What Our Exhibitors Say About HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT

  • Two Months Worth of Orders Booked In
    "HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT was very well attended, and we were able to make a lot of well-qualified contacts and go home with a large number of orders. All in all, the fair brought us orders for about two months' work. There were a lot of garden owners present, as well as owners of campsites from the Leipziger Neuseenland – which suited us well, thanks to the high demand for solid wooden outdoor furniture in the run-up to summer. There was also a lot of interest in toilet stalls for the garden. We'll be back!" Dachdeckerei Wacker GmbH, Schlotheim, Carsten Wacker, Matthias Sontag, Owner
  • Open-Minded and Eager-to-Buy Audience
    "My premiere at HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT was a complete success. I encountered an open-minded and eager-to-buy audience who appreciated my SeelenWiege premium hanging loungers. I'll be back, because it was worth it." SeelenWiege Bildhauer & Tischlermeister Thomas Brokopp, Hohen Schönberg, Thomas Brokopp, Owner
  • Numerous Transactions & Enquiries
    "A large number of transactions placed directly on-site, lots of enquiries about specific products and services – HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT was once again a resounding success for me. It was my sixth time there and I was able to make significantly more new contacts than last year. I, therefore, look forward to good follow-up business after the fair. Visitors to the trade fair in Leipzig appreciate quality and are prepared to spend money to get it. I presented the Finnish bathtubs for the first time, which were particularly well received. Many visitors had already researched the offers beforehand, and I was able to connect with interested people from all over Central Germany – from Brandenburg to Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony to Thuringia." by HOLZHEIM, Weißenborn, Ronny Voigt, Owner
  • Long-Lasting Impact on Business
    “HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT went even better than last year – and that was already great. We used discounted trade fair tickets to bring a lot of customers to the fair, and they purchased extensively. Our natural stone planter was a particular hit. Above all, however, we wanted to use our presentation to inspire visitors with creative landscape design – and it worked. We were able to write a number of quotes for garden design. Regular customers also took the opportunity to finalise orders. We will definitely be back, since this fair has a long-term impact, and generates good business – something we've learned from experience." L.P.M. Mathias Schmidt Garten- und Landschaftsgestaltung, Krostitz, Mathias Schmidt, Owner
  • Great Premiere With Lots of Orders
    "We had a great premiere at the HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT! Lively atmosphere, many customers of all ages from young families to 50+ who were eager to learn and, above all, keen to buy, plenty of direct sales for our premium whirlpools – it was a successful event all round. There was also hot interest in our flagship product, a swim spa with a countercurrent system and whirlpool. Our promotional material was in high demand, so we expect good follow-up business and quite a few visitors to visit our showrooms as well. We will gladly return!“ 4Deluxe GmbH, Berlin, Julia Hoffmann, Managing Director
  • Exceeded Our Goal
    „We are extremely satisfied with our premiere at HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT. Our aim was to attract new customers – and this was more than accomplished. We were able to arrange a great many direct appointments with prospective buyers at their homes. We, therefore, look forward to a great follow-up business after the fair. This trade fair was just the right place to present our air conditioning systems to a large pool of customers. Visitors travelled from a radius of around 150 kilometres and ranged from young parents with children to senior citizens, so we had the entire scope of our target group at the stand. Our trade fair offerings were also well received. We will definitely be back!" Klima-Service Fronz, Plauen, Daniela Ludewig, Deputy Managing Director
  • Loyal Exhibitor for 20 Years
    "The HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT was once again a success for us – as was to be expected. We have been coming here for 20 years and this fair has long established itself as one of the top 5 events among the 28 or so exhibitions we visit each year. There was a large number of visitors, and our functional furniture was particularly well received. The audience came from a radius of about 150 kilometres, was very decisive and willing to spend a lot of money on high-quality products. Next year's HAUS-GARTEN-FREIZEIT is already a firm fixture in the calendar." LANAKUR Möbelhandels GmbH, Meppen, Peter Bartels, Owner and Managing Director
