And speaking of the global market, the situation can particularly be gauged during a trade fair like Vicenzaoro. Any news from the September edition?
“Loto Preziosi has been attending Vicenzaoro since the very beginning of its history but the September edition was a pleasant surprise, also because we expected to find fewer companies and visitors. Instead, it was far beyond our expectations. The common feeling among all our colleagues, was that all the customers were yearning to buy and get back to working hard. They weren’t there out of curiosity as often happens at trade shows; they came for a very specific practical purpose. This was also helped by the new exhibition layout, which was more organic and functional in terms of finding the company best suited to their needs. At least that's what they told us. We were also able to develop new contacts with potential foreign customers. Where were they from? United States, Israel, the Emirates... At every trade show, we offer between 300 and 500 new articles to add to our total of 48,000 references. With such a wide range of products we are really able to satisfy every taste and demand. And we also often create ad hoc lines for a specific market. Take the Arab countries, for example. They are not all the same: the public in Kuwait is different from that of Oman, Dubai or Yemen. And talking about Africa does not mean being able to offer customers in North Africa the same things as in Central and South Africa. But this is the most beautiful part of our job: being able to interpret very different visions and aesthetic concepts while imprinting the Made in Italy touch."
