PITTI UOMO 91: EXHIBITORS' POINT OF VIEW

TOMMY HILFIGER - Tommy Hilfiger, founder and designer
We were very excited about presenting our brand at Pitti Uomo, a fair that represents a very thrilling moment for me: perfect for celebrating the energy and spirit of the menswear industry in the beautiful, historic setting of the city of Florence.
 
WP LAVORI IN CORSO - Cristina Calori, founder and president
An excellent edition with great attendance and very high quality of the contacts called in.  It is increasingly less a fair, in the sense of a sales platform, and more and more a 360° fashion rendezvous, a showcase for learning and making oneself better known.
 
HERNO SPA - Claudio Marenzi, President and CEO
An excellent edition. There was always a very high level of attendance at our stand and of great quality.  As usual the buyer presence was particularly diversified: a lot of Europeans in the early days, then the big oriental and American groups.  I was favorably impressed by the inauguration of the fair in terms of the quantity and quality of those present as well as the remarkable level of the content.
 
LARDINI - Andrea Lardini, President
A more than positive edition marked by the growth of the Asian market and the recovery of the US one.  In every corner of the fair there was an atmosphere of great optimism which makes us anticipate an improvement in business for Made in Italy in 2017 despite our country’s continuing uncertain economic trend.

CLARKS ORIGINALS - Andrew Rogers, Group Product Director

Pitti Uomo is a showcase and driver of business at the same time, one of the best fair events in the world.  At this edition we noted the strong growth of the Asian market which is very important for us and, in general, the extraordinary participation of members of the trade, including a lot of qualified journalists which contributed to making the general atmosphere of the fair exciting and positive.  And this can only gratify our decision to exhibit in Florence.
