ON JANUARY 21ST SOURCEBOOK AND KAHRAMANMARAŞ CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY ORGANIZED A FULL-DAY EVENT, MATCHING 7 MANUFACTURERS FROM TURKEY WITH 10 GERMAN FASHION BRANDS, RETAILERS AND AGENCIES.
We started the day by taking our Turkish delegates to meet up with Anne-Kathrin Berends for a personalized tour through the concept shopping mall Bikini Berlin, its outstanding architecture housing a number of unique retail concepts. At LNFA Shop and Agency we met up with owner and manager Sevil Uguz, who kindly treated our foreign guests to some interesting market insights and a Q & A in their mother tongue.
After an informal lunch in an inspiring milieu at the forward-thinking restaurant Super, we moved on through the bustling Berlin shopping district and commenced the curated meeting sessions at Residenz Hotel. After welcoming the 23 Turkish and German attendees with refreshments and a round of introductions, the diverse businesses were matched up according to their individual needs. The wide range of manufacturers from Turkey included producers of formal men’s wear, shirts- and blouses specialists, full-service knit-wear manufacturers and high-quality export agencies with a number of well-made reference samples to show. Both established and emerging businesses from Germany joined the meeting: Clinton, Modeinstitut Berlin, InTime Sales, Phi Berlin, 4 Hunks, Tzuji and others, providing an all-encompassing range.
Due to the great success and the positive feedback from the event, Kahramanmaraş Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Sourcebook are now organizing a return visit to the manufacturers in Turkey. If you are interested in attending, please contact Marte Hentschel: firstname.lastname@example.org
