A – This year’s BWL Newsweek, organised by the German suppliers’ association BWL, kicked off in Vienna on April 17th, 2013. Around 60 exhibitors presented their innovations and highlights at the luxurious Liechtenstein Palace in the heart of the Austrian capital. The exhibitors’ line-ups had no problem keeping up with the magnificent ambiance and contrary to the numerous museum artefacts the visitors were even allowed to touch the suppliers’ novelties. The atmosphere at the trade show was mirrored by the weather – beautiful sunshine. The majority of the exhibitors were satisfied because according to the official figures almost 500 people attended the event.
The exhibiting agencies Absatzplus, District 17, FG1 Gschwantner, Mitraco, MS Promotion and Wunderbaldinger were greatly responsible for the high number of visitors, because in the run-up to the event the promotional products distributors had invited their customers to attend.
