New Trade Fair Slated for 2004

A new international trade fair for personal accessories will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, March 5-8, 2003. The fair, titled “Passione,” will bring together complementary product groups including bags, cases, luggage, small leather goods, jewelry, watches, eyewear, hats, lingerie and hosiery, belts, handbags, writing implements, luxury food and drink products, smoking accessories, and men’s gifts. Four theme worlds—”Unique,” “Body Culture,” “Club Life,” and “On the Move”—will provide an overview of the whole range, organizing the product portfolio according to life situations and occasions.

“Passione” will make its debut during International Frankfurt Beauty Week, and will be launched jointly with three other trade shows: “Beautyworld” (perfumery, drug stores, cosmetics, and hairdressing), “Lifetime” (wellness and spa), and “COSMETICA” (cosmetic institutes and beauty salons).
