Internationale Schuh- und Lederwarenmesse
Why be in Brno in August?
It is well known of the last years’ experience that both Czech and foreign retailers and wholesalers are seriously interested in good quality Czech and Slovak products, which might enrich their assortment of goods. Therefore the organizers decided to highlight collections by companies from the Czech Republic and Slovakia (on the fair’s website, in printed matters for visitors, in specialized magazines and media). Don’t hesitate to present your brand to retailers and wholesalers in Brno. Show everybody what will be in next year, make yourself be visible and let your qualities shine!
The International Fashion Fair STYL is where supply and demand of the fashion industry from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and other Central and Eastern European countries is concentrated.
New contacts and contracts
Most of the visitors attend the fairs with the aim of establishing new contacts and signing contracts. In February 2011 the number of deals closed on both sides, the visitors’ and the exhibitors‘, increased.
Popular section Lingerie & Beachwear
The attraction of August fairs is traditionally increased by the extended selection in the sections of lingerie & night-wear and swimwear, including beachwear, which reflects the cycle of creating collections in this section. In August 2010 this section enjoyed the greatest interests from both visitors and media.
Fashion shows will increase the attraction of your brand
Presenting your collection on the catwalks in the halls will attract the attention of traders to your brand.
