Security concerns impact four Messe Frankfurt shows

Security concerns impacted four Messe Frankfurt shows, Texworld Paris, Apparelsourcing Paris, Avantex Paris and Shawls & Scarves Paris which were held concurrently from February 15-18, 2016 in Paris.

Political upheavals which affected major international events in Paris also had an effect on the results of the four trade fairs, which led to a 7 per cent drop in visitor numbers, reaching a total of 12,684 visitors.

Asians, and to a lesser extent American visitors, sensitive about the security rules issued by major fashion groups, were less in evidence, down 8 per cent in the case of USA, and 18 per cent for Asia as a whole.

In a press release, Michael Scherpe, CEO of Messe Frankfurt France said, “Although the numbers were less, business did not suffer at all, as this was made up by the quality of visitors.”

The redeeming feature was that, for the second time in a row, France recorded a rise of almost 5 per cent compared to September 2015.

While, visitors from Netherlands and Belgium came back in great form, up 17 per cent and 10 per cent respectively.

Eastern Europe was not to be outdone, with an extraordinary showing by Russia from where visitor numbers actually surged 42 per cent and from Poland, whose numbers rose 8 per cent.

“Spain, a major ready-to-wear manufacturing country, generated a 10 per cent increase in visitors, which was greatly appreciated by the exhibitors at the various fairs,” Messe Frankfurt noted.

“I was delighted to see that some countries, such as Spain and the Netherlands, have recovered their strength and are indisputably contributing to the strong economic performance of the fairs,” Scherpe observed. (AR)
