Predictably, the final day of mainstream show Panorama was quiet, but exhibitors praised a strong edition of the Berlin exhibition overall.
Brands reiterated that it was a very domestic show with the overwhelming majority of buyers coming from Germany.

Mood of the show
Arianna Mella, export sales department, Ekle
”Overall it’s been a good show for us. The first couple of days were very busy although we’ve seen less people so far on the last day. We’re a new brand to the German market, so there’s been a lot of interest. There’s been a lot of German customers. Although in previous seasons we’ve seen people from Asia, it’s mainly been the German market and some from Europe.”
Stephen McKenzie, global head of wholesale at Glamorous
“The show was very busy on Tuesday and Wednesday. We saw a lot of German and Italian customers but there wasn’t many from the UK here. It wasn’t as many buyers around today but the right ones were here earlier this week.”
Lennart Nordam Anderson, sales coordinator at Ichi
“Overall we are very satisfied with the show. It isn’t as international as Bread & Butter was but we saw a lot of good German customers. The last day is always quiet but you often have the larger accounts like Zalando here, as they have more time to talk when it is quieter.”
