The largest country pavilions are Germany with ca. 3.000 square metres and Italy with ca. 2.500 square metres. CPM - COLLECTION PREMIERE MOSCOW has established itself in the Russian market and is used by exhibitors as well as visitors as a communication platform for the fashion business between Russia and Europe. Here, new contacts are made, old contacts are reacquainted and reliable distribution partners are sought and found. The continuous growth of the fair demands a steady flow of new ideas and changes in order to satisfy the growing number of exhibitors and their diverse needs. New sub-segments have been and are still being created to structure the event around focal points and more effectively reach target groups. The expansion of the new segments CPM Kids, Young Fashion and Lingerie - implemented at the last CPM - COLLECTION PREMIERE MOSCOW - is the focal point of the trade fair. CPM Kids is the 'who's who' of kid's and baby fashion and meets in hall 3.

The segment was successfully expanded and offers international associations a chance for new markets in Eastern Europe. First implemented in September 2005, the 'Young Fashion' segment has proven itself as a trade visitor magnet. Leading trend labels such as Scotch & Soda, Desam, Westland, Park in Town, Broadway, Yax, Albana, Elit TK, Hydepark, Churinga, Soda/Track, Ecolo Jeans and Miss Denim will show their collections on the upper level of hall 3. Right in the middle of CPM visitors will find everything for the attractive 'underneath'.

One highlight of CPM Lingerie is the interesting seminar programme on body and beachwear on the Russian market. The seminars are held in the Marmor Saal (Marble Hall) of the forum.

The daily CPM Catwalk in the Hall of Design, hall 4; the Spanish children's fashion show 'Children's Fashion from Spain' and the fashion show by renowned Russian designer Slava Zaitsev are only a few of the several highlights awaiting visitors of the fair.
