  • „I believe – and this is decisive for gardiente – that coordination between production and trade is becoming increasingly goal oriented. In the future therefore, orders directly following the pre-order can be written earlier than in previous years. In my opinion, gardiente will gain significance at least for the German market thanks to its optimal timing.“

    Jürgen Frank Brackmann · CEO, Stern GmbH & Co. KG
  • “We’re really delighted. Now that we’ve been to this trade fair, we see no need to go anywhere else this season because all the suppliers who are of any interest to us are here. So, from our point of view, it’s been fantastic.”

    Jürgen Schäfer · Managing Director of Schäfer HolzLand GmbH · Oberstenfeld
  • We’ve come to gardiente for the first time this year. The trade fair is clearly set out and the exhibitors have far more time to talk to you. This isn’t the case at other events where you literally have to queue. At gardiente we were also able to gain an insight into the sector really quickly – we now know what we have to sell and what new elements we should add to our range – and we now have time to plan it all properly. When I go to other fairs, it all happens that little bit too late. The garden furniture season’s already been and gone. All the suppliers we work with are here as well.”

    Luise Vieröther · Managing Director of Holz & Gartenfachmarkt Erichmühle GmbH · Wendelstein
  • “I’m happy because my suppliers have all come to the show. There’s a nice atmosphere that’s conducive to doing business without feeling stressed or in a hurry. In fact, I’m wondering whether I really need to go to any other trade fairs this season because I’ve pretty much managed to do everything. I came here last year. I use gardiente to see everything in the flesh. The early timing of the event suits me really well because it enables to me order and do everything else in my own time.”

    Thomas Ocken · Buyer for Möbel Buss Einrichtungshaus GmbH & Co. KG · Oldenburg
  • “I like the way everything is presented. We’re here for the first time and until now have only ever been to larger trade fairs. It’s much more personal here, and not as hectic. The service surrounding the fair is great as well. We also like its early timing because our schedule is often tight in August/ September, what with deliveries, photo shoots and everything else that needs doing. We’ve placed several orders at gardiente today. So, all I can say really is that we’re definitely coming back.”

    Barbara and Jürg Bänninger · Owners of Hunn Gartenmöbel AG · Bremgarten · Switzerland
  • “The fair is great and well laid out. In contrast to other fairs, there are no distractions which allows us visitors to focus on our own objectives and targets. Not only that, but I can find everything here that I want in our range. It’s all displayed in a compact form, the routes are short – I think it’s very pleasant here.”

    Wolfgang Kohl · Managing Director of DECOFLEX Sonnenschutzsysteme GmbH & Co KG. · Hilden
  • “We are here at gardiente for the second time. I really appreciate that all the relevant garden furniture suppliers are here. We are pleased to be able to see the entire range one next to another. The early timing of the fair is very interesting. Other fairs are often too late. In addition, smaller speciality orders are eminently possible here. The prime goal is not simply filling a 40ft container minimum order. That means we can order articles not suited to container delivery.”
