Number of visitors up at 69th Expo Riva Schuh
Feb '08
January 15th saw closure of the 69th edition of Expo Riva Schuh, the international show dedicated to volume footwear. From 12 to 15 January new collections for autumn/winter 2008/2009 were showcased in Riva del Garda, with accredited visitors up by 2% on January of last year.

A total of 11,238 sector operators visited this trade fair. These included 6,480 foreigners accounting for 58% of total visitors. The 4,758 Italian visitors, representing 42% of the total, also confirmed their interest in an event that has become a must-visit.

Satisfaction was expressed by organisers of this fair, which thanks to this result confirms its role as the most important event in the business of volume footwear for large-scale distribution.

Italian and foreign buyers, and in particular footwear sector operators from Central Europe, who continue to be the main interlocutors at Expo Riva Schuh, are helped by the position of the event on the specialist fair calendar, which allows them to view collections well ahead of other events.

“After closure of the 69th edition”, comments Roberto Pellegrini, President of Riva del Garda Fierecongressi, “we can proudly stress Expo Riva Schuh's growth over the years not just in terms of size but above all in prestige, which represents a fixed point for the reference segment and also a tool for opening up to emerging markets through new trade channels and new business opportunities. Figures in fact show that buyers trust our event and our capacity to put them in touch with the most interesting range of volume products on a world level".
