Expo Riva Schuh: celebrates the past and constructs the future
Expo Riva Schuh gets ready to cross the finish line of its 90th edition, paying homage to its history and roots, while also setting its sights on present and future challenges.
The story of Expo Riva Schuh is one-of-a-kind: originally launched as a meeting point between representatives and buyers from the world of footwear who were on vacation in the Lake Garda area, over the years, it has confirmed itself to be an international reference for volume footwear. A genuinely special showcase that today represents the main productive hubs worldwide: among the more than 1,400 exhibitors coming from 40 different countries, the June edition confirms the presence of the Indian, Chinese, and Brazilian collectives, which will complete the offering of Italian and European brands.
Protagonists of the Expo Riva Schuh summer edition will be the Spring-Summer 2019 collections, together with the Fall-Winter 2019 re-stockings: in this way, the Riva event will succeed in tearing down the barriers that usually divide the seasons, while also replying to the needs of fast fashion, which is currently the winning model in the fashion industry.
There will then be the initiatives dedicated to buyers with Expo Riva Schuh Around the World, the promotional project of the event on emerging markets, which for this edition will focus on intercepting new contacts and opportunities in France and Vietnam.
Finally, the 90th edition of Expo Riva Schuh will see the debut of Gardabags, a new exhibition project dedicated to the world of bags and leather goods, which was specifically created to reply to the growing demand for a total look. The selection of Gardabags will be hosted in the 2 thousand-plus square metre PalaVela structure located on the lakefront and directly connected to the Riva del Garda Congress Centre, the historic venue of Expo Riva Schuh.
