We listened to the live testament of the companies participating in the June 2022 edition of Expo Riva Schuh, including their impressions of the event and results achieved over the four days of exhibition. For all concerned, the fair was host to a lively and positive climate, with a great desire to leave Covid behind and once again being travelling and doing business.
The fair in São Paulo, Brazil, now in its 52nd edition, will be held from 22 to 24 August in partnership with Mercado Livre, one of the leading marketplaces in the world, to favour the participation of retailers.
A clear vision is that of GianPaola Pedretti, the new Exhibition Manager at Expo Riva Schuh: the fair as a ‘here’ and ‘now’ where it’s possible to meet the entire community, try out a new experience, rediscover your world also on a humane level, and naturally do business.
