at the famous "Paulaner Biergarten".
With this in mind the delegates took a short walk to the famous Paulaner Biergarten to enjoy some of Bavaria’s finest beer and meet local vendors of the host street paper, BISS.
"It was a great evening," Andreas from Die Jerusalemmer (Germany) said. "I had good conversations with my street paper colleagues, we had an instant connection."
Aaron Israelson, Editor-in-Chief of Faktum in Sweden, agrees that INSP brings people together: "It makes you feel like you're part of something bigger. INSP is especially important for smaller street papers in developing countries."

Paulaner is one of Munich’s oldest breweries. Paulaner monks have been brewing beer here for over 300 years, so you can bet they’re pretty good at it! Delegates also enjoyed traditional Bavarian food such as ‘Schweinshaxn’, ‘Lebarkas’, and ‘Obatza’.
During dinner delegates met some of BISS’s vendors. Some of the vendors with foreign roots were happy to talk to street paper members from their home countries.

In 2006 BISS bought a plot of land at a local graveyard to ensure long-term vendors received a proper burial when they died. It is clear to see that BISS epitomize the street paper principal that the vendor must be at the centre of all efforts.
