Perú Moda and Perú Moda Deco 2018, the country’s most important events in the clothing and decoration industry, exceeded its expectations by 11.9% thanks to the $120 million US dollars achieved in commercial commitments for the next 12 months, Promperú reported yesterday, according to Andina News Agency.
After holding a total of 3,158 business meetings during three days, this figure was able to be achieved.
“The event was held from April 25 to 27 at the Convention Center of Lima in order to promote business meetings of Peruvian companies and international buyers interested in the exportable supply of the sector”, Andina explained.
Perú Moda and Perú Moda Deco 2018 brought together 250 exporting companies, among which were SMEs from Arequipa, Cusco, Ayacucho, Junín, Puno, Piura, La Libertad, Huancavelica, Abancay, and Lima.
More than 8,340 visitors attended, many from foreign countries, such as importers, manufacturers, producers, distributors, sales agents, supermarkets, and retailers.
During the event, several forums were held on Sustainable Fashion, the Pacific Alliance and Market Trends, which attracted 1,600 people.
Andina said that according to a survey made to the participants, 91.9% agreed that the objective set in this event was met. In a timely manner, all participating companies would be willing to return for the next edition of the event.
Peru Moda and Peru Moda Deco had two fashion shows, organized by Promperú. In these, several collections were presented and were able to be recognized by exporting brands.
