Vanlife community meeting on February 2 at the ABF
The ABF invites you to the Vanlife Community Meeting on Friday, February 2. All vanlifers who would like to visit the Hanover exhibition grounds with their van and exchange ideas and network with like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere are invited. The vans can be parked in the outdoor area.
You can visit the trade fair during the day, and towards the late afternoon there will be a get-together with cool drinks and music at the beach bar (program ends at 9 pm). Catering will be provided by the Holsteiner Cook & Catering food truck with delicacies such as pulled pork and falafel. Afterwards, the vanlifers can spend the night on the open-air site.
