MONTREAL — After 31 years, the North American Fur and Fashions Exposition Montreal, held here April 28-30, is facing an uncertain future as a rival show that debuted two weeks earlier in Chicago kept many American buyers and exhibitors away.
NAFFEM featured fewer than 60 exhibitors, down from 100 a few years ago and 200 in 2000. By comparison, there were 54 exhibitors at the April 14 to 16 International Luxury Outerwear Expo in Chicago, including 13 from Canada.
