German term or phrase:Vertretung
Taken from a company magazine:
"Zudem informieren wir Sie über Veranstaltungen, auf denen GHP vertreten ist und die FIRMA ausrichtet, wie zum Beispiel den Kongress p-dialog in Düsseldorf oder eine Präsentation der Wirtschaftsregion Bamberg-Forchheim in der Bayerischen Vertretung in Berlin"
I'm confused about a Bavarian Vertretung in Berlin. My client explained that it's an office but that still doesn't make sense to me. How can a presentation be given in the Bavarian office in Berlin? Even I know that Berlin isn't in Bavaria!
Explanation: The state of Bavaria has an office in Berlin that represents the state's policies and interests vis-a-vis the federal government. I assume all German states have such offices in Berlin. The link provides all the necessary information. Bamberg-Forchheim is in Bavaria and the presentation presumably serves to generate economic activity/jobs in/for that region.

Explanation: It's the "Bavarian Representation" or "Bavarian Representative Office" in Berlin. Each German "land" has its own quasi-embassy in the capital city. This one is run by the Bavarian government. There may be a better term, but either of the above should do.
