New international matchmaking platform for the fashion industry

With TEXTILES-CONTACTS, Panorama Berlin launches a new business service, which networks brands with distributors and sales representatives. The founder of the Europe-wide B2B platform is the portal specialist m2b, which has already successfully established the matchmaking platforms SPORTS-CONTACTS and SHOES-CONTACTS. The new project connects three segments – sports, shoes and fashion – and provides access to over 50,000 international industry contacts. In addition to Panorama Berlin as partner, a first-rate Expert Advisory Board from the fashion industry provides professional support and assists the innovative project.

Comprehensive industry experience and more than 50,000 business contacts

In 2007, Michael Plank, the managing director of m2b GmbH, founded the B2B sales platform SPORTS-CONTACTS, which today has 20,000 international industry contacts. The portal SHOES-CONTACTS followed in November 2013 for the shoe industry and meanwhile has over 15,000 contacts. He launched his new project TEXTILES-CONTACTS with 15,000 contacts. TEXTILES-CONTACTS gives representatives from the fashion world access to an extensive, continually growing network that now has over 50,000 contacts. “The future for brands, the retail market and distributors lies in professionally connecting the three worlds of sports, shoes and fashion,” says Plank confidently.

“Our mediation service from a single source ensures transparency between the three worlds and significantly reduces the barrier for entry as well as the risks for brands in new business segments.”

The new fashion platform offers 16 product segments to choose from, and over 1,500 active fashion agencies have already registered to provide their services – firstly, in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium and Poland. Additional countries, like Sweden, Norway or Russia are in the service portfolio for 2016.
