The organizers of the new Expo Riva Schuh Middle East fair near Dubai are "resonably satisifed" with its results, although some adjustments will be required in the future. They report a total of 1,470 visitors from 41 countries, but say they would have been more if MICAM had not advanced its dates. Among the 250-plus brands showing at the fair, those in the medium-high segment were generally not happy. They include some 30 companies from the Marche region of Italy, whose presence was subsidized by local authorities.
