A good business mood prevailed at the 17th edition of LE CUIR A PARIS. From the very first day, the prestigious names of the fashion sector came to discover the material offer for the autumn/winter 2010-11 season.

336 exhibitors from 25 different countries showcased on a total surface of 10 000 m². Amongst them, 43 exhibitors participated for the fist time at this September edition.

In terms of geographical breakdown, Italy leads the top ten with 44% of the total exhibiting area followed by France 20% and Spain 11%. To be noted, the first-time presence of Mexico with three companies: Interpiel Exotic, Novotech Exotic and l'ANPIC (Association of Suppliers for the Shoe Industry).

Albeit the international economic slowdown, the organizers of LE CUIR A PARIS are proud of the visitors' number registered during the 4 days of the show. In fact, these are up by 5% in comparison to September 2008, that is, a total of 13 412 visits. Some countries registered a significant increase such as Germany, France, The Netherlands and the UK.

Feedback received from exhibitors show that these results exceeded their expectations. They were not only satisfied with visitors' flow but also the quality of sample requirements and orders.

"We have metout major clients, Italians and French, from the top quality sector but the mid range was also present. The mood is correct and the motion linked to the whole of PREMIERE VISION PLURIEL is reassuring. We find that buyers are really concentrating on their heart of the market since the last season", explains Marc Deyber from Tanneries HAAS, France.

Mr Suat Sen de Sen Deri (Turkey), a world leader of double face, participated for the first time in LE CUIR A PARIS.If the company had limited expectations before exhibiting, they were satisfied with the contacts made as well as visitors' profile. "Of course, we are living a difficult economic period for the sector but it's temporary. We wish to diversify our production and LE CUIR A PARIS enables us to do so. I also think that leather is part of the textile sector and the formula of PREMIERE VISION PLURIEL is successful".

"We are impressed by the quality of LE CUIR A PARIS and I believe that nowadays we can no longer expect to simply sell in the trade fairs. This sales approach is changing and I think that the quality of contats made during a fair is very important. The actual sale only takes place much later.", outlines Mr Oscar Murrieta from ANPIC (Mexico).

On the visitors' side the quality of the show is also appreciated. LE CUIR A PARIS is "a show rich in leather novelties but also in textiles. The dates are perfect to prepare our collections", affirms Ms Ysia Ferrion, Junior Leather Goods Product Manager for NINA RICCI.

The buyers from the leather sector were also present at this edition. Mr Angel Gomez from the Spanish tannery INCUSA confirms this: "The show's dates are perfect for the shoe manufacturers. Also, LE CUIR A PARIS acts as a screen for us. We finalize our collections based on what happened in Paris"
