Benefits for exhibitors at h+h cologne
At h+h cologne 2023, the top decision-makers will meet and talk to purchasing managers, industry experts and representatives of the specialist trade.
The international trade fair for handicrafts and hobbies is thus the world's largest order and most important business platform for the textile handicrafts sector. From 31 March to 2 April 2023, trade visitors will not only be offered a comprehensive spectrum of innovations for sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidery and handicrafts - a first-class event and workshop programme is geared to the needs of the trade, highlights the diversity of the sector and provides trade visitors from all over the world with a constant stream of new ideas for business success.
The motto for all this in 2023 has already been decided: "be creative. be unique." is the motto on the stage and at the exhibition stands. Among other things, it will be about how you can optimise your business by being unique compared to others, which creative ideas make the handicrafts industry innovative again and again and how "uniqueness" can score points with good arguments against "fast fashion". In short, it will be colourful, creative and individual. And that is really something to look forward to in the current times.
