Industry Relevance

Expo Riva Schuh dates back to the start of the 1970s as the very first edition of the event was held at Riva del Garda, Italy in 1974. Because shoes are a seasonal item, the trade fair takes place twice a year and right now the event is at its 92nd edition. With so many successful editions under its belt, it’s no surprise that Expo Riva Schuh has climbed to the top as the chief market for footwear in Europe, though there is a strong interest from retailers and buyers from outside Europe. Another reason why you should consider attending this event above all else is the fact that it sits first in the industry calendar, giving you the element of surprise when you present a collection!

Who Are You Going to Meet?

To understand just how international Expo Riva Schuh is we have to look at the data – out of the 1455 exhibitors to showcase last edition, only 287 were of Italian origin. This means that most collections came from abroad. Although European manufacturers were present, the event tends to be dominated by India, China, and Brazil. All three countries are distinct as powerhouses in shoe manufacturing. Exhibitors can be summed in the following categories – manufacturing suppliers, agents, importers and exporters, and direct manufacturers. Visitors come from Italy, Greece, Spain and Poland, if we’re talking about Europe. Other regions include United States, Canada, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
