Milanese trade show Micam is moving its dates to mid-week for the spring 16 exhibition, meaning it will show from Tuesday September 1 to Friday September 4.
The footwear show was traditionally held from Sunday to Wednesday that same week.
Cleto Sagripanti, president of Micam, said the decision was reached as a result of ongoing dialogue with companies and buyers.
The next edition of Micam will run from Sunday February 15 to Wednesday 18 at the Fiera Milano exhibition centre. It was traditionally held in March.
Sagripanti said the changes “will allow us to strengthen Micam’s international role, and the event’s new structure will have a positive impact for everyone involved.”
