Innovation Village Retail: What is it?

A show within a show, an exhibition village open to startups, companies, institutions and professionals, designed to share the culture of innovation and create networking and business opportunities between emerging companies and established players: Innovation Village Retail is the project created by Riva del Garda Fierecongressi in partnership with Retail Hub, and with the scientific coordination of Alberto Mattiello, member of the Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags  Scientific Committee.

It is an important opportunity for show exhibitors and visitors, who will be the first to see innovations in the footwear and accessories sector, through the projects exhibited by start-ups and young companies in a dedicated space.


Innovation Village is not only an exhibition area but also an opportunity for the startups to pitch and talk about their product or service in front of the Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags public and a jury of industry experts.  The company that wins the Start-up Competition will be able to take part in the next edition of the show as an exhibitor.
