SUPER 9: EXHIBITORS' POINT OF VIEW

Filippo Bettanin – CellarDoor (VETTA Company
“This is our first time at Super and we can say that we are truly satisfied. We have registered many new high-quality contacts, especially at an international level. The location is perfect, the space well organised and balanced: this adds significant value as it allows the product to take centre stage”.
 
Anna Bateman – Max’n’chester
“It is a really great show. For us it has been a fundamental contact point with the European and Italian markets as well as with the international press. We have taken orders and collected interesting contacts with buyers from Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Taiwan and from Asia in general. As far as the organisation is concerned, the location is strategic and the Pitti Immagine staff definitely deserve praise, they have been readily available and prepared to resolve all the unexpected events. We will definitely be back next season”.
 
Aldo Acchiardi – Harris Wharf London
“The pulse of a show can be measured by the turnout of buyers, and all our top buyers were here. I have met excellent buyers from Korea, Russia, and Italy, and I saw important Swiss clients again. In just the first two days we made 80 contacts and took many orders. We are really satisfied, also by the organisation of the show and its central location”.
 
Gennaro Dargenio – Circolo 1901
“It is a really well-organised show, which edition after edition is growing in stature. In the past three days, we noted significant turnout of buyers and press. Apart from the valid selection of labels, it’s in the right circuit of shows and events during the fashion week, something which encourages many of the buyers. We met with our clients and new ones too: there is a great energy here and I am pleased that my clients also noticed this difference compared to the other shows. The layout is very well planned: open spaces, well-proportioned stands, all-in-all very user friendly”.
 
Lucie Bourreau and Bapan Dutta – MII
“This is our first time at Super and the outcome is decidedly positive. We have met many buyers from Italy – a market we are really interested in – and also many from Asian countries, such as Japan and Korea… The Pitti Immagine signature, clearly visible in the selection and layout, is a guarantee and the salon is very well organised, easy to reach and central. Even the display of the collections has been incredibly well structured”.
 
Matteo Gioli – Superduper Hats
“Our feedback is decidedly positive. It is the first time for us here – even though we are familiar with the Pitti Immagine shows, having participated in Pitti Uomo – and we have collected many new and interesting contacts from international buyers and this is fundamental. We had already made some appointments and we met others here, we saw Asian buyers, many from Korea: it is a show with a high International profile. The location is fantastic, with a linear and functional layout. It has been a good experience, useful for our business.”
 
 

SUPER TALENTS

 
Takara Wong (Thailand)
This was my first time at Super and in Milano and it has been a really fantastic experience. The atmosphere is full of energy. The layout has been designed in the best possible manner both for us exhibitors and for the buyers; you can sense the overall level of satisfaction. We have initiated interesting contacts and taken orders from both Italian and foreign buyers, for example Spanish ones; the European market is very important for us.
 
 

MORE DASH: EYE ON THE EAST

 
Tatyana Barkova and Maria Kaufman of TATMAN (Ukraine)

The exhibition has gone really well! Super has allowed us to form new and interesting contacts, both in the markets where we already work and in countries such as Italy, in particular, the Milan area. We have already closed some orders and we couldn't ask for more. We are truly happy with the results and we certainly be back for future editions.
