CARPI –Twelve foreign buyers for forty women’s wear and accessories companies. These are the figures of the second incoming event of 2016, promoted by Carpi Fashion System with the financial contribution of the Foundation CR Carpi and organized by Promec (organization for the internationalization of the Modena Chamber of Commerce ) in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce of Reggio Emilia. The group of buyers, coming from Japan, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Latvia and Lithuania were hosted in Carpi last 29 and the 30 November. In the halls of Palazzo dei Pio companies have showed their collections Autumn-Winter 2017-2018 with some supplementary models of the collections Spring-Summer 2017. «We are at the fifth edition and the companies are more and more increasing: this time 5 companies of the province of Reggio Emilia too took part to the event – explains Roberto Bonasi, president of Expomodena and manager of Cna Federmoda –. It has been therefore necessary to divide the exhibitors in two different activity days. In the morning they come to the Palace to look at the collections while in the afternoon, according to the b2b meetings results, they visit the companies which have raised their interest». «Buyers have been selected by Promec based on demand and supply prior evaluation, so as to maximise the effectiveness of contacts – says Federico Poletti, President of Lapam Moda –. Most of them work for chain stores of the medium- high segment which are interested in our quality standards».
This edition as well proved to be positive for supporting the development and internationalisation of small and medium-sized enterprises of the territory which, in their town, in an evocative location and at low cost, can get in touch with some important distributors, agents, importers and representatives of international retail chains (Cla.Ros)
