Exhibitor Testimonials

April 2017: We have been exhibiting at PERFORMANCE DAYS since the beginning because we believe the fair is absolutely a good way to meet existing customers and consolidate existing business, but also to meet new potential customers in an environment … which makes it possible to create excellent face-to- face contact with new customers.


Giorgio Cavallini
Carvico Spa

November 2016: It is our second time at PERFORMANCE DAYS - we had a very nice experience here. It’s an intimate trade show, where you are not overwhelmed by the size, by the number of people. People seem to have time. It gives you a good chance to connect with existing and potential new customers. We are going to come back next year.


Frank Bruwer
Prym Fashion Asia Pacific, China

November 2016: We’ve supported the show since its early days and we’ve really seen it grow and develop as a great place for training and education for the trade. The workshops are a great way to have an in-depth conversation with our customers around some of their challenges and hopefully ways that we can help them solve those problems and develop some new business together.


Simon Whitmarsh-Knight
Invista, Switzerland

November 2016: For us it’s always a good show: you meet the big brands and the global players from the sportswear as well from workwear market - and it’s also nice to have the leading suppliers. It’s a good opportunity to meet the full supply chain of the textile industry - and so we’re happy to be on the show.


Julian Schütz
Nilit Ltd., Israel

November 2016: We have been at PERFORMANCE DAYS for the last 4 years. PERFORMANCE DAYS has been an ideal setting for us where we cannot just meet our customers and build our present and future business but also have an opportunity to meet our supply chain partners, fabric mills and garment manufacturers.


Ashwin Jaju
Drirelease, United States

April 2016: We think this fair is quite nice, because the focus is on the product, the focus is on the fabric. So all the visitors that come here are very focused - compared to other big fairs, too many people but not focused. That's why I love PERFORMANCE DAYS.


Tony Wang
Singtex, Taiwan

April 2016: It is a great oportunity to be here with the fabric community and have intimite conversations with our customers. This show, intimite by definition, it's small, it's great to sit down with folks outside the hussle of the big trade fairs which are all about beauty peagents. It's juts a great oportunity to meet folks in a really concentated setting.


Gary Smith
Polartec, USA

April 2016: PERFORMANCE DAYS enabled us to successfully introduce our eco-friendly concepts. We were able to stand out and win the Eco-Award in 2015 and with that we meet a good number of quality buyers. We enjoy returning to this show and with that we can continue to innovate.

Massimiliano Denna

May 2014: PERFORMANCE DAYS is a fair where knowledge counts, where we meet designers / product developers under good conditions for all kind of brainstorming and share the best parts of future products. More global connections are running through the show, upgrading the interest to be a part of this event. It is a strong contribution to our business and will be for a long time.


Morgan Boström

May 2014: The PERFORMANCE DAYS for us it the perfect fair to meet suppliers, to meet important customers and it’s a nice setting because it’s small you can work very well… so for us it’s just perfect to be here!


Haymo Strubel
Sympatex Technologies GmbH, Germany

May 2014: We especially like here the quiet and comfortable atmosphere, especially the timing is matching perfect for our customers. Why the timing is better? The schedule of our customers is getting earlier and earlier so the traditional exhibitions are far too late for our sales. So we think PERFORMANCE DAYS is a very right timing for us.


Steffen Meiler
Toray International Europe GmbH, Germany

May 2014: We are attending the PERFORMANCE DAYS for years (since November 2012), which is for us very interesting because special customers are here to make new developments for the next season. For us it is very important that customers from all around the world are coming here.

May 2014: We are here at PERFORMANCE DAYS displaying our range of high performance fabrics for outdoor sports and leisure.

Steve Laylock
Pertex, UK/Japan

May 2014: The start of PERFORMANCE DAYS was a decision, an idea, by Marco Weichert to have a little, concentrated exhibition for outdoor customers especially here in Germany in the right time not very close the normal or important exhibitions worldwide. We are very happy to be here, so thank you!


Enrico Banci
Pontetorto, Italy

May 2014: We have been visiting PERFORMANCE DAYS since November last year (November 2013) which we found very successful and now we’ve come back. We have been very pleased with the reception we had.

David Carter
Designer Textiles International, New Zealand

May 2014: It's really interesting for us to see how the show has been growing over the last years. It’s getting more and more international, more and more exhibitors are participating so it’s getting more relevant for our customers. So it’s really growing. It’s still an efficiency tool but it’s more and more becoming an acquisition and brand management tool.


Jochen Lagemann
PrimaLoft, Germany/USA

May 2014: We are here at the PERFORMANCE DAYS as we like it very much. It’s a nice, small fair and you have direct contact to your customers. It’s very international and we’re here for more than three years now and as well next year!
