Zalando – Bread & Butter meets Band-Aid

Zalando announced its takeover of bankrupt leisurewear trade show Bread & Butter Berlin. The online fashion portal wanted to continue as scheduled with the next show in January 2016 at the old Tempelhof airport, but was forced to cancel due to the building’s proposed use as a registration and accommodation point for refugees. Zalando supported this and postponed the show to July 2016. Instead, the company announced the organization of a charity festival for the benefit of refugees – most likely happening in the first quarter 2016.
