The international trade fair for bags, fashion accessories and leather goods manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors

Bags, accessories and business. In short, 'Gardabags', the event where the future of fashion collections takes shape and the most important manufacturing districts in the world meet the market, in the evocative setting of Lake Garda.

A careful selection of more than 80 companies specialising in leather goods and accessories, further enhanced by the innovative concept that inspired the redevelopment of Pavilion D of the Riva del Garda Exhibition Centre, the new exclusive location of the event.

Gardabags coincides with Expo Riva Schuh twice a year, in January and June, the leading international trade fair for volume footwear.

The resulting synergy turns this event for suppliers and distributors into an international business hub and a comprehensive opportunity to keep professionally updated.

We met buyers coming from Russia, Belgium, Greece, France, Germany and an important buyer from Turkey. The first thing they ask for is the price, but there should be something special that attracts their attention.

We are satisfied with our participation in Gardabags and we will definitely join the next edition: last time we got a big client from Romania and now we are dealing with an important Polish company.

We met many foreign buyers coming from Holland, Germany and Russia. They are interested in Made in Italy and in authentic leather production. Beside the competitive price, post-sales service and on-time deliveries play an important role.
