Our usual considerations about SHG and RitmiShow.
The audience has been confirmed at the record levels of last year and the two-day formula added the opportunity for visitors to enjoy the events in a more relaxed way. Your investment was therefore valued and the first gathered impressions confirm that most of you have obtained excellent results in terms of sales and visibility.
For us it is a great satisfaction: we bet against the crisis, supporting the significant increases in costs for the two-day (location, staff, security, etc.), for increasing the area of the booths without any increase for you. We have also set up a low cost area for artisans and collectors, who gave birth to a show in the show. The successful experiment proves that the formula “less pressure, more relax” is a winning one.
An important a step forward has been taken also on the events side: we guaranteed the demo to all of you who have requested it, even in this case with a commitment to unparalleled resources on our part.
In short, we have sown the seed, but because to grow and bear fruit the plant will need the cooperation of everyone. We will get in touch as soon as possible to define the events of 2014, the South in late April and Milan in the autumn.
In conclusion we wish to thank those who have supported the initiative by taking part, involving artists, providing resources and products, at all levels.
