The official announcement confirms the relocation of the biggest European fair in the tanning industry to Italy’s fashion capital.

However, there are still some outstanding issues that still have to be resolved with BolognaFiere, which is reported to own around 48% of the shares in the fair. Previous media reports from Italy have suggested that they might consider legal action against the fair relocating from Bologna to Milan despite the majority of the Lineapelle shareholders narrowly voting in favour to relocate at a board meeting in late March.

UNIC will begin today preparations for the next edition of the show for the Autumn/Winter 2015-16 season.
