The international fair dedicated to leather, footwear components and machinery, organised by the Spanish Association of Footwear Component Manufacturers, focused in its latest edition on the Fall-Winter 2020-21 season.
311 exhibitors (+ 5% compared to the past) took part in the event, representing 429 companies (69% of which were Spanish, while 31% were foreign firms, coming from countries like Italy, Portugal, Brazil, China, Germany, France, Turkey, Holland and India).
The product sector of the items exhibited at the fair saw component companies (of soles, ornaments, heels …) take the leading position with 38%, followed by 29% of tanneries and 18% of weavers. Another 9% of the space was occupied by machinery (the sector that recorded the greatest growth occupying 2.500 m2 exhibition space), 3% by chemical companies and 3% by printing firms.
The success of the event was decreed by the good number of visitors who took part in it: about 6,000 (in line with the previous editions), for the most part (80%) representatives of the national market, while foreign visitors came mainly from Portugal, Italy, France, Morocco, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Turkey, Austria. United Kingdom and USA.
The presence of footwear manufacturers from Colombia who have accepted the invitation of the organisers, in collaboration with IVACE, was remarkable and very satisfying.
In this round too the fair focused on respect for the environment, strengthening its commitment in the Green Planet Area, the space in which a wide range of eco-compatible products is concentrated.
The organisers of Futurmoda are already at work for the next edition of the event which will be held on 11 and 12 March 2020, at the opening of the Spring-Summer 2021 season.
