Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags Will Happen Sooner Than You Think

After careful consideration and consultation with all stakeholders involved, Riva del Garda Dierecongressi has announced the new dates for the next edition of Expo Riva Schuh and Gardabags.

The event will now take place on December 11th through to 14th 2020.

The decision to reschedule the exhibitions calendar by brining the January exhibition forward to December is not only due to the uncertain times we are faced with, but it also highlights the positive impulse for the companies in this sector towards a return to commercial exchange at an international level.

The event will facilitate the re-activation of the supply chain while also encouraging a revival both from a business and an informative point of view. These two expos aim to enhance meetings and dialogue between the various links in the chain.

“We are talking about a fundamental interaction to relaunch the supply chain. Furthermore, the time frame, which is unique in the volume footwear and accessory sector, will make it possible to present the Autumn/Winter 2022 collections well in advance,” said Roberto Pellegrini, Chairman of Riva Del Garda Fierecongressi.

The event will occur by following safety protocols established by the authorities concerned. Strict sanitisation procedures for all areas are planned together with the use of PPE.

“In order to keep the relationship alive between all our various community members during the months that keep us apart until the next edition of Expo Riva Schuh and Gardabags, we have planned a whole series of webinars dedicated to this sector. It will provide a means of closing the gap, enabling us to further enforce the tight network of international relationships that have always formed the strategic advantage of the event and will provide operators with a tool for monitoring and interpreting market trends,” said Alessandra Albarelli, Managing Director of Riva del Garda Fierecongressi.
