The largest contracting and sale fair of children’s products in the Czech and Slovak Republics focused on the products of the best suppliers and of hundreds of Czech and European brands in one place. The sixteenth year of the fair took place in the larger Hall V and included accompanying entertainment and educational programmes. The interest of the public was negatively influenced by worries connected to the coronavirus epidemic. Despite this, according to a preliminary estimate, approximately ten thousand visitors will have come to the Brno Exhibition Centre over the four days.
With respect to recommendations issued by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, BVV Trade Fairs Brno (Veletrhy Brno, a.s.) prepares all planned trade fairs and other events according to its 2020 exhibition calendar. The Czech health authorities have strengthened surveillance measurements in response to the international spread of the coronavirus disease. At the moment there has been no confirmed case of this virus in the Czech Republic and no extraordinary measures have been imposed by the responsible institutions to restrict or prohibit events involving the presence of larger number of participants. Some trade fair events in Germany have been postponed to a later date due to the strong participation of Asian, especially Chinese exhibitors who are currently not being granted Schengen entry visa.
The largest contracting and sales fair of its kind in the Czech Republic and Slovakia took place with the support of the Child Products Manufacturers and Importers Association for the first time ever. It was accompanied by an entertaining and educational supporting programme and the sales presentation Woman’s World. It is estimated that in the four days of the trade fair, 13,500 people visited the Brno Exhibition Grounds.
The last four days saw two of the Brno Exhibition Centre’s pavilions bustling with energetic trading activity, accompanied by an entertaining and educational supporting programme. In comparison to last year, the area occupied by stands has increased in size to 6,300 m2 and the number of exhibitors has risen to 95. The exhibitors came from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, and Hungary. The contracting and sales fair Prodítě and the sales presentation Woman’s World were held separately for the first time; however, this did not stop them from attracting a large interest from the public. In the four days of the fair, more than 15 thousand visitors explored the companies’ expositions.
