Exhibitor Reviews

“We saw a very good mix of professionals, musicians, teachers and dealers, a very well informed audience. Lots of known contacts came to visit us, but also some promising new ones. It is important for a brand like ours to keep flying the flag, so coming back to the show was absolutely the right decision.” – Wolfgang Weiss, Thomastik-Infeld, Austria

“We brought some new products to the show, tailormade to the Russian market, and they were very well received. We met with our existing clients and contacts, and also made some new ones, which is good. We’ve been doing business here for over 20 years, so we know the market fairly well. The market shows a lot of insecurities at the moment – which is why we came without great expectations. But one thing hasn’t changed here and that is that all parents in Russia want their children to have a musical education which gives us hopes for the future.” – Ursula Herold, Owner, Herold Musikinstrumente, Germany
