People often celebrate victories or achievements. In the case of the 50th edition of SIMAC TANNING TECH, a success story is celebrated with the awareness that the past behind us must serve as a springboard towards the future.

Agostino Apolito, Director of ASSOMAC, the event’s organisers, explains it well: ‘In a difficult and complex economic moment to decipher, we believe that recovery can only come from getting to know better and better the various international markets in which we are present by weaving ever closer relations with market players and, together with them, looking to the future.

That is why the celebration of the 50th edition of the fair will be marked by events capable of promoting international connections and relations. Such as the Gala Evening on 18 September, which will be an opportunity for the approximately 300 guests to develop increasingly effective networking with the different souls that inhabit the panorama of technology and innovation in the footwear, leather goods and leather sectors. The dinner will also give guests the opportunity to attend a talk that will provide brief insights into the influence and repercussions that current geopolitical movements will have on the fashion industry, seeking to illuminate possible future scenarios and prospects.

The initiative planned for 17 September together with The European House – Ambrosetti is also along the same lines: a moment of encounter and comparison between technology suppliers and the most important brands in the fashion sector.

“We want to interpret the mission of the fair in a broad sense and offer more and more occasions that help the upstream supply chain to get to know the needs of the players that are directly confronted with the demands of the market”.

There will be no shortage of opportunities to recall the past thanks to a celebratory supply chain exhibition that tells the story and the evolutions of the last 50 years of technological innovations, components and materials as well as finished products.

“We want to illustrate the immense value of the complex work that the entire fashion supply chain carries out day after day. We want to talk about a history that has always looked to the future. These 50 years of trade fairs have taught us that to imagine tomorrow there is no other way but to open up to the market. This is why we have thought of an edition of SIMAC TANNING TECH that will allow the 100-plus international delegates attending the fair to meet and get to know each other better so that together we can imagine a future of development and growth. As ASSOMAC we particularly want to meet the many countries where we are well established – I am thinking of India, Vietnam, Pakistan and South America. But we also want to exploit the synergy with other concurrent events in the industry to open new channels with other markets, such as the United States. Probing new opportunities in markets with an important industrial fabric and that might need our technologies”.
