Diashow Open House 2013
Cropp, Hamburg

  
 

The Open House on Juni 01, 2013
This year the preparations for the Open House were really turbulent. Good business hampered the preparations
as every year. And then the weather changes. The key presenter cancellations due to illness shortly before.
The uncertainty as to whether all of our customers, suppliers, friends and friends will participate.
Yes, we were optimistic, and so it happened. Visitors filled the halls, surrounded the demonstrators
 and brought much good mood. That was beautiful!
At this point, we thank all participants for this successful e
vent.
