Igedo Company has announced that 1,000 exhibitors will show at the next edition of CPM (Collection Première Moscow) from Sept. 6-9 at the Moscow Expocentre Fairgrounds.

With this, CPM will welcome fewer exhibitors than last September when 1,500 brands presented their collections.

“Although Russia suffers from the economic crisis, it still has great potential,” said CPM project manager Christian Kasch. “In those times, fairs as CPM are perfect transmitters and platforms for communication,” added Igedo CEO Philipp Kronen. “Fairs provide information, trends and inspiration for all retail sections.”

Brands such as Azzaro, Brunella & Anna Moura, Chavi, Dino Casagrande, Elisa Fanti, Flamenco, Les temps des cerises, Marc Cain, Nathalie Serge, Paz Torras, Scervino Street Girls and Versace Immagine are expected to exhibit at CPM.
