are. Suits are not required.

 

Crowd ranking vote – How does it work?

As you may already know, the RAHM Contest Winner is chosen by all the participants (so-called crowd ranking). The voting takes place via your smartphone. Don’t worry: There is nothing to prepare for the day. Everything is explained on the spot. Just come and have a great time!

There will be three different challenges. All participants will be distributed equally into 10 different groups and for every challenge, the groups will change.

After each challenge, you get to vote through our website (access will be given at the contest). You can distribute 1 – 6 points for up to three different people from within your group meaning, that you can give out a maximum of 18 points (6 points to each person). For example, you can choose person A who receives three points and person B who receives five points and person C who receives 2 points. It is up to you, how many people you want to distribute points to (max. three people) and how many points you want to give every person. If you want to, you can also give no vote to anyone. You cannot give points to yourself – we will see that 😉

To get a better understanding of the day you can watch our videos from our RAHM Contest 2017 and 2018

 

Smartphone !!!

Since you will use your smartphone for voting, you will need it throughout the day. The voting will take place via a mobile website, you will not need any special apps. Wifi is provided.

Please bring your charger with you. There will be charging stations on site. For those who do not have a smartphone, paper forms will be provided. Please inform Katrine before the Contest, if that is the case.

 

How can I get to know the other participants?

All RAHM Contestants become part of the RAHM Community. There is LinkedIn & Facebook group for all members. Additionally, each contestant receives a RAHM Booklet containing contact information of fellow contestants.

In the end of April, we launched RAHM Members’ App available on Google Play and Apple Store.

++ Your connection from the airport ++

From Berlin Schönefeld Airport 

Ticket: Zone ABC, (get it at the ticket machine and don’t forget to stamp it)

From Berlin Tegel Airport 

Ticket: Zone AB, (get it at the ticket machine and don’t forget to stamp it)
There are no rail connections from this airport so you have to take one of the buses by the terminal A and B.
