Seven companies from the Brazilian component and machinery sectors will participate in the Lineapelle and Simac Tanning Tech fairs, taking place in Milan from September 20 to 22.

The companies are: OTB, Formas Kunz, SystemHaus, NBN, Michelom, Bremm Peck and Tubox Magma.

Luiz Ribas Júnior, Assintecal International Market Manager, said: “Companies in the sector are aware of this good moment for Brazilian exports and are looking for international events with great potential, such as fairs in Italy, which receive thousands of visitors from some of the main footwear markets in the world.

“In last year’s editions, companies generated more than US$2 million, a number that is expected to grow after the next fair.”
