Dear Members,

Sub: Inviting Participation in the Poznan Fashion Fair, Poland (February 19-20, 2020), on SELF FINANCING basis

About the Fair

Poznan Fashion Fair is one of the most important fashion events in Poland, which allows entrepreneurs to establish new business contacts and provides opportunities to purchase fashionable collections. Compared to other events related to the fashion industry in the Country, the Fair is a perfect place for business contracts with exhibitors participating in the event. The show is organized by MTP Grupa, Poland and is being promoted by Comnet Exhibitions Pvt. Ltd. in India.

Poznan Fashion Fair means a wide range of interesting stylish proposals and new trends for the coming season. The variety of brands presented at the Fair offers the possibility of finding interesting products for large retail chains, as well as small boutiques and multi brand stores. The event will surely be attended by online shop owners, looking for interesting styling solutions for their companies. The international nature of the event is confirmed by foreign exhibitors coming from such countries as Bangladesh, the Czech Republic, France, India, Sweden, Ukraine and Italy. The most numerous group of exhibitors will be, however, the group from Poland, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Iran, Greece, Russia and the UK.

Trade Scenario in the Footwear & Leather Sector

Poland imported Footwear, leather and leather products worth USD 3604.53 million during 2018-19.           Major item of their import was Footwear (USD 2748.86 million), followed by finished leather, leather goods and leather garments.   Whereas, India has exported footwear, leather and leather products worth USD 115.02 million during 2018-19, holding a share of 3.19% in the overall import by Poland.   It is pertinent mention that India holds a share of 7.33% in the import of leather footwear by Poland and approx 6% in the import of leather goods and accessories.           Hence there exist enormous opportunities for the Indian exporters to enhance their share of export to Poland.
