31.2% of sales in this sector are due to sales in foreign markets such as Italy, Portugal and United Arab Emirates, the main recipients of Spanish children’s fashion and childcare.
With the creation of this new fair, many Spanish brands that previously participated in international fairs, have the opportunity to return to show their creations in their own country.
