Trade Fair FOR GARDEN 2017

Expositions of spring trade fairs are fascinating - the organisers selected the best ones

The TOP EXPO competition of the FOR HABITAT, FOR GARDEN, FOR FURNITURE Trade Fairs, of the DESIGN SHAKER Selective Exhibition of Interior Design and of the LIGHT IN ARCHITECTURE Specialised Exhibition already knows its winners. There were many possibilities for choice at the trade fair, which means that the work of the Jury members was not easy. Important features for the Jury included not only the appearance but also functionality and focus on customers. 

The unambiguously dominating exposition among the FOR HABITAT Trade Fair exhibitors was the one of DOPOS Přelouč s.r.o., a supplier of shading technology, which fascinated through its detailed design and excellent presentation of the exhibits. The best stand at the FOR FURNITURE Trade Fair was presented by CFH Group, a.s., which manufactures medical mattresses. The Jury appreciated the high-quality layout of the exposition with an emphasis on details. PIESOK-SK s.r.o. addressed visitors with an inspiring solution of the exposition presented at the trade fair for gardens and garden technology. The organisers of the FOR GARDEN Trade Fair decided to grant a Honourable Mention also to the irrigation company Profigrass s.r.o. for an interesting solution of promotion of exhibits. The minimal design of the furniture manufacturing company “JELÍNEK - výroba nábytku s.r.o.” was appreciated by the Jury at the Selective Exhibition of Interior Design known as DESIGN SHAKER. An absolutely unique architectonic design of the entire exposition was demonstrated by PROLICHT CZECH s.r.o. at the Specialised Exhibition LIGHT IN ARCHITECTURE.
