Echos

The STYL trade fair was successful for us. It brought us contacts to distributors, which were interested in working with our brand, and also to boutique owners from both the Czech and Slovak Republic, which liked our collection. At the first go it was perfect, we are satisfied.
David Cernousek, sales manager, Frank Walder, Germany

This year we continue in building our contacts with customers. We took part in the fashion shows and we were very pleased that the Dutch fashion specialist Ellen Haeser noticed us in Brno and selected our designs for her lecture on current trends.
Yevgenia Trunilina, marketing director, LEVEL-PRO, Russia

There are many of our customers coming to KABO, we can meet them and present all the innovations to them. We have been exhibiting here for eight years. As a wholesaler, we mainly deal with stores with healthy children's footwear and leather haberdashery.
Romana Selnerová, business representative, HAMA spol. s r. o.

We are attending KABO for the third time, we meet new buyers from the Czech Republic and Slovakia here. The fair is also important for us because we are here to find out what the Czech and Slovak market likes.
Jana Králíčková, business representative, Bundgaard, Denmark

This is my first time in Brno and this fair is a new environment for me. I like the variety of brands that are here, and I am pleased with the fashion show I was invited to participate in as a winner of the competition organized by ANDE, the Association for New and Young Spanish Designers.
Laura Manuela Sanchez Sanz, designer, Spain

I started my career at these fashion fairs, and so STYL is a matter of the heart for me. The STYL fair helped me in the beginning, as a fresh graduate, I received awards, I was a member of the jury, I had fashion shows, and it was the top fashion event of the Czech Republic for me. That's how I feel it and I love it here.
Lada Vyvialová, designer, LADA fashion

Our company has been exhibiting at the KABO trade fair for many years, presenting both the Italian branded handbags we import as well as our Facebag brand. This year we have at least ten new designs of our own production.
Jakub Závorka, company manager, UNIDAX

This year we have started with a whole sale, that is why we came to the fair to make new contacts with shop with Children's Shoes and so on. KABO was a right place for us and the participation was beneficial definitely. As a whole we assess the fair positively, our expectations were met.
Jiří Strýček, sales manager, Zdravý batoh (Beckmann brand)

The STYL fair definitely has its place here. The Czech retail needs it, and garment manufacturers should be presented here. I was twice awarded the Gold Hanger at STYL as early as in the 1990’s. I am very glad of the Person of the Year award and I am proud of it, I perceive it as an award for our whole company.
Otakar Petráček, Chairman of the Board of Directors, MILETA a. s.

I returned to the STYL fair after fifteen years. I went to Brno without specific expectations, rather with openness to new contacts and people. I met many kind faces here, the buyers and direct customers came to see us, so everything is fine and how it should be.
Karin Tomaškovičová, designer, KARIN POYEL, Slovakia
