Benefit for the winners is versatile. On the one hand, it is a great marketing tool – we are participating in the international exhibitions, events; being mentioned in various press releases, apps, etc. On the other hand, it also directly promotes our sales. The international recognition of our products design is important to our current and potential clients. This is exactly what has helped us to set a foot and establish ourselves in the sales channels such as “Asda”, “Komsa”, “Attelco”, “Notebooksbilliger” in Germany and United Kingdom. At the moment they generate 30 % of these markets turnover. The cost of 1 product participation in the competition is around 3,000 EUR. However, the investment more than pays off itself.’
