Some shows on while others cancelled
Simac Tanning Tech organiser Assomac has announced its intention to proceed with the 2021 edition of the footwear, leathergoods and tanning industries machinery and technologies event, having shifted the event from the first quarter of the year to the third. Simac Tanning Tech 2021 Is now scheduled to take place in Milan from September 22nd to 24th as a face-to-face exhibition with all necessary health precautions in place.
In contrast, the Fimec exhibition in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil will not be held in 2021. Intended originally to take place between March 9th and 11th, the organisers decided at the end of last year to move the leather, chemicals, components and equipment exhibition to May of this year, hoping that by then the COVID-19 pandemic would have abated sufficiently to relaunch a live fair. However, they have now advised that ‘contrary to expectations, the situation with the pandemic in Brazil has worsened considerably’, so the next Fimec is planned to open its doors in March 2022.
