Expectations rise for the next edition of Fimec
The organisers of the “largest leather-footwear trade fair in Latin America” say that the next edition, to be held from the 12th to the 14th of March, “will be the biggest in recent years”
Under the motto “Innovation, Technology and Positive Impact in the World”, the 47th Fimec (International Fair of Leather, Chemicals, Components, Machines and Equipment for Footwear and Tanneries) will bring together the leather and footwear sector from the 12th to the 14th of March 2024, at Fenac, in Novo Hamburgo, Brazil.

Visitors from over 30 countries will be able to see new products, including hides and leathers, chemicals, components, machinery and technology, in an exhibition area of around 14 000 square metres, creating business opportunities across all sectors.

“Fimec 2024 is already shaping up to be the biggest trade fair in the last 10 years in terms of exhibition area, reaching almost 14 000 square metres, which means we’ll have even more exhibitors and more news next year”, emphasises Marcio Jung, Fenac’s CEO. “This is an international event that is an important business driver for the cluster, contributing to economic development that goes far beyond the region and the state, impacting all of Brazil and different countries”, he concludes.

Organised by the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry  (CICB) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil), this space will promote the presentation of ideas, directions and innovations for the leather chain by market experts.
