Truma cancels attendance at Caravan Salon 2020

Corona pandemic

Jun 17, 2020

Due to the corona pandemic, Truma will not be attending Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf this year. "This decision was not taken lightly and was made after careful consideration", explains CEO Alexander Wottrich. 

Health is our top priority

"The health and safety of our employees and customers is our top priority. The comprehensive hygiene and distancing rules at the Düsseldorf fair protect exhibitors and visitors as best as possible. Nevertheless, we cannot justify attending Caravan Salon as a result of our duty of care as a company", explains Wottrich. 

Trade fair objectives not feasible

Furthermore, as a supplier Truma does not sell products at trade fairs. Our focus is on meeting and exchanging with OEMs, wholesalers and dealers and advising end customers – all of these discussions benefit from face-to-face contact. "This would be difficult to do so given the present circumstances. With this in mind, it is not purposeful for us to exhibit at Caravan Salon. We will of course continue to be there for our customers and business partners and are increasingly interacting with them via digital channels. We hope to be able to welcome them to the Truma booth in Düsseldorf next year in the accustomed manner."

In addition to Düsseldorf, Truma has also cancelled its participation in other trade fairs such as Parma and Paris for this year.
