Peru Moda 2019 generates over US$132 million in deals

08:00 | Lima, May. 22.

Peru Moda and Peru Moda Deco 2019 —which took place on April 10-12— closed business deals worth US$132.5 million, Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Edgar Vasquez informed.

"This figure represents a 10% increase from last edition's number, which amounted to US$119.9 million," the official expressed. 

According to Vasquez, who also serves as PromPeru's Governing Board Chair, this outcome benefits Peruvian textile industry's productive chain, especially small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by supporting their internationalization. 


Likewise, he indicated Peru Moda 2019 welcomed 4,062 visitors —3,073 nationals and 989 foreigners. Plus, it brought together 255 exporters of garments, footwear, accessories, jewelry, decoration, gifts, and services. 

These exporting companies made contact with 335 buyers from 27 countries. The most representative delegations were those from the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. 

Furthermore, 59% of foreign buyers arrived in Peru for the first time, which reflects their interest in the Peruvian textile industry.

International agenda 

"This year, a first-class international trade platform will be consolidated through Peru Moda Europa (Berlin) and Peru Moda United States (New York) takes place in July, as well as Peru Moda Asia in China, Japan, and South Korea in October," the Chairman said. 

Peru Moda 2020 

On the other hand, he announced Peru Moda and Peru Moda Deco 2020 will take place April 22-24 next year. 

Moreover, in 2021 —the Independence Bicentennial— Peru Moda will be held at the same time as Alapaca Fiesta. For that reason, PromPeru will sign an agreement with Alpaca's International Association (AIA) to organize both trade platforms. 

Peru Moda and Peru Moda Deco are organized by PromPeru with the support of the Foreign Trade and Tourism Ministry (Mincetur), the Foreign Affairs Ministry, the Association of Peruvian Exporters (Adex), the Lima Chamber of Commerce (CCL), and the National Society of Industries (SNI).
