Z43 Glowing Night

On September 15, 2023, Z43 celebrated its dazzling annual party in a mesmerizing journey of the 1970s neon, psychedelic wonders, and culinary delights.

On September 15, 2023, after a nearly 4-year break, Z43 hosted its dazzling annual party at ZSG Werfthalle in Zurich Wollishofen. Approximately 350 enthusiastic guests, from the moment they arrived, were transported to a world of vibrant nostalgia, as the venue pulsated with the spirit of the 1970s.

As in previous years, the event was catered by Franzoli, whose culinary prowess contributed to an unforgettable experience. Guests were treated to an array of delectable dishes, each a testament to Franzoli's creativity and vast expertise. From retro-inspired Russian salad to elegantly presented sushi, pasta, and a variety of vegan and meat options that were available at various food stations throughout the night, every bite was a journey through flavors and textures that left a lasting impression.

The dress code “dress to glow!" was embraced with gusto, covering everything from bell-bottomed trousers to psychedelic prints, transforming the venue into a riot of colors and patterns that glowed brilliantly under the pulsating blacklights. The venue decoration provided by Pfeffermint, together with spectacular sound and light installations by Invasion further added to the immersive experience.

The Tin Soldiers took us on a journey of rock music with a focus on the 1960’s and 70’s, seamlessly blending with the lively beats of DJane Nici and DJ Evangelos, creating an electric atmosphere that had everyone on their feet dancing.

A couple of performances also left an indelible mark on the evening. First up, led by show master Mike Summerfield, were Z43’s sales channels, who delighted everyone with their spirited karaoke renditions. Their enthusiasm was so infectious that the crowd instinctively joined in the fun. A little later in the evening, IT'IS students took the stage to perform with great enthusiasm and creativity a fun neon-inspired dance show act that immediately captivated the audience. Niels Kuster delivered his traditional monolog, whereby he summarizes Z43 events since the last party, targeting co-workers with witty barbs. This party’s roasting was a bit milder than in previous years, leading to speculation that Niels may be softening with age.

The fortunate crowd was blessed with perfect weather, as sunshine bathed the outdoor areas, allowing guests to enjoy the first half of the festivities under the open sky with a stunning view of the Lake of Zurich.

A massive and heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to this extremely special event, and, in particular, to the organizing team for their achievement in creating an unforgettable night.
