We did not expect that!

The crowd of visitors to the 29th PigonMarket took us by surprise on Saturday morning already. Offering a marvellous programme and a large selection of visitors, we welcomed our pigeon sports family who has grown this year again significantly. In particular, the large number of breeders from Europe, China, Taiwan, Thailand, the USA and the Arabic region showed us that it is not necessary for us to worry about the future.

10 years cooperation between EXPOGolebie/Poland – International PigeonMarket Kassel/Germany

From 12th to 14th of January the Organizing Team of the ITM Kassel was present with an Info-Stand at the EXPOGolebie in Sosnowiec near Katowice/Poland – the most important exhibition for the polish pigeon fanciers. This event is on the one hand an international pigeon fair and on the other hand the national racing pigeon exhibition. As a very nice act of courtesy the organizers of the EXPOGolebie handed over to Irma Kreutzfeldt (the organizer of the ITM Kassel)  a wonderful engraved glass cup with thanks for the excellent cooperation during the last 10 years. Such an international cooperation between the organizers of racing pigeon exhibitions can only be of advantage for both,  pigeon fanciers and exhibitors – this was proved by the increasing number of visitors and sales results in Kassel and Sosnowiec.


Shake hands between the organizers of the Voorjaarsbeurs Houten (NL) and the International PigeonMarket Kassel (D)!

Last weekend in Dortmund at the occasion of the DBA Proffsport and TaubenMarkt/Die Sporttaube came to an agreement upon a stipendium for the spring fair in Houten. Exhibitors have the opportunity to place adverts in the wellknown international monthly magazine ‘TaubenMarkt/Die Sporttaube’. This magazine will be read by thousands of subcribers worldwide and more than that thousands of copies will be given for free to the visitors of the Voorjaarsbeurs Houten on 3rd and 4th of March, 2018.

We are very happy about this extraordinary cooperation!

Subasta „EUROPEAN SUPERSTARS Olympiade & As-Tauben Spezial 2017!“

Tradicionalmente, la programación para los visitantes del todo del mundo ofreció una subasta excepcional otra vez. Palomares europeos de primer nivel vinieron con dos a cuatro palomas de crianza a Kassel. Eran hijos o hermanos de participatores olimpicos, A-Palomas nacionales o campeones nacionales. Participantes con nombres importantes eran D., F., N. Schlechtriem, Roland y Denis Faber, Hagedorn-Becker, Schlief-Stiens, Andreas Drapa, E. y C. Börger, Kersting y Söhne, Dirk de Beer, Dieter Wöhr, Hartmut Will, SG Feldotto, Tino Bergemann, Familie Herbots, Luc van Mechelen, Koen van Roy, Flanders Collection, Leo Heremans y Paul Huls.

El subastor era Gerald Mack (Amazing Wings). Él es uno de los subastores más reconocidos en el deporte de palomas mensajeras en Europa.

La subasta fue organizada por Peter Kocks, como en los años anteriores. Peter es criador de palomas mensajeras desde hace 50 años y es editor de la plataforma www.brieftauben-markt.de y más. Anteriormente, la subasta era anunciado y promocionado en la revista „TaubenMarkt/Die Sporttaube“ y en los portales online www.brieftauben-markt.de, www.taubenmarkt-kassel.de y www.herbots.com. Se introducieron los criadores, las palomas y los éxitos de esa manera. Además, habían collages de fotos con impresiones de palomas y palomares de cada participante en el red y durante la subasta.

Peter Kocks relaciones nacionales y internacionales prometieron lo mejor materiál palomar, como los nombres de los participantes indicaron. Y las esperas cumplieron. En el 2016 habían más que 3.000 interesados en la sala de la subasta, este año estaban al menos 1.000 más. La paloma más cara llevó un precio de 3.600 €. Era una paloma joven del „Arthur“ del SG Feldotto. Se mudó en la región de Magdeburg. El promedio de los ingresos de todas palomas era a 783 €. Curiosamente, las ofertas para palomas alemanas eran más altas que las para palomas belgas, Die Gebote für die deutschen Tauben lagen interessanter Weise deutlich höher als für die belgischen, una indicación para el aprecio para la paloma mensajera alemana sobre los amigos del deporte.
