„Silver Shoe“ for HASSIA in NL
The Austrian brand HASSIA had been awarded at the fair „Buy & Bloom“ in the shoe-order- center C.A.S.T. In Nieuwegein by the leading purchasing association ANWR-Garant Netherlands – with 450 affiliated specialist dealers – with the „Silver Shoe 2017“ as the best supplier.
Decisive for this award were the innovative strength of the brand and the attractive further development of the collection, in addition with the very good product quality and excellent sales figures in the specialized retail. The perfect support of the customers by the agency Best-Step by Anne-Marie and Rob Gaasbeek was another essential success factor for the great development of the premium brand HASSIA in the Netherlands.
„Obtaining this award in one of the most fashionably demanding comfort shoe markets in Europe is, of course, a great honor and at the same time confirms that the path we have taken – to a modern comfort shoe – is internationally successful,“ says LORENZ Shoe Group and HASSIA Managing Director Patrick Lorenz. He received the „Silver Shoe“ on 5 March 2018 together with the brand manager of HASSIA, Rosemarie Okcu and the agency Best-Step, with great thanks to the many retail partners.
