The November Minerals Brno exhibition was visited by 4,912 paying visitors.

 Exhibition specialisation and supporting programme

The conception of the Minerals Brno exhibition keeps defining the specialised orientation of the exhibition. This was mainly enabled by all the supporting activities– the exhibition dedicated to the most interesting localities in Slovakia and the prize competition for visitors. We wish to thank RNDr. Luďek Kráčmar, Radek Votava, the company e-gems.eu, Jan Čermák, Lukái Křesin, Jan Hovorka and Petr Magdík for taking part in the preparation of the specialist exhibition and for lending exhibits from their collections for the supporting exhibition. Thus, the visitors had a chance to see the variety of Slovak minerals. The he exhibition dedicated to the most interesting localities in Slovakia was complemented by an exhibition of fluorites, chalcedonies and dolomites on loan from the collection of Petr Magdík.


 Prize competition for the visitors

Thanks to the provided prizes, the visitors showed a great interest in the competition. A total of 43 prize winners were drawn from the correct answers. The organisers wish to thank all exhibitors who provided the prizes: RNDr. Luďek Kráčmar, Petr Zajíček from TOP GEO, Jan Kynický from TOP MINERALS, Edita Luklová, Gerda Odehnalová, Monika Tóthová, Petr Mošna, Rudolf Staňek, Michael Plecitý, Alena Horká, Miloš Ferdus, Richard Blížkovský, Josef Podhajský and Golden Spring.
