Efficient match making networking

The eighteen match making events held at CHIC were highly appreciated by both exhibitors and visitors. These shopping meetings were organised for, among others: Reserved, House &Cropp and Sinsay from Poland, F&F from South Korea, Linus from Germany, UR with its brand Benlai (one of China's most famous vertical fashion brand) or herland (Chinese online brand) and others.

Mr SULTAN ADEL KOTB from Movie Star, USA confirmed: "The exhibitors were all very well prepared and presented their products to me efficiently, I could not only directly overview the new designs but also immediately get an impression of the new materials and technologies". This was also underlined by Ms CRISTINA CORSINI of Sede Legal Joyce from Italy: " The match making made my visit very sustainable and economical after CHIC researched exactly the right suppliers based on my sourcing needs. I was looking for men's shirts, women's skirts, dresses and coats. Suppliers' fits are trimmed with subtle alterations to fit less than perfect body shapes, which is exactly what I'm looking for." Likewise, the efficiency was praised by Mr DIAZ HERNANDEZ AGUSTIN, SIGLOXXI IMPORTADORA DE REGALOS from Spain: "Match making allowed me to meet many good suppliers in one morning and use the afternoon to visit the fair." Mr DIEGO FERNANDO LOPEZ SUAREZ from Euro Leder Star GmbH: "I was mainly looking for coats, padded jackets and Eco-Friendly furs and I must say that I saw many good offers."
