The 28th edition of fabric-sourcing event Proposte came to a close yesterday, having attracted over 2700 visitors, states the show's organiser – of which more than 60% attended from outside Italy.

Belgium, France, Germany and Spain were the countries most represented, with consistent participation from Great Britain and the US.

“We are highly satisfied with the results obtained. At the stands you could tangibly feel the enthusiasm and the desire to do business in person. Everyone was doing what had been most missed these last months – touching fabrics and looking into each other’s eyes,” comments Piercarlo Viganò, Proposte’s president. “I agree with the exhibitors in saying that this edition has attracted to Villa Erba high-quality clients.”

The exhibition's GM, Massimo Mosiello, adds: “Once again I would like to thank our exhibitors who believed in the success of this edition of Proposte. Our thanks also go to the ICE Agency, that collected a great international delegation composed of 70 buyers from Europe and the USA – but, most of all, I wish to thank our staff for giving us its precious organisational support like never before.”

The 29th edition of Proposte will be held from 5-7th April 2023 at Villa Erba.
