The organizing Committee of the international exhibition CPM –Collection Premiere Moscow is actively preparing for the next season. Fashion industry experts will meet at the Moscow Expocenter from September 4-7, 2018 to present and order collections of the spring-summer 2019 season.
The 30th anniversary season of CPM has shown record results both in terms of the number of participants and in terms of the statistics of attendance at the exhibition, the coverage of the event in the press and the number of pre-signed applications from exhibitors for the next season. But the organizers decided not to stop there.
In 2017, the rights to the exhibition CPM were obtained by the company Messe Duesseldorf Moscow, in connection with which many legal aspects of cooperation with a number of partners have changed, including the largest French company;exhibition company Eurovet, organizer of Salon International de Lingerie. Nevertheless, the segment of beach and lingerie fashion, as before, will be included in the CPM exposition and will continue to present new collections at stands, in the trend zone and in the format of catwalk shows. The section will return the name CPM Body & Beach, and its relaunch will allow implementing a number of initiatives aimed at increasing the efficiency of dozens of exhibitors and thousands of visitors. Lingerie and beach fashion collections will be presented by manufacturers from Germany, Italy, France, Russia and many other countries, and the exposition, as always, will be accompanied by a rich business program, including reports on trends, business planning, sales and retail activities. Communication with the participants of the underwear market will be developed by the special project CPM City Scouts, aimed at personal presentations to owners and managers of segment trading companies in major cities of Russia. The Top Buyer program will focus on such buyers in September, the organizers will invite more than 200 buyers of premium boutiques of the segment to visit the exhibition with the possibility of holding negotiations and coffee breaks in a special space CPM Gold Club.
