Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

See all the shoes and bags that you weren’t able to admire in person at Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags!

On 18th & 19th February2021, log onto the Swapcard platform to discover the footwear and leather goods collections offered by the exhibitors who took part in the Home Edition of Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags, presented by a group of industry experts.

Visiting trade fairs is important to develop both old and new contacts, to understand what the market is looking for and to place orders. But first and foremost, it’s important to be able to touch the products with your hands, in order to evaluate the quality, the style and the colours. We all know that this year it wasn’t possible to appreciate the exhibitors’ new collections in person, and so, Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags have decided to help international buyers out by organising two days of online presentations of a selection of products that the exhibitors would have brought to the fair.

Short webinars, each one focused on a particular product type, will provide the audience of buyers with an easy way to discover the categories that interest them most and examine the new products, albeit at a distance.

Once the buyers have identified the right products for their customers, they can then, via the Swapcard platform where the streaming will take place, take a look at the rest of the collection in the Shoecase section. Then, they can contact the suppliers, request further information and complete their orders.

Here are the product categories which will be featured in the presentations on February 18th and 19th, 2021, and which will subsequently be available on demand on Swapcard: 


Day 1

Classic formal man & woman

Comfort & casual woman

Sneakers woman

Boots woman

Sports & outdoor woman


Day 2

Home man & woman

Summer woman & Work & Safety

Comfort & Casual man & Boots man

Sneakers man

The method is simple and immediate, led by a carefully chosen group of industry experts, who will talk about the products with a concrete, market-oriented approach.

Sergio Belloni (designer and trend researcher), Milena Buttarello (product manager), Alice Masiero (buyer and collection merchandiser) and Maurizio Oliviero (product sourcing) will describe the various product categories, pointing out the style ideas, the production merits, the target market, the price and attention to sustainability, positioning each presentation within the current market context, taking into consideration the main trends of the moment.

Don’t miss the chance to view the best samples from the forthcoming fashion collections selected by the companies who exhibit at the fair and to listen to the comments and product analyses of the products by the Showroom fashion experts. And get to know new and potential suppliers directly.

This initiative forms part of the broadest strategy ever undertaken by Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags. The aim is to integrate the trade fair offering with fast, solid tools that are capable of supporting the sector’s main requirements in the future and all year long: to acquire information; evaluate the collections; stay in touch with suppliers and complete orders.
