Published:  18 December, 2020

Traditionally held in March, the 2021 edition of Fimec (International Fair of Leather, Chemicals, Components and Equipment for Footwear and Tanneries) will now take place May 4 - 6, 2021, in Novo Hamburgo, Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul.

The alteration of dates follows requests from Fimec’s sectorial partners, who still had concerns about holding the tradeshow in March. They cited factors such as market instability in relation to raw material availability for assembling equipment, possible restrictions and difficulties pertaining to international travel, and the risk of low visitor numbers, according to the organisers. The 45th edition of Fimec will take place in a physical format.
