Travel trade card-free activity Authorisation of exemptions for the organisation of certain sales events

The travel trade card obligation does not apply if an exception within the meaning of § 55a (2) of the Industrial Code (GewO) has been granted for the offering of goods for sale on the occasion of special sales events.

The type of goods to be offered for sale should be in a certain connection to the event giving rise to the event.

The granting of the permit is at the discretion of the competent authority. It must be issued for a specific location and usually for a specific event as well as for a limited period and in writing. It can also be applied for by the organiser with effect for the providers and applies to the traders and to their employees.
