Burstner and LMC announce they are not exhibiting at CMT 2021

Bürstner and LMC have announced they will not be exhibiting at the CMT fair in Stuttgart in January 2021. Both brands say this is a group-wide decision by the Erwin Hymer Group (EHG) to continue to not participate in all major shows and events, however, there has not been any official announcement from EHG itself regarding this yet.

Bodo Diller, Brand Manager at LMC, said: “The health of our customers, employees and trading partners remains our top priority. The corona crisis requires unchanged social distance rules and hygiene regulations – even beyond the turn of the year. As a result, there is no informal atmosphere for information, advice and buying. We see this as a fundamental requirement for an inspiring brand experience. We are therefore sticking to the decision we made in May and until further notice will not participate in major events and trade fairs. ”

Bodo Diller is optimistic about the caravanning season 2021: “Even in the difficult year 2020 our customers in motorhomes, caravans and camper vans have a relaxed and safe vacation. These positive experiences are reflected in the sales figures over the past few months. I am convinced that the enthusiasm for caravanning and slow travel will continue to increase.”

Thorsten Erhardt, Bürstner Marketing Manager, commented: “We are convinced that the enthusiasm for our form of vacation and travel continue to develop positively, and we are taking appropriate measures in these special times even without a trade fair. We are already working hard on the launch of the many new products from Bürstner.”

This assessment is also supported by a survey carried out throughout Europe in July / August on behalf of the Erwin Hymer Group. It showed that caravanning is among the most popular forms of vacation in the Corona summer 2020 and was able to increase by around 20 percent compared to 2019.
