Shoes and bags become allies at Riva del GardaNow in its 92nd edition, Expo Riva Schuh will be held from 15 to 18 June, offering a merchandise selection in line with the needs of global markets and renewed exhibition spaces.
Expo Riva Schuh and Gardabags join forces and present themselves at the June edition in the single location of the Palafiere in via Baltera at Riva del Garda. Thus, together, they give life to the biggest international business hub with an integrated offering of footwear and accessories for the volume segment. While the selection dedicated to footwear returns to enliven the exhibition in Pavilions A-B-C, extending across an area of 34,500 sqm, Gardabags bags instead debuts in a space of 4,000 net sqm in the new Pavilion D.
“We are pursuing a strategy that is in line with our mission: to offer an increasingly accurate selection of the merchandise proposal coupled with innovative services and the renewal of the exhibition spaces – says Giovanni Laezza, General Manager of Riva del Garda Fierecongressi – The single location hosting the two events offers buyers and professionals a unique and comprehensive experience. At every edition, we gather together the main players on an international level from China, Italy and India, creating a platform for them to meet the different professionals in the sector, while attracting operators from over 100 countries. Our strength is a deep knowledge of the markets combined with great flexibility in responding to the needs of the global footwear sector”.
Altogether, Expo Riva Schuh+Gardabags will present an offering of over 1500 exhibitors coming from the world’s most important production districts, while also presenting the special pavilions of the Top China Fashion and India Halls, along with the collective presence of exhibitors from countries like Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Hong Kong, and Tunisia… As far as visitors are concerned, 13 thousand were registered at the last edition, and this edition will include the participation of buyers, large distribution chains, but also fast fashion chains, private labels, and e-commerce channels. Enough to kick off, as with each new edition, a dynamic and business-oriented sales season.
An important moment for interaction and on-going trend analyses on global markets will instead be offered by the opening inaugural talk, which will see the participation of institutions, association members, entrepreneurs and the international press.
Since Expo Riva Schuh is also known for being a widespread exhibition, select brands will accordingly display their collections at the hotels of Riva del Garda, while merging with the rest of the exhibition itinerary, thanks to convenient shuttle connections between the two.
Finally, the unique setting in which the event takes place, Alto Garda, offers participants extra incentive when the time to enjoy themselves outside of the fair arrives, with amazing landscapes and the sampling local delicacies.
