“The scepticism was unfounded,” was how organisers summed up the Russian fashion fair CPM – Collection Première Moscow that drew to a close last Saturday. With 18,500 registered trade visitors the decline in attendance was only 4% and exhibitors were satisfied with the orders taken all the same.
The Russian market is currently in motion – and also holds the potential for change. 25 renowned new Russian manufacturers, for example, exhibited for the first time. Trade visitors from 38 countries, also including Ukraine, came to CPM. Thus the CPM remains clearly the most important order platform for Eastern Europe. As a result of all of this it can be inferred that the Russian market continues to be one worth focusing on.
