On Monday the 8th of August 2011 the first summer edition of Gallery2020 in Antwerp (Belgium) came to an end. Thinking back about the many happy faces spotted during the event of both the exhibitors and the visitors, we are extremely hopeful with regards to the fairâs commercial results.
Although the amount of visiting shops was 15% lower (1950 in total) than during the first winter edition, the reactions of the exhibitors regarding the qualitative standard of the Belgian and Dutch (13%) retailers were full of praise.
The exhibitors urged the organisers to definitely maintain the top-quality character of Gallery2020 during the next editions. The fact that this restriction hereby limits the number of collections to 250 is definitely not considered to be a negative aspect. Quite the contrary!
Gallery2020 has to remain a well-arranged and high-quality fair with regards to offer and visitors. Therefore, the selection committee must keep on doing its utmost in order to make the right choices.
It is therefore completely justified to grant Gallery2020 the following label: âpleasant and wonderful fair with regards to general atmosphere and a magnificent selection of labels and collectionsâ.
Gallery2020 winter edition: 5 and 6 February 2012 in Antwerp Expo.
