The next editions of Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags will be held from 14 to 17 January 2023 and from 17 to 20 June 2023.
They should be excellent opportunities for the industry to get together, in light of the results of the last show and the enthusiasm shown by brands and manufacturers who are already planning to attend both events.
The new incoming actions implemented by the show to strengthen international participation at the event received a very positive response. Agreements with exhibitors and buyers from South East Asia, India, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia have already been concluded. Likewise, delegations from the US, Canada and Latin America have confirmed they will attend, while, in Europe, the focus will be on Scandinavian countries and the UK, which will host the return of “Expo Riva Schuh Around the World”, an event dedicated to British distributors.
Innovative and successful initiatives will also continue, including the Hybrid Service, which will enable numerous companies from China and other countries from where travel is still restricted to play a part; Innovation Village Retail, a pioneering project dedicated to innovation in distribution that has already boosted the international visibility of emerging start-ups; and the focus on Sustainability, particularly on traceability issues, considered key to finding, promoting and enhancing the value of companies that are making considerable investments to ensure their business is more environmentally- and people-friendly.
