“For us, gardiente is the ideal platform for future-critical discussions between exhibitors and specialist retail partners, at a price that represents the perfect balance in terms of value for money.
We are aiming for a broad collaboration across all reputable brand suppliers and we look forward to a focused stream of visitors at this outstanding industry event.”
Joachim Strobel, Managing Director, BEST FREIZEITMÖBEL GmbH
“For ZEBRA, gardiente combines all the factors that are relevant to us. The presence of ‘everyone who is anyone’ as far as the reputable brands are concerned guarantees some remarkably high quality discussions. Now that the fair is back to its early point in the year, all the key decisions can be sorted out in a pleasant atmosphere of wellbeing. Continuous interaction, including that of the organised industry dialogue, is another distinguishing feature of the event. We are convinced that the concept will generate a positive response among visitors and make gardiente a success for all. ZEBRA feels it is in good hands at Wallau.”
Gerhard Beßler, Managing Director, ZEBRA Group GmbH
“As exhibitors at gardiente, we can have direct and active involvement in the design of the fair. The concept on offer is coherent, and on top of that, gardiente-night provides an industry gathering that can be used for networking.”
Jörg Sommer, Managing Director, 4 Seasons Outdoor GmbH
“The aim is to establish a qualified trade fair for the relevant outdoor-living products (furniture, BBQ, sunshades, decorative products) at which competence, professionalism and efficiency are combined with fun and personality, and for which exhibitors and visitors will require only a small budget.
Join us to strengthen the right platform!”
Florian Mesch, Managing Director & shareholder, solpuri GmbH
“As exhibitors right from the start, we continue to be convinced by the format of gardiente and the overall package. The simple and comprehensive package represents a compact and competent trade fair format for both the retail trade and the exhibitors. Short distances, opportunities for conversation and networking, and time for intense discussions with relevant suppliers in the market – these are just a few of the reasons to visit gardiente and factors that make it a must-have on the 2023 trade fair calendar.”
Matthias Meier, Director, Sieger GmbH
“The packed diary of events next season means that as exhibitors we are going to have to focus our efforts. For our buyers, too, a clear positioning creates transparency and helps us prepare for the season efficiently and in the best way. What is more, the gardiente concept offers an outstanding, innovative environment, and one with which we all feel very comfortable.”
Jürgen Frank Brackmann, Managing Director, STERN GmbH & Co. KG
This is our first time here and we’re very satisfied with the fair. In terms of quality, the visitors were very interesting to us. Everyone is friendly and as far as organisation is concerned, everything was great. We’d come back.
Francisco Illán, Export Manager, Musola
This is now our second time at gardiente. We started last year with our new Outdoor Collection and were very satisfied with the outcome. And the feedback from the customers that we picked up has been very positive. We think the organisation of the fair is brilliant, it’s friendly, and the food and drink are just right, which is also part of the overall arrangements. We at W. SCHILLIG, as newcomers to the sector, feel very comfortable here.
Daniel Dinkel, Northern Sales Manager, W. Schillig outdoor GmbH
At gardiente the retailers and manufacturers get together at a high level, in a great atmosphere, to discuss innovations, to meet up again, to get to know new people, and to strengthen partnerships. At the right time and the right place for us.
Markus Jungbluth, Managing Director, Hanton GmbH & Co. KG
We’ve got to know a great network of retail colleagues and exhibitors. We’ve met some really terrific, interesting potential customers here, had some great discussions and are grateful for having been looked after so incredibly well. We’re looking forward to coming back.
Felix Mandel, Sales, Le Feu & Company GmbH
I must say, we’ve been able to make some very good contacts here because there were lots of specialist customers attending that we’d never have reached through our own in-house exhibition. Gardiente is an interesting, attractive and friendly fair, and it’s well organised.
Carsten Hustermeier, Sales Manager/Deputy Sales Director, Musterring International Josef Höner GmbH & Co. KG
It a really nice environment and you’re well looked after here by all the staff. We’re very happy here and I think at gardiente you can make a lot of new contacts, or at least we certainly have. This definitely won’t be the last time we come.
