MILAN — “The leather goods’ business is less dented by the current economy, compared to others. We expect the September edition of Mipel to be a strong one, although the market has proved not particularly positive,” said Riccardo Braccialini, president of Assopellettieri, Italy’s leather manufacturers association, in unveiling the September edition of Mipel TheBagShow here.
Running Sept. 16 to 19, the upcoming edition of the trade show will host around 300 exhibitors showcasing their spring 2019 collections and is expected to attract more than 12,000 visitors. Braccialini was confident in projecting the number of buyers as he explained the trade show organizers are “already sensing a lot of interest and positive feedback.”
