In early March, the international professional exhibition of footwear Euro Shoes Premiere Collection took place in Moscow. The Moscow exhibition of European footwear brands kicked off on a high note, as it took place despite the ongoing Covid-19 quarantine in many European countries.
For many brands from Italy, Turkey, Spain and other countries, this event became the only opportunity for “live” contact with Russian buyers who came to the exhibition from different parts of the country. The event was attended by all the main participants of Euro Shoes - popular in Russia German footwear brands Caprice, Tamaris, Marco Tozzi, S'Oliver, Jana, Rieker, Austrian brand Hogl, Spanish Pikolinos, Turkish MyM, Italian Ash and many others. Among the exhibitors, a large number of new brands from Turkey and Italy were noted.

On the second day of the event, His Excellency Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Turkey to the Russian Federation Mehmet Samsar arrived at Euro Shoes, who visited the stands of Turkish shoe brands and greeted the participants of Euro Shoes.
