However, Magdeburg allowed the currents of time to take it into a new future full of possibilities; the city was reconstructed and a particular importance was attached to the maintenance, care and preservation of cultural goods. In Magdeburg, you can also follow the footsteps of many famous personalities such as Germany's air pioneer Hans Grade and his first attempts to fly, or Martin Luther who revolutionized the world, to name only a few.

HOST CITY

Magdeburg (East Germany) is about to welcome and to host for the second time the official Beauty Queens from all continents!

This year, the Miss Intercontinental Pageant will be aired once more from the Maritim Hall at the Maritim Hotel in the "Conference City Magdeburg". The Conference Office of the Magdeburg Marketing GmbH is dedicated to promote the capital city of Saxony-Anhalt as a high quality meeting and conference venue.

However, Magdeburg allowed the currents of time to take it into a new future full of possibilities; the city was reconstructed and a particular importance was attached to the maintenance, care and preservation of cultural goods. In Magdeburg, you can also follow the footsteps of many famous personalities such as Germany's air pioneer Hans Grade and his first attempts to fly, or Martin Luther who revolutionized the world, to name only a few.

"With no doubts we will have another great time, as especially our partner, the Maritim Hotel Magdeburg with its fantastic facilities will make our stay memorable"


says a speaker of the production office today.

It will be the second time that an international finale of this caliber will take place in the state Saxony Anhalt. We are all looking forward to a marvelous show on December 4th.

HISTORY

THE EARLY YEARS



From the tribal villages of Kenya to war torn Croatia and the canals of the Netherlands, young, ambitious women have dreamed of wearing the crown. People from all over the globe have been fascinated with the idea of beautiful, confident women competing for the title of MISS INTERCONTINENTAL. While the sash and crown have become pop culture mainstays, the MISS INTERCONTINENTAL event has grown to become an ultimate show and icon of female beauty and success.

The world has changed a lot in those nearly 40 year and Miss Intercontinental has mirrored those changes. Titleholders have gone on to high-profile careers in government, business, finance, film and fashion. These are women of power and grace, commitment and intelligence, style and substance.

The internationally-recognized MISS INTERCONTINENTAL Pageant marks 2014 the 43rd anniversary, which began in 1971 as concurrent event on the island of Aruba. Starting as Teen Pageant, it became directly an annual event after it attracted strong television ratings following its debut in Oranjestad, Aruba. End of the 70's the Pageant moved abroad to many other exotic places. Some past MISS INTERCONTINENTAL Pageant sites include Cartagena; Colombia; Berlin; Germany; Huangshan; China; Mahe; Seychelles Islands;

Minsk; Belarus and Nassau the Bahamas. The Miss Intercontinental has become the UN of glamour and beauty. Well known as as showcase for the world's most poised, stunning women. So it's hard to believe that the pageant started in 1971 as a promotional event for the tourism in Aruba. Thirty-five women, dressed in one-piece red bathing suits, vied for the crown that day in Oranjestad, Aruba. During the two weeks leading up to the big competition, they experienced the most wonderful beaches, the exquisite food and real jet set.

The number of contestants who vie for the most expensive crown of all pageants every year has skyrocketed to over seventy and year after year, Miss Intercontinental continues to remind us of the glorious beauty of diversity.
