In an exclusive interview with Aboutcamp BtoB, the Managing Director of Germany’s Caravanning Industry Association (CIVD), Daniel Onggowinarso, discusses the decision to continue with the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf 2020. Here you can find an abstract of that interview.
Q: So far, we have only heard of those who are not participating in the Caravan Salon Düsseldorf (CSD) this year. But we will also tell the point of view of the many companies that have decided to participate. What will the 2020 CSD be like?A: One thing is clear, though, the Caravan Salon 2020 will be different. Like in so many aspects of our lives, the pandemic related experiences of the past 12 weeks will also have their impact on the show. However, rest assured that Messe Düsseldorf, in close and constant consultation with all relevant authorities, have developed a sustainable hygiene and protection concept in the interests of all concerned.Over the past weeks people have matured in their way of adopting certain precautions and newly learned behaviors into their daily life. Based on this and given the fact that more and more restrictions have already been lifted with more easements to come soon, I believe that when the gates will finally open on September 4th, visitors and exhibitors will be rewarded with a great show. Bear in mind, we still have a quarter year to go!And even though we regret the decision of individual companies not to participate this year, the Caravan Salon will still offer a large variety of products across all categories with no vehicle type missing. You can be sure that everything will be done to make the leading caravanning show once again a great experience.
