“This edition of Pitti Bimbo 97 Firenze – was the immediate comment of the CEO of Pitti Raffaello Napoleone at the closing of the 97th edition of the event, from 21 to 23 June in the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, underlining in particular the retention of visitors coming from abroad. The turnout of buyers, which overall should reach 2,000, is in line with that of last summer”.
The CEO also recalled how the numbers of shops and points of sale remained at the same levels, thus confirming the purchasing power of the operators who attended, even if at the end of the three days we will have a hundred less registered buyers, in particular from Italy.

“The feedback collected on the stands in recent days – added Napoleone – underlines the quality of the buyers present at Pitti Bimbo 97 Firenze and their internationality, an element that is currently the decisive driving force for the turnover of kidswear companies. We are aware that this is a complex phase for the market and for companies, which is why applause goes to the 230 exhibitors who took part: despite the objective difficulties, with their collections at the Fortezza they demonstrated a decisive drive towards creativity, and a ‘increasingly marked attention to the values of quality, green, health and authenticity’.
