When asked about the results of the autumn fair 2022, the representatives of the fairground do not walk around the bush. “Clearly, there has been a sharp drop in attendance, indicate Karl Saguet and Karl Jardon, head of the September celebrations committee in Thionville. It’s complicated for us, it’s also complicated for visitors who, as we have heard, are limiting their leisure budget, particularly due to rising energy prices. Even in Thionville, our company feels this general climate. “
