CPD scores Points with Conceptual Improvements

Altered hall layout giving the fair a noticeably higher rating




Alexander Krüger :



Altered hall layout and design, more harmonious presentation overall and a clear structure at CPD contributed considerably to both exhibitors and visitors giving the fair a noticeably higher rating.

1,120 exhibitors showcased their 2007/08 Autumn/Winter collections in 13 segments. Generating particular interest was the return of numerous manufacturers (like Goldix, Lebek and Eugen Klein) from their showrooms to the exhibition centre itself. Firms with a showroom presence used their attendance in the segments 'The Room' and 'Concept 11' over the days of the fair to gain exclusive access to international buyers on the exhibition grounds and were able to win over many new customers through this. All three days of the event saw large crowds at the Fashion Gallery, the creative heart of CPD. The designers in Hall 14 presented their fashion with independent personality and uncompromising signature design: 'Mode Deluxe' whose at times unconventional touches were applauded by trade visitors.

Exhibitors in the 'Style & Signatures' segment were also highly satisfied. Trendy international labels were featured here with their progressive, high-quality presentation style. The very high numbers of visitors in the hall were the main reason for the relaxed atmosphere amongst exhibitors. An increasing number of brands from the young segment also see the Igedo Fashion Fairs Düsseldorf as a key orders and information platform.

Summing up Wolfgang May, Director of Domestic Fairs at the Igedo Company, said: "As the flagship of the Igedo Fashion Fairs CPD has confirmed its key significance as an orders platform. Stands were very busy. A very large majority of exhibitors were very satisfied with the way the fair went."

Specialist clothing retailers (72%) were by far the largest group of visitors at CPD. Volume-buying retailers as well as new types of distribution business and retail trading forms each accounted for around 10% of the visitors coming to Düsseldorf.
