A statement from Jeroen van Hooff, CEO of Jaarbeurs Utrecht, the organiser of Dutch camping show Kampeer & Caravan, said: “From our many years of collaboration with KCI for the Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs, we have come to know Hans as an extremely motivated, committed, and optimistic person. Due to his creativity and connecting capacity in the industry, he has made a major contribution to the success of the Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs in recent years. We will miss him greatly.

“We wish his family, friends and colleagues strength to bear this great loss.”
