On September 24th, September 2021 ended at Fieramilano Rho Lineapelle, which sanctioned the return in the presence of the event and displayed a reassuring energy and positivity. An edition that has intercepted the growing interest of exhibitors and fielded a series of projects to make your trade fair experience ever more current and engaging.
More than 11,000 visitors, from over 70 countries, went to discover the collections for winter 2022/2023 presented by 725 exhibitors, demonstrating that the market has a concrete desire to rekindle the engines.
Lineapelle September 2021 reconfirmed itself as “the best place to be” for the search for materials for the manufacturing industry of fashion, accessories, design and automotive.
“An excellent restart – is the comment by Gianni Russo (Russo di Casandrino), president of the event -, with 725 exhibitors who have given life to a frenetic activity, presenting collections of the highest profile. We had a turnout that we never imagined could reach these levels. This gives us hope for a return to normality ”.
Lineapelle September 2021, a restart in style
The panorama of the origins of visitors is also significant, on which the international restrictions due to the management of the pandemic weighed this year.
In the top ten are Germany, France, Spain and Portugal. But non-EU countries (such as Switzerland and Turkey) also appear along with the United States. There was no shortage of representatives from manufacturing countries, such as China, Brazil and Vietnam, and buyers from strategic markets such as the Russian Federation, the United Arab Emirates and Japan.
For the organizers of Lineapelle September 2021, the project met expectations, making the event “an ongoing reference point for knowledge and deepening of the universe of responsibly innovative materials”.
The debut of “A New Point of Materials” was also good, where a selection of new generation leathers, materials and technologies was presented through the story of their entire production process. During the initiative, a series of talks on the green approach to production, corporate finance and retail were proposed, hosting international interlocutors who offered a new vision of the market and its needs.
The synergy with Mipel Lab
Excellent feedback for Mipel Lab, the sourcing exhibition developed by Assopellettieri together with Lineapelle in September 2021. “We could not have imagined a better debut – underlined the president of Assopellettieri, Franco Gabbrielli -. Our innovative exhibition format dedicated to Italian manufacturing excellence surprised everyone in terms of results, going beyond our wildest expectations. The 13 Italian companies of MIPEL Lab represent the true excellence of made in Italy leather goods: the most solid and healthy made in Italy. Just think of the fact that all 13 together are worth half a billion in turnover, with 4 million pieces produced per year and over 2,200 employees “.
