HOPPE cancels attendance at FENSTERBAU FRONTALE 2022
HOPPE will not be attending FENSTERBAU FRONTALE this spring. The company announced this in September 2021. “After careful consideration of the pros and cons, we decided not to exhibit at the FENSTERBAU FRONTALE 2022 in-person trade fair,” says Ivor Ng, HOPPE Group Marketing Manager.
“The trade fair thrives on intensive contact with customers and the personal experience of and interaction with the exhibits. We believe that such a full-on trade fair experience would not be possible under the likely conditions. We also believe that the remaining health risk for our employees and customers is still too high – although visible successes can be seen in the fight against the pandemic and the Nuremberg trade fair has introduced a comprehensive hygiene concept.
FENSTERBAU FRONTALE remains a significant industry date and other companies may assess the situation differently. We are also looking forward to meeting our customers and showcasing our innovations at the HOPPE stand at future editions of the trade fair. Until then, we will continue to offer our customers the opportunity to experience our company bilaterally and increasingly via digital services.”
