Also on board: TruckScout24-brand ambassador and darts world champion Michael van Gerwen. During the interview the darts superstar gave insights into his everyday life from tournaments, press appointments and hotel rooms. However, he wasn’t only available for personal conversations and photos, but also took part in the exclusive #MvGChallenge. Three guests got the unique chance to defeat Michael van Gerwen in a round of darts and win a trip to the Darts World Championships in London. Despite the small advantage of twice as many attempts as the dart champion, all participants failed to win. Since it was close enough, the best challenger received two tickets for the upcoming Darts World Championship.

However, the networking event wasn’t only interactive, but also and above all very informative. The main topics were the future plans of the two online marketplaces and the individual advice of the participating dealers: What should the perfect advertisement look like and how should I handle purchase inquiries in the most effective way? TruckScout24 Managing Director Boris Danne was especially pleased about the personal meeting of Wilhelm Gillessen (Wilhelm Gillessen Verwertungen), Wilco Vink (Hulleman Trucks B.V.), Maarten van Laarhoven (Top Trucks B.V.), Didi Hermkens and the Bergs-Krijn family (Leo Krijn Trucks B.V.).
