Exhibitors' comments on Creativeworld 2016

“No-one should ever think that they know everything and can do everything, for the sector is like a living organism and is constantly changing. That is why we have also taken part in some of the workshops, the award ceremonies and the demonstrations, in order to see what the major concerns in the marketplace are.”

Jörg Kolodzick, International Marketing Manager, Edding

“The target group that we want to reach is able to find us here – we see that from the attendance levels. And we are increasingly meeting customers from other countries in Europe – people whom you can normally only reach with some effort on the telephone.”

Kai Lebrecht, Managing Director, Decohobby

“Creativeworld is extremely well organised, even by comparison with other trade fairs. There is a sense of really successful cooperation and the atmosphere is really good.”

Els van de Burgt, Creative Director, Elizabeth Craft Designs

“Our objective is to find more retail outlets and that is exactly what we have achieved at Creativeworld: wholesalers and retailers from Kuwait, Israel, Iceland – the list gets longer each time! We have met a lot of new people.”

Lou Ann Gleason, Co-Founder, Gelli Arts

“This is our first Creativeworld – the first trade fair that we have exhibited at for years. We are in no doubt; we want to come again next year. Even on the first day or so, we were getting some very good feedback.”

Marco Pizzi, Sales Manager, ITAL G.E.T.E.

“Creative activities are still important, but the challenge continues to be the structural changes that are taking place – traditional retail is disappearing and, whilst we are getting good results, the sector as a whole has got to keep on going forward and being innovative.”

Stephan Rayher, Managing Director Rayher Hobby GmbH

“The first few days were well attended; there are about 80 percent national and 20 percent international customers here, but it is the important ones who have come. I was surprised to see so many Russians, and there were a lot from the Middle East here too.”

Florian Hawranek, Managing Director, Business, Kreul
