The founders of Bright, the German trade show dedicated to skate brands, have announced they are stepping down at the end of February. Thomas Martini and Marco Aslim launched the event in 2005. Their move follows the arrival of a new majority shareholder, Clarion Events. Bright was acquired by Premium Group in 2015. At the time, the founders remained at the helm of the exhibition. Premium Group includes Seek, Bright, Premium, Show & Order, and FashionTech Berlin. The departure of Martini and Aslim will be accompanied by a new conceptual direction for the event and, in the future, closer collaboration between the Bright and Seek teams.
