Representing our brand on international platforms is an essential part of successful development, which helps us gain a reputation as a reliable and stable supplier, and build trust in the wedding market. That's why KOTAPSKA bridal couture takes its place of honor among exhibitors at the most prestigious industry exhibitions year after year.
Our participation in these events started in 2016 with the BRIDAL FASHION Warszawa exhibition (Poland), where we felt excited emotions and joy from the opportunity to communicate with new partners and share experiences with colleagues. We successfully showcased our products and realized that we were moving in the right direction.
Our next major venue was our first show at INTERBRIDE Düsseldorf (Germany) in 2017. It was an incredible experience as it was an anniversary show, and we had the opportunity to participate in the longest fashion show that broke all records. Moreover, as a result, we took a big step towards increasing our brand's presence in the German market.
Since then, we have become a permanent participant in the exhibition and took part in the events of 2018 and 2019.
Of course, we could not miss the biggest platform in the industry – BARCELONA BRIDAL FASHION WEEK. This platform is special because it is not only focused on the local market but is also as international as possible, covering the whole world. It is here where we have the opportunity to establish cooperation with clients from different continents and countries such as Latin America, the USA, and Asian countries. Since 2018, our company has been selected as a participant in the exhibition, and we have presented our collections as part of the insert exhibitions in 2019 and 2022.
NATIONAL BRIDAL MARKET CHICAGO and THE KNOT COUTURE SHOW New York are rightfully considered the main exhibitions of the US wedding market. In 2017, we presented our collection for the first time as part of the NATIONAL BRIDAL MARKET CHICAGO, announcing ourselves and establishing cooperation with new partners.
Our company's collections were also presented on the platform of THE KNOT COUTURE SHOW New York in 2018 and 2019. This was an incredible experience that allowed us to get to know new and potential partners and discuss the demands and needs of brides in the region.
Each of the exhibitions we visited significantly influenced the development of our company, and the expansion of sales territories, and contributed to the establishment of close relations with our customers and service providers. In addition, the format of each exhibition we visited included the possibility of communication and contact in an informal environment, during the annual gala evenings that conclude each event. This is a great opportunity for all participants to establish friendly, long-term partnership relations.
