Make-up artists love networking – here in Düsseldorf and at our stand you have come to exactly the right place. Although there cannot be sensational innovations every year a great deal is happening in our sector, especially in technology. We pass on the relevant information – this goes down enormously well. mehr lesen

Marc Fusté, Owner Graftobian La Bette Studio

2016 was our first appearance at mads and we have drawn a very positive conclusion! We really liked how we met a totally professional trade audience here. At the same time, everything was very relaxed and we got a friendly reception. The proximity of the exhibition centre to the city is ideal. We were pleasantly surprised by the shows and presentations – they featured really key artists. mehr lesen

Wolfram Langer, Managing Director at Kryolan

We had considerably more visitors to the stand this year than last and interest in mads is obviously rising. We were able to make interesting contacts, also abroad. Many visitors come here exclusively because we are attending. mehr lesen

Patricia Saito-Lewe, Managing Director at Ben Nye Company. Inc

2016 is the third time we have been here and we have registered more visitors. Düsseldorf is a good meeting point, here we have contact with professionals from theatre, film and television. At the same time, we are able to support our business partners. This year the Airbrush line was very popular with a demonstration at our stand. Anyhow, mads is a good place to learn about techniques and products – also under real conditions. mehr lesen

Mark Coulier, London

I actually wanted to already come back in 2015 but because of a film I couldn’t make it – which is why I enjoyed it all the more this year. I felt the audience at mads was very attentive, a good mix of talents. Although or maybe because I mainly work in the field of prosthetics I enjoyed the opportunity at this fair to look beyond my own backyard for once: I like this variety of topics enormously.

Lianne Moseley, Calgary

This was my first time here and the show was wonderful. There is lots of friendly exchange amongst colleagues and the mood is pleasantly relaxed. I like the variety on offer – a successful blend of all kinds of people, styles and products. What’s more, it’s great that things are so personal and coherently laid out.

Stuart Bray, London

I particularly liked the familiar and really intimate atmosphere. Exactly the right target audience is reached here, questions are precise and qualified and it’s about techniques – I like that. It is exciting: on the one hand, I teach here and, on the other, I learn myself and gather inspiration. There is a lot going on in our sector and here in Düsseldorf you are in the heart of things.

Love Larson, Stockholm

I have never been to mads before and I was pleasantly surprised. I met fantastic professionals here and was able to exchange ideas with them in a relaxed setting. The features in the specialist programme are highly interesting and show the fully variety of our profession.

Gary Cockerill, London

The atmosphere at mads is entirely professional, people go about things in a very focused manner. Though, at the same time, when exchanging ideas with colleagues you can really have fun getting tips here and there and learning new styles.

Lan Nguyen-Grealis, London

What I like is the professionalism as well as the proximity to the real market. You get to know new trends, products and techniques – this is such an asset. At the same time, I am happy it is not so crowded and swopping ideas with colleagues is at the forefront. Düsseldorf is a perfect meeting point for our sector.

Joe Delude II, Northhampton

I was here for the first time and felt exceptionally welcome. I looked at many interesting presentations and was able to get to know new techniques.
