Premium Group: Anita Tillmann about all PREMIUM GROUP shows

„CONTENT, EXCHANGE AND INSPIRATION“

„CONTENT, EXCHANGE AND INSPIRATION“

“We are on exactly the right track with our focal topics and concepts on the subject of Digitalisation, Sustainability and Retail Experiences. The feedback was overwhelmingly very positive. The concepts we have developed in recent months are spot on the contemporary pulse and there is considerable need for dialogue between all the parties. At PREMIUM we succeeded in breathing life into a new dynamic with the new brand mix in the halls and the focus on key looks. The stands looked truly amazing and a lot of time had clearly been spent working on the collections, too. The buyers loved the overall impact of this. They felt better appealed to, oriented – and entertained.
 
The PREMIUM GROUP stands for content, communication and inspiration. The feedback on the quality of the visitors to PREMIUM, SHOW&ORDER X PREMIUM and SEEK resonated overwhelmingly positively. Visitors are taking new trends and contacts home with them. There were buyers visiting from Stylebop, Macy’s or Caliroots.

The Art of connecting the fashion industry

"The atmosphere at all four shows and also the #FASHIONTECH BERLIN Conference was more successful than last summer. The exhibitors repeatedly praised the range of visitors – international buyers, well-founded fashion experts, people that love experiencing new trends and with a high level of awareness for our beautiful world. All of them took the chance to exchange and get inspired by the shows and events. Our strength is the concept of creating content, commerce and community – we connect the right people at the right time and at the right touchpoints.

Furthermore the new digital b2b platform veee.com was featured on the PREMIUM and SEEK and received a very positive feedback."
– Anita Tillmann, Managing Partner PREMIUM GROUP

On three days the PREMIUM GROUP once again showed and linked the most important international brands with buyers, influencers and other media representatives. Outcome: The real face-to-face exchange 2.0 is and remains important.
 
A total of 1,038 brands exhibited on the four formats. On top the #FASHIONTECH BERLIN offered the group's extensive and varied program as a conference. In addition to networking and trend scouting, the main focus was also on points of experience – an important aspect for the fashion industry, to which the PREMIUM GROUP increasingly relies. The halls of STATION Berlin, the Kühlhaus and the Arena Berlin were filled accordingly throughout the three days. The terrific summer weather contributed to the constantly positive atmosphere and invited all guests to enjoy all outdoor offers.

PREMIUM GROUP x BRIGHT Geschäftsführerwechsel

Marco Aslim und Thomas Martini, die beiden Gründer der Fachmesse BRIGHT für Streetwear, Skateboarding und Boardsport, treten zu Ende Februar nach 13 Jahren als Geschäftsführer zurück. Damit ist ein weiterer Schritt der Integration der BRIGHT in die Organisation der PREMIUM GROUP unter Anita Tillmann und Jörg Arntz vollzogen, die die BRIGHT bereits im Jahr 2015 zu 100 % übernommen haben.

Marco Aslim und Thomas Martini, die beiden Gründer der Fachmesse BRIGHT für Streetwear, Skateboarding und Boardsport, treten zu Ende Februar nach 13 Jahren als Geschäftsführer zurück. Damit ist ein weiterer Schritt der Integration der BRIGHT in die Organisation der PREMIUM GROUP unter Anita Tillmann und Jörg Arntz vollzogen, die die BRIGHT bereits im Jahr 2015 zu 100 % übernommen haben.

„Die BRIGHT war von Anbeginn mehr als eine konventionelle B2B-Plattform. Die Community, das Arbeiten mit Freunden und der Basis der Industrie, Skateboarding, Art und Musik waren immer treibende Kraft und Hauptaugenmerk der Messe. Die Emotionen und die gemeinsam erlebten Momente, deren Stahlkraft weit über die Messe hinaus wirksam waren, sind bleibende Mehrwerte. Berührungen, die wir nie vergessen werden. Viele Menschen haben in den vergangenen Jahren viel getan, damit die BRIGHT zu dem wurde, was sie ist: eine große Familie. Dafür möchten wir uns in aller Form bedanken" (Thomas Martini, ehemaliger Geschäftsführer BRIGHT).

 Der Geschäftsführerwechsel geht mit einer neuen konzeptionellen Ausrichtung des Formats einher. Die Nähe zwischen BRIGHT und SEEK wird über die gemeinsame Location hinaus erweitert. So wird eine Auswahl der BRIGHT-Brands in das Format der SEEK integriert und neu definiert. Ziel ist es, auf der einen Seite den Spirit der Community der vergangenen 13 Jahre zu erhalten und gleichzeitig eine Transformation in Gang zu setzen, die die Anforderungen des Contemporary-Street- und Urban-Markts widerspiegelt und bedient. Die Teams der SEEK und der BRIGHT werden zukünftig noch enger zusammenarbeiten und gemeinsam neue Konzepte und Formate basierend auf den Werten der BRIGHT entwerfen.
 
„Wir schätzen Thomas Martini und Marco Aslim sehr und blicken auf eine gute Zusammenarbeit zurück. Wir haben viel gelernt und profitieren auch weiterhin von ihrem Wissen und Know-how. Die PREMIUM GROUP steht dafür, Konzepte kontinuierlich weiterzuentwickeln und neu zu definieren. Skateboarding ist einerseits eine Community-getriebene Nische und andererseits – ab 2020 – eine olympische Disziplin. Wir beobachten, dass sich die Werte, Kultur und Sprache der Community im globalen Kontext verändern und arbeiten daran, diese Vielfältigkeit im jeweils passenden Rahmen zu präsentieren" (Anita Tillmann, Managing Partner PREMIUM GROUP).
 
Die BRIGHT ist Europas führende Fachmesse für Streetwear, Skateboarding und Boardsport.  2005 begann die Geschichte der Messe in Frankfurt im ehemaligen Polizeipräsidium mit 50 Brands und 500 Besuchern. Fünf Jahre später, im Jahr 2010, ist die BRIGHT mit 250 Brands und 5.000 Besuchern nach Berlin gezogen. Im ehemaligen Stasi-Kongresszentrum in der Normannenstraße hat sich die Internationalität und die Besucherzahl fast verdoppelt. 2015 machte die BRIGHT als Teil der PREMIUM GROUP und zusammen mit der SEEK die Arena zum wichtigsten Street- und Skatewear-Hub Europas.
