EVENTS – The courtyard of the Castle of Carpi has been the perfect setting for the event of incoming promoted by Carpi Fashion System.
CARPI – Twelve foreign professionals for 31 fashion companies. Here are the numbers of the incoming (the first for 2016) promoted by Carpi Fashion System thanks to the financial contribution of the CR Carpi Foundation and the organization of Promec. The group of buyers coming from United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Switzerland and South Korea arrived in the city on the 30 of May and left two days later. In the morning of the 31May the honour coutyard of the Palce of Pio hosted the fashion company stands welcoming the foreign buyers and showing collections and sets of samples. The suggestive location, with a simple but effective set up of mannequins in the center of the courtyard and the sunny weather have surely contributed to the success of the event, which has been really appreciated by the hosts. It’s the fourth time that Carpi Fashion System, as part of its programme of internationalization, organizes and realizes an incoming. Also this time the results have been positive for the SME’s of the district which, in their town, in a splendid setting and at very low costs, could get in touch with important distributors, agents, importers, and representatives of international retail chains. After the exhibition, introduced by a speech of Simone Morelli, councillor for Economic Policies and Trade of the City of Carpi, the “two days” continued with individual visitis of buyers directly at the companiers to deepen and conclude agreements and contracts.
At the helm of the organizational aspects there was Promec whose manager Anna Mazzali says: ” When we organize an Incoming our first action is to match the offer of the companies with the potentially interested customers and select them. Their origin is mainly from Europe but in each edition we also choose a extre EU Country, in this case South Korea”. The buyers showed a keen interest for the quality, style and creativity of the proposals; they also appreciated the welcome and the organization of all the details of their travel and stay. The company owners too were really satisfied and would like more than two events per year. “We are going to evaluate the feasibility” says Anna Mazzali. (Claudia Rosini)
