I would like to proudly announce that a very interesting WetShaving event took place last weekend in Poland.
During the hairdressing and cosmetics trade fair, for 2 days, together with a friend, we prepared an exhibition of shaving equipment.
The second time in Poland, but the first time on such a scale. On a European scale.

Little background:

International Poznan Trades
We are proud that Poznań has been the fair capital of Poland for almost 100 years, and Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie (MTP) is the undisputed leader among trade fair centers in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe. Halfway from Warsaw to Berlin and within 7 agglomerations, in the very center of Poznań, there are the most modern, professionally prepared fair grounds with an area of 212.5 ha, including an exhibition area with facilities and administrative areas of 22.9 ha.
Top industry events are held here, new products and premieres are shown here. This is where business leaders meet to make key decisions about the future of their companies. International Poznan Trades. Trade fair center no. 1 in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe.

LOOK! and beautyVISION fair
Each year (with 2-years break due to pandemic) there are grooming an beauty trades held in MTP. Top barbers, top grooming companies, top beauty producers, a lot of haircut shows, lectures, talks and discussions.

Wet Shaving Exhibition
During last LOOK! fair (in 2019) my colleague and one of the top WetShaving collectors in Poland have got first polish Wet Shaving exhibition. With 3 cabinets (2 big and 1 small) filled to the brim with shaving artifacts – it was very well received by the fair visitors.
That's when the idea was born to combine 2 collections – Przemysław’s an mine – and held the biggest in Poland (and most likely in Europe) WetShaving exhibition.

European shaving equipment exhibition
During 8th to 9th of May, European shaving equipment exhibition has taken a place.

There was one spot with 10 Stando razors which was brought directly by Stanislaw (producer) but apart from that all of the listed above and exhibited items are from Przemyslaw’s or mine collection (2 people)

That is just an amazing collection, and beautifully displayed.  Thank you for posting the photos and video.  I'm sure a lot of guys here will enjoy seeing this.

Is that you in the third and fourth photos?
