PARIS — Feeling the bite of the global economic crisis, foreign retailer attendance for the recent Premiere Classe and concurrent Who’s Next trade shows here fell 29 percent, with the total number of visitors down 5 percent.
A citywide transport strike on the opening day contributed to the downturn, said a spokeswoman for the fairs, which ended a four-day run at the Porte de Versailles on Feb. 1. However, exhibitors were buoyed by a 10 percent increase in the turnout of French buyers.
