Published:  20 March, 2015

In an interview with ILM during the recent fair, Assomac Vice-President, Gabriella Bocca says that the relocation of the show to Milan has been a major success. The fair, which took place February 25-27 alongside Lineapelle, was 25% larger than the previous edition in 2013.

In a general statement Assomac (Association of Italian Footwear, Leather Goods and Tannery Machinery Makers), has confirmed its intentions to run the show again in February 2016.

“The move to Milan was key to this year’s international success – says Amilcare Baccini, CEO of Simac Tanning Tech and Assomac. But due credit also goes to the companies, which had faith in the major change we all embarked on together. The three-day event showcased the leading technology worldwide for the leather-fashion industry. Our strength lies in innovation and exhibitor client relationships. The challenge for the future is to continue along the same route and produce an ever more comprehensive event in terms of technology offer and response to visitor demands.”
