Ivo Pūķis, Director of Burdas Salons (Latvia)
We have been showcasing our products and catwalking our collections since the first time this fair was announced. A number of successful partnerships originated right here. “Baltic Fashion & Textile Riga” is the best place to meet interesting people looking for new cooperation or development opportunities. The presence of other business partners and rivals here make us to take a firmer grip and start looking for new and creative approaches.

Ramazon Tepe, Director General of Oysas Tekstil (Turkey)
Without advertising and marketing it is impossible to find customers, so I would like to recommend other manufacturers to come and get acquainted with the Baltic market. The days we spent at the fair were successful; we managed to establish new contacts with Baltic wholesalers. If cooperation succeeds, it would be great to come back here and show greater product diversity.

Nina Lanovenko, Organiser of the Ukrainian national collective stand (Ukraine)
There is a growing interest in trading with the Baltic countries among Ukrainian manufacturers and distributors, and where else to go, if not to “Baltic Fashion & Textile Riga 2016”?! It is the most successful and largest exhibition in the Baltic States. All members of the Ukrainian national collective stand were taking part in this fair for the first time and they were extremely happy because they managed to establish contacts with buyers. We reached the set goals; therefore, we will definitely take part again in “Baltic Fashion & Textile Riga” next year!

Isabel Barres, Commercial Director of Aznar Innova (Spain)
We are in the textile industry for 20 years already and, since 2004, we also sell pyjamas, underwear and swimwear. Since pyjama wearing is not common in the Baltic countries, we want to make it more popular. Therefore, “Baltic Fashion & Textile Riga” is the best place to do it. We took part in this fair for the second time, and we are most satisfied with results. We met here a number of clients having a great interest to start cooperation.
