Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags

100th edition January 13-16, 2024

Organized by Riva del Garda Fierecongressi SpA, Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags - with 41 countries represented among the exhibiting companies, and many visitors from over 100 different countries - is the most important international  exhibition dedicated to volume footwear, leather goods and accessorise.



Its strong points:

  • strategic positioning of the two annual editions within the world trade fair calendar (first fair on the calendar)
  • significant degree of internationality among buyers and exhibitors
  • fair spread over the territory, with 10 different venues involved
  • complete marketplace for footwear and leather goods with Gardabags
  • located on Lake Garda, a territory with a dual business and leisure identity


Being the first appointment on the international trade fair calendar, the fair allows visitors to have a complete preview of new fashion trends, plan orders well in advance, and promptly identify changes in the footwear market.


A European crossroads of trade exchanges for the volume footwear sector, Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags is recognised by the major world production clusters as an ideal platform for meeting the vast international offer of this  product category. Companies and brands from the main manufacturing districts of Brazil, China, Germany, Great Britain, India, Italy, Pakistan, Portugal, Spain, South East Asia and Turkey make up the fair's offering.


Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags proposes a unique exhibition model that actively involves the Exhibition Centre, the Congress Centre and different hotels in Riva del Garda. A dynamic and interactive network that allows you to meet  multiple exhibition      needs, from those typical of the exhibition market to one-to-one meetings.


The grouping of Gardabags - the business hub dedicated to leather goods and accessories - and Expo Riva Schuh at the Exhibition Centre from June 2019 further strengthened the business potential of the two events and took the form of an even more comprehensive marketplace for the entire fashion world.


The setting of Lake Garda makes it possible to enhance the product range of Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags, harmonizing it with the excellence of the territory and suggesting a different way of conducting business: through meetings  and exchanges      with a business-leisure soul.
