CZ company stand at IWA 2015 attracted visitors not only with its new design.
Also this year, as every year, Česká zbrojovka a.s. (CZ company), took part in the traditional IWA Outdoor Classics fair, which is the largest international fair in this segment of weapons in Europe. The exhibition took place at the NürnbergMesse fair grounds in the German city of Nurenberg from 6. to 9. March 2015 and it was open daily from 9:00 to 18:00. The IWA fair focused on three basic segments – sport shooting, outdoor and safety. The opening ceremony was attended by Joachim Herrmann, the Interior Minister of Bavaria, and Ulrich Maly, the Mayor of the City of Nurenberg.
For Česká zbrojovka, it has been one of the most successful exhibitions in recent years, not only because of the new exhibition stand, whose strategic position next to the main entrance of the fair grounds and impressive design and size attracted all visitors already at the first sight. Also the media and journalists specialized in this field showed interest in the Česká zbrojovka’s exposition. Especially new short and long firearms drew attention. For the first time ever, the expert public was presented a new over-under rifle-shotgun Brno Combo produced by Zbrojovka Brno. Huge interest was raised, not only because of an exceptional advertising campaign, but also because of its quality, by the small-bore rifle CZ 455 JAGUAR, a successor of the very successful model CZ 452 KATAR, with a longer barrel (726 mm).
In the small-bore rifle product range, we also presented CZ 455 LUX II with 630mm barrel, flap sights and wallnut stock. In the rifle range, we presented the models CZ 557 SYNTHETIC, with universal plastic stock featuring soft-touch surface and original design engravings, and CZ 527 YOUTH CARBINE, whose ergonomy makes it very attractive for beginning shooters. Presented for the very first time in the pistol range were the compact pistol CZ 75 P-01 Ω with interchangeable controls and CZ 75 TS ORANGE with manually aligned barrel, whose new material and design of the link significantly enhance its service life. Especially the latter model drew a lot of attention from the ranks of sport shooters and expert public. Many visitors were leaving our stand with a much welcomed souvenir, a poster of our new small-bore rifle CZ 455 JAGUAR signed by Gabriela Žáková, the face of this weapon.
Nine exhibition halls housed a total of 1383 exhibiting firms, mainly from the countries like USA, Italy, Great Britain, Turkey, China, France, Czech Republic, Spain and Austria. During the four days, a total of 41 748 visitors from 123 countries attended the exhibition.
This year’s IWA exhibition has exceeded our expectations and we already regard it as one of the most successful this year. We would like to thank our business partners, journalists and other visitors for their visit, support and interest in our products.
