The international footwear exhibition Expo Riva Schuh, which took place on June 6-9 at the Italian business resort of Riva del Garda (Trentino), closed with excellent visitor statistics. 10 buyers came to the exhibition, 247 of them were from abroad. Expo Riva Schuh was attended by 6117 companies, including 1157 foreign exhibitors from 787 countries.
The numbers are absolutely identical to the statistics of the June exhibition last year, when visitors were 10 250 buyers. And this confirms the key role of the exhibition for large wholesale players and for retail companies that need affordable and fashionable brands.
“During the four days of the exhibition, we saw that the crisis became a driver of change for companies, they began to invest much more in the product, but, most importantly, the companies offer a fashionable assortment, keeping prices low,” says Roberto Pellegrini, President of Riva del Garda Fierecongressi ...
“It is worth emphasizing that manufacturers exhibiting almost 3 billion pairs of shoes a year participated in the Expo Riva Schuh exhibition,” adds Brigitte Buncher, event manager of the exhibition, “and this is a fifth of the world production. Orders made at the exhibition provide 85% of consumption throughout Europe. ”
