Second Playfashion live talk by Expo Riva to focus on retail
Expo Riva Schuh and Gardabags return to the analysis of the most pressing and current issues for the footwear and accessories sectors, with a focus on the world of retail and changes in purchasing habits
“2020 retail update, new formats & spaces” is the theme of the second talk in the #PLAYfashion series of live talks, an in-depth space that supports and strengthens the exhibition organised by Riva del Garda Fierecongressi.

The debate is scheduled to take place next Tuesday and will count with the presence of Maria Eugenia Errobidarte, Senior Consultant for WGSN Mindset, and Enrico Cietta, economist and CEO of Diomedea. The two have been entrusted with the task of analysing the current scenario and the future prospects of the retail sector. The role of e-commerce and social media, the interaction between the physical shop and the virtual space, the growing importance of off-store spaces, the purchasing experience in constant evolution are in the agenda of many of us. "The aim of this live talk is to look deeper into the retailers’ strategies and offer new retail sales experiences through the various physical and virtual distribution channels", the organisers said.  

Transmitted via direct streaming, in Italian and English, the live talk will be open for companies, buyers, representatives and trade bodies and associations as well as workers and journalists.

“Following the success of the first talk in July, which enabled us to take a snapshot of the world’s footwear production trends, we now want to analyse what is happening in the retail arena, via direct testimonials from sector experts. Looking to the future, discovering opportunities that provide visual and digital innovation to distribution and analysing the latest retail news are important issues for our exhibitors and visitors, and it is with them that we want to share useful information and strategic tips”, commented Alessandra Albarelli, Managing Director of Riva del Garda Fierecongressi.
