What the exhibitors say…

  • “The trade fair is ‘small and exclusive’ and that’s exactly what makes it a relevant and extremely efficient industry gathering. When we’re here, our focus shifts away from container-based business. We primarily come here to order products in smaller volumes, ones we can re-order ex warehouse throughout the season. As a specialist retailer, this allows me to discover a whole host of outstanding products that complement my core range. This is what makes visiting the trade fair so exciting for us.”

  • “The new dates at the beginning of September are an excellent option, allowing us to offer our specialist retailers a service-led and efficient business platform. The compact nature of the event, its wide-ranging services and value for money make it a fantastic and effective industry format. We believe the Stern brand is still very well placed here.”

  • “solpuri serves the premium outdoor living sector. The new timing of gardiente enables us to prepare properly for the next season together with our domestic and increasingly also our international customers from the specialist retail trade. Another favourable aspect is that, by early September, we already have a good idea of how the ending season has gone which means that early orders can be completed both individually and on-point.”

  • “There are very few trade fairs that are organised so completely with the customer in mind. In our view, that and the fact that gardiente targets relevant suppliers, especially from the premium segment, help to make it a retail-focused format and a must-attend event for our industry.”

  • “gardiente brings the industry together. The fact that you have time at gardiente night to talk to people is good for the industry. It’s almost like being part of a family. The atmosphere here gives you time to tackle things properly. You’re not rushing from stand to stand, or from hall to hall, so you can focus and pay more attention to detail.”

  • “gardiente is a bit like an industry gathering. You have the chance to chat to colleagues in the business. The visitors take a real interest in everything and take time to have proper in-depth conversations. I’d say this typifies the fair. Because it’s small and intimate and everyone has time to talk and engage with each other. You can tell the organisers think about how to make the event even better every year. Everyone is highly motivated and does their absolute best. We’ll definitely be back again next year.”

  • “This is an important expo for us as a manufacturer because it enables us to approach our customers and unveil our new products early on. The sooner we know that people like what we’re doing, the sooner we can start planning production volumes. And that, in turn, is important for guaranteeing availability throughout the season.”
