Free Stuff * Clothing and footwear markets in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slova

After a major downturn on the Central European retail markets in 2009, last year brought an improvement in the clothing and footwear (C&F) industry. However, growth did not return to all countries. The slowdown continued in Hungary and Slovakia in 2010, whereas the Czech Republic’s fashion market stagnated. Between 2011 and 2013, all of the CE clothing and footwear markets analysed are expected to improve, although at different rates, and to achieve sales worth more than €15bn in 2013.

Merchandise sales drive Pixar's 'Cars' franchise

In the five years since its 2006 release, "Cars" has generated global retail sales approaching $10 billion, according to Disney. That ranks the Pixar film alongside such cinematic merchandising standouts as "Star Wars," "Spider-Man" and "Harry Potter," as well as its own paean to playthings, "Toy Story," according to researcher NPD.

When it comes to sequels, "Cars 2" flies in the face of conventional Hollywood calculus. Its predecessor was the least well-reviewed of Pixar Animation Studios ' 11 movies and among its poorest performers at the box office — at least, by the premier animation studio's sterling sta

SIGNATURE participants value their time and financial investments in such events by the number of productive meetings held, the decision-making level of other delegates, and by the proportion of qualified leads in attendance.

This is why all SIGNATURE events are empowered by impeccable database generation procedures, effective matchmaking techniques, and the dedication of an experienced and multilingual research staff trained to monitor television, online, mobile, licensed properties, advertising, direct marketing, manufacturing and retail business activities in strategic emerging world regions.
SIGNATURE events are held in hotels and regroup over two days:

EXHIBITING SELLERS (40/70 companies) representing brand and property owners and licensing agents.
QUALIFIED BUYERS (150/250 companies) representing licensees, manufacturers, retailers, advertisers and their advertising agencies.

While preparing for SIGNATURE, participants can benefit from our GO-TO-MARKET SERVICES, specifically developed to assist BUYERS and SELLERS in the planning of their meetings.

These services are offered in each participating package, and made available in advance of each SIGNATURE event.

They include:

1. Six (6) months before SIGNATURE event a list of existing and potential property BUYERS, active in the country under focus and targeted for the event, is generated following strict research and validation procedures.

2. A telephone campaign is then deployed to sign-up these BUYERS to receive an electronic catalog profiling the licensed properties showcased at the market.

3. Six (6) weeks before the market, the SIGNATURE catalog is mailed out to all signed-up BUYERS. Enriched by photographic, audio and video components, the catalog is meant to trigger BUYERS’ interest and encourage the advance organization of meetings.

4. Lists of EXHIBITING SELLERS, and of BUYERS who have agreed to receive the SIGNATURE catalog, are made available online, complete with company profiles and delegates’ business intentions.

5. Following the mailing of the SIGNATURE catalog, our in-house telephone operators are set in motion to plan as many useful meetings as possible between BUYERS and SELLERS.

6. One (1) week before the market, participants receive a personalized agenda of meetings, confirmed with motivated and recommended prospects.

7. Recommended lists of BUYERS and SELLERS to meet with can be generated thanks to efficient, in-house data cross-checking processes, be it by BUYER product category or SELLER licensed property category.

8. Additional meetings can also organized on-site with last-minute, unexpected attendees.

Meetings take place in communal and restricted areas where SELLERS can opt for two different turnkey EXHIBITING OPTIONS. Qualified property BUYERS are always offered complimentary access to the SIGNATURE program. Due to their limited availability, SELLERS EXHIBITING OPTIONS are available on a first come, first served basis.
