For the approximately 10,000 visitors to the twelfth Morbach trade show, there was a great package of information, entertainment and lots of trade show gifts in and around the Baldenauhalle over the weekend. There was a wide range of jobs on offer at more than 40 stands, including the Trierischer Volksfreund media house.
Tattoos and bright red buckets
Very much in demand on both days was Martin Schunck from Tattoo Studio Abstract Linework. He had almost continuous clientele. Anne Petry had a gecko pricked, others preferred mountains and palm trees. The company has been around for a good year and a half. So it was time for the young entrepreneur to show the people of Morbach "the face to the name as well," he said when asked why he participates in the regional fair. The reasons of the exhibitors for the participation are varied. Some – like Café and Kino Heimat – wanted to use the opportunity to become even better known, said Doris Beyer. Ludwig Schuh from the Möbel Schuh company, which will be celebrating its 125th anniversary in two years, on the other hand, handed out plenty of bright red buckets and referred to the open sales Sunday taking place at his company at the same time.
At the Sparkasse Mittelmosel Eifel Mosel Hunsrück, Nora Horn provided information about the new construction project "Special Living in the Morbach Center" on Bernkasteler Straße and Gerberweg, while at the VR-Bank Hunsrück-Mosel everything revolved around sustainable financial investments. Car dealers showed their new models. At the booth of the media house Trierischer Volksfreund there was an allowance for the household budget, if one estimated the quantity of ducks in a container correctly. At the same time, editorial director Lars Ross and editor Ilse Rosenschild were on hand to answer questions. Sarah Sauer from the pharmacy at Oberer Markt demonstrated a new service: the automatic sorting and shrink-wrapping of medicines. The visitors liked what was on offer. "The whole event is highly interesting. There are loud high-quality stands. I am positively surprised", said Peter Tresch from Hundheim. "The trade show is a showcase of all that we have here in Morbach. We should be proud of this," Hans-Georg Gröber from Morbach was also impressed by the event.
