Today, September 9th, Mipel The Digital Show opens with the online platform Mipel The Digital Show. A great digital appetizer for the 120th edition of the leather goods’ fair, which will be held physically from September 19th to the 21st in Pavilion n.1 of Fiera Milano-Rho. An edition named Mipel Play, to recall the world of sports. Inside the pavilion will be a staging that will reproduce an athletics track, tennis and basketball courts. Meanwhile, Assopellettieri announced new initiatives in the USA and Korea.
Mipel The Digital Show at a “strategic time”
“Mipel continues to represent a strategic time that is specifically valuable for the segment – explains Franco Gabbrielli, president of the fair -. Buyers and companies, particularly the smaller ones that suffered the most during the difficult times, need to continue compare their ideas and approaches, update each other on new trends, take inspirations, meet and do business together”. “Mipel is a great demonstration of the faith everyone has for the leather goods segment”, adds general director Danny D’Alessandro. The show develops on 2,500 square meters, occupied by about 80 brands: “Surely a smaller amount, compared to normal times, but still similar to those of the past September”, continues Mr. D’Alessandro. Some key buyers of Italian leather goods will be missing unfortunately due to restrictions, such as those from China, Japan and South Korea.
And then there’s Mipel Lab
Mipel Lab will be held with the collaboration of Lineapelle and inside the latter’s fair space, during September 22nd – 24th. The “phygital” platform was created to put all global brands in contact with the best manufacturers of Italian leather goods. Meanwhile, Assopellettieri’s initiatives are going beyond national borders. From September 13th till the 24th, the fair Italian Handbags and Accessories Collective will be hosted inside a local showroom during the New York fashion week. 13 leather goods companies will be present. In South Korea, on the other hand the 10th edition of Mipel Leather Goods Showroom will take place in Seoul on October 12th – 14th.
