Question referred

Does an off-premises contract within the meaning of Article 2(8)(c) of Directive 2011/83/EU, 1 with the consequence of entailing a right of withdrawal pursuant to Article 9 of the directive, arise if a trader at a trade fair who is in or in front of a sales stand that is deemed to constitute business premises within the meaning of Article 2(9) of the directive solicits a consumer who is standing in the aisle in front of the sales stand in an exhibition hall at a consumer trade fair without communicating with the trader, and the contract is subsequently concluded in the sales stand?
