Expo Riva Schuh 2018 will be held between January 13th and 16th in the Exhibition area of Fiereecongressi S.p.A. of Riva del Garda, in Trentino Alto Adige. It is a fair dedicated to the universe of footwear and reserved for professionals of the sector, from small retailers to large wholesalers and importers.
The fair will be attended by stands from all over the world (about 40 countries in total). Riva del Garda is one of the most popular Italian destinations for tourism. Expo Riva Schuh, for footwear professionals, represents an ideal opportunity to plan orders, update on the latest trends and spend a few days in contact with nature and postcard picture landscapes offered by Trentino Alto Adige and Riva del Garda, which boasts an unbeatable historic center.
Expo Riva Schuh is one of the most anticipated events in the area of Riva del Garda in Trentino Alto Adige. In 2018, more precisely in January, the 89th edition will be launched, on the success that has lasted for decades. The latest edition recorded staggering figures: over 11,224 trade visitors and 1464 exhibitors from all over the world. The exhibition areas are crowded every year by experts in the footwear sector hungry for novelties. But what exactly is it?
What is Riva Schuh?
Expo Riva Schuh is today’s leading international exhibition for volume production footwear at a mid-range price point. It is Europe’s most important event for this market segment.
It allows traders to keep up-to-date on the latest novelties in the footwear world and on market trends. Being an event that normally takes place in the first month of the year, among other things, it is the best way for traders to plan orders well in advance, which is why it is really appreciated.
Expo Riva Schuh: just for traders?
Given its purely commercial nature, Expo Riva Schuh is reserved for professionals in the sector. Bad news, therefore, for all Italian families looking for ideas on what to do in Riva del Garda. Good, however, for those who belong to the trade world: entry is guaranteed to owners of department stores, hypermarkets, mail order, buying groups and small chains. Access allowed also to wholesalers and large and small importers.
