“It’s finally open!” That was the reaction of sales representatives Henri Hendrikse, Rudie Ensing and Michel Veltman when they heard that the trade fair in Madrid wasn’t going to be cancelled again this year. From 5 to 7 October, Waterman Onions will be present at the Fruit Attraction fair, the international fair for everyone active in the fruit and vegetable sector.
Our sales reps are finally able to travel again after a year and a half of working from home, and they’ve been looking forward to it. Rudie Ensing posted his thoughts on travelling again on Waterman Onions’ social media channels – from Schiphol, appropriately enough. Henri Hendrikse: “I’m mainly looking forward to talking to customers again.” For sales rep Michel Veltman, the trade fair is one of the first times he’ll be able to meet his customers in person. “We’ve mainly had contact over the telephone, WhatsApp and e-mail until now.” That’s because Michel started working at Waterman just as the coronavirus pandemic hit the country. “My colleagues have told me that the fair in Madrid is one of the fastest-growing fairs.” That’s why Waterman has joined with partners to create a surprising stand for Fruit Attraction. Henri Hendrikse has a hint for us all: “Pay attention to the colour black: that’s all I can say for now and enjoy the surprise!”
