Opinions on VIVANESS

Dr Mark Smith, Director General of supporting organization NATRUE

"With increased consumer demand and market growth, it is without doubt that VIVANESS consistently provides a welcoming home to inspire and provide a dynamic international platform to galvanise the sector. NATRUE was proud to participate and contribute to VIVANESS’s vibrant expert supporting programme, presenting up-to-date information relevant to the sector’s challenges and opportunities like certification and sustainability. As an honorary sponsor of VIVANESS, and with our largest joint stand ever, NATRUE and our 12 co-exhibitors were happy with large attendance. Congratulations to VIVANESS for another successful fair!"

Harald Dittmar, Managing Director BDIH, founding member of COSMOS

“At VIVANESS 2018, COSMOS-standard AISBL brought more small and medium-sized enterprises to the exhibition for the first time at its stand, which was larger again this year as befits its role as honorary sponsor. We were very pleased that everyone who took part has only good things to say about it, and that our concept fitted well with what seemed a still more international flavour at VIVANESS this year. It was also gratifying to see that the international trade visitors are becoming better and better informed about standards and certification for natural and organic cosmetics. We consider this a good sign for the work we are doing, and also a good success for VIVANESS.”

Bernd Albrecht, CEO BAIMS Organic Cosmetics GmbH

We are absolutely happy with our attendance at the exhibition, and we achieved our objectives entirely. We attended for the first time last year, and received feedback on our presence. Since it was so good, we came armed with products this time, and it has proved a sensational opportunity, compressed into just four days, to make so many valuable contacts. I don’t just mean Germany, either – our contacts have been international. I have just tried to register again for next year, since we definitely plan to come back again."

Ute Leube, joint founder of PRIMAVERA LIFE

“We really enjoyed the extremely good atmosphere at the exhibition and thank everyone for the excellent organisation! As one of the original exhibitors, we have been attending for 28 years and have watched it steadily grow and make a name for itself during that time. An aspect that is unique and not to be missed, in our view, is the opportunity for personal conversations with international customers, raw material suppliers and media representatives. Besides a range of interesting enquiries, our new contacts include media representatives from outside Germany in particular, which are not part of the traditional organic scene – our themes of organics and sustainability have reached the mainstream of society. The exhibition has once again been a total success for PRIMAVERA. And we are already looking forward to VIVANESS 2019!”

Danila Brunner, Executive Director VIVANESS and BIOFACH

“Innovative, varied and international – these key words summarise VIVANESS 2018, but do not even come close to describing it. We have just had four days full of interesting contacts, inspiring conversations and stimulation for the future, for which the new special show ‘Let’s talk VIVANESS’ provided an ideal networking platform. Our summary of the event – positive without exception – is buoyed by the very pleasant atmosphere at the venue and the excellent feedback from both exhibitors and visitors. Putting it simply, we’re looking forward to 2019 already!”
