Comments Olga Nikolaeva, Marketing Director MosShoes: "We positively assess the results of the March exhibition. MosShoes reflects the current state of the market, which is currently experiencing stagnation. However, interest in working in the industry is not falling, new brands and companies are emerging. The total number of exhibitors was more than 400 companies from 22 countries, while 24% of the participants who presented their collections at MosShoes took part in the exhibition for the first time. There is also a tendency among visitors to "update" the audience, 43% of the guests came to the exhibition for the first time.

The exhibition MosShoes aims not only to unite all participants of the leather and shoe industry. Each exhibition presents new projects and popular topics for discussion to visitors and exhibitors. So, within the framework of the March exhibition, an updated trend zone was presented, where both visitors and exhibitors could get acquainted with the key trends of the upcoming season. The trend zone helps buyers in the formation of the assortment, and gives exhibitors directions for further formation of the production cycle. In addition, for the first time, an exposition was presented that united logistics and transport companies. Related services are always in demand by both buyers and manufacturers, so the appearance of a separate service exposition is logical and natural.

The quest "The Road to childhood" was held for participants representing children's and adolescent shoes. As part of the game, it was necessary to visit certain stands and answer questions, and then take part in the drawing. The quest was held for the first time, but the organizing committee of the exhibition promises to continue it and make it larger in September, covering other segments of the exposition. For exhibitors, participation in the quest will give additional targeted traffic, and for visitors the opportunity to get acquainted with new brands and learn more about the technologies used and the advantages of a particular brand.
