With still three months to go before its staging, the exhibition space for the trade show is practically sold out, featuring clothing, footwear and accessory companiesThe current contracting rate for the third staging of MOMAD METROPOLIS, the International Fashion Trade Show, an event organised by IFEMA, presents a highly promising outlook.
