Victoria Tishina (the owner and creative director of TM "Vedunya", St. Petersburg, Russia)
We feel interest to our products, as our price category competitive with goods from Poland or Italy. Buyers already think about moving to made-in-Russia garments. We are going to meet them: put forward an offer to work for the realization of a monthly report with a large percentage of the return and exchange of goods. In general, the Tradefair, as expected, has gone accordingly with our needs.

Vadim Alikhanov (director of "OVAL" Company, Minsk, Byelorussia):
Compared with recent years the situation has much improved. There are new wholesalers from Saint-Petersburg and Leningrad region. The number of useful contacts has increased a lot. And that is the most important thing at the exhibition.

Michael Skidanenko (CEO TM "JKT", St. Petersburg, Russia)
The main idea of the exhibition, in my opinion, should not be changed. Let it remains wholesale and retail at the same time. But it is necessary to pay more attention to the retail section. Wholesalers immediately see the attitude of the retail customers to one’s production and make cooperation decisions much faster. In this case, there will be more such companies as our one.

Dmitry Larionov (managing director of «CheCheLYKA» company, Belgorod, Russia):
We have come at this exhibition for the first time. I believe that we continue to come to St. Petersburg because we have found new customers, including those who have a store chain. We did a lot of contracts on different sized rows and large sums.
