SIMAC TANNING TECH 2019. TOMORROW IS NOW

300+ exporting manufacturers and exhibition organisers are working to provide cutting-edge technological solutions to thousands of visitors from all over the world.

There are at least three good reasons not to miss Simac Tanning Tech 2019, the international exhibition of machinery and technology for the footwear, leather goods and tanning industries, on from 20 to 22 February at Fiera Milano Rho.

Reason One: Simac Tanning Tech is the largest exhibition worldwide for these production sectors, hosting 300+ exhibitors, some major international players, on an area of approximately 19,000 net square metres.

Reason Two: As is the norm, Simac Tanning Tech runs concurrently with the spring edition of Lineapelle, the foremost exhibition for leather and the whole sector supplying materials, components and accessories for global fashion and luxury goods. It will be showing the style trends for the Spring/Summer 2020 season.

Together, these two events are the most informative showcase worldwide, allowing manufacturers of footwear and leather goods the world over to see state-of-the-art technological and stylistic solutions that meet all their manufacturing needs. 

Reason Three: Simac Tanning Tech and Lineapelle are held in Milan, one of the global  capitals of technology, design and fashion, a constantly evolving metropolis that is always looking to the future.

Continuing the growth trend of the last leather-sector technology exhibition, the 2019 event is already fully booked. “The pavilion spaces are already sold out – says Gabriella Marchioni Bocca, Simac Tanning Tech President– but the applications keep flowing in.” 

Assomac Servizi CEO Amilcare Baccini has also confirmed that the approximately 19,000 m² space allocated to exhibitors has been filled and no more is available: “We still have applications from manufacturers eager to come to Milan but we are all sold out. No more space can be found. We have come up with alternative solutions that will yield more space but they can’t be implemented for this edition.”

The forthcoming Simac Tanning Tech will also look to the future and problems raised by energy and environmental issues, in particular.  The exhibiting manufacturers are all working to come up with innovative solutions that place efficiency and reducing any environmental impact at the heart of their technological offer.  

Companies turned towards high-performing, safe and eco-friendly technologiessome years ago– continues Gabriella Marchioni Bocca, Simac Tanning Tech President – and will keep pursuing them. Indeed, within the framework of sustainable production processes, the leather processing sector has grasped the need to adopt eco-friendly means and machinery. Given this drive and with its commitment to transparency, ASSOMAC has developed the “Supplier of Sustainable Technologies” project, of which the Green Label is the first concrete step. It is a voluntary scheme in which a third-party company certifies the CFP (carbon footprint) of machinery manufactured by member companies. The forthcoming exhibition will offer companies joining the scheme an opportunity to display and explain this badge of sustainable technology made in Italy.”

As well as featuring the finest traditional technology, Simac Tanning Tech will also be showing new machinery functions such as digital printing on leather, mixing the textile world with 3D printing and incorporating Industry 4.0 – for machinery that is more interconnected and smarter.

The 300+ exhibiting companies and the Simac Tanning Tech organisation are in full swing to offer an optimum exhibition visit, in all senses.

We look forward to seeing you at Fiera Milano Rho from 20 to 22 February 2019.

Arrivederci and see you soon!

Caro cliente e caro fornitore,

In questi giorni stiamo vivendo una situazione imprevedibile, complessa e con la quale non avremmo mai voluto confrontarci. Le imprese associate ASSOMAC, sia strutturate che di piccole dimensioni, sono messe a dura prova e si trovano obbligate a decisioni difficili in un contesto internazionale in continuo cambiamento.

In tutte le nostre aziende, dopo le disposizioni governative per una cessazione delle attività, è sempre più crescente la preoccupazione per la capacità di “resistenza dell’impresa” anche legate alle dotazioni finanziarie per rispettare le future scadenze di pagamento nella salvaguardia dei nostri collaboratori, fornitori e clienti. 

Riprendendo quanto scrive il presidente di Confindustria Vincenzo Boccia nella lettera ai presidenti delle Associazioni Confederate del 31 marzo scorso:

La tenuta del sistema economico e delle filiere dipende però anche da noi, dalla nostra etica della responsabilità e dai nostri comportamenti, per questo faccio un appello a tutte le nostre imprese e lo faccio riportando una frase di Stefano Scaglia, il nostro Presidente di Confindustria Bergamo, un territorio tra i più colpiti in questo momento, che ha dichiarato ieri: “Ogni impresa, indipendentemente dalla sua dimensione, categoria o settore merceologico, è funzionale alla sopravvivenza del nostro tessuto produttivo. Mantenere gli impegni presi nei pagamenti, salvo gravi e comprovate difficoltà, è la decisione che garantisce continuità a tutto il nostro sistema. Adesso è il momento della responsabilità sociale, possiamo e vogliamo essere il centro e i promotori della nuova rinascita”.

In questo momento le nostre imprese stanno cercando di fare il possibile per ottemperare a tutti gli impegni di pagamento nei confronti dei propri fornitori proprio per non incrinare rapporti commerciali storici e non alimentare un dannoso effetto domino.  

Fiduciosi che la collaborazione etica del mondo imprenditoriale unitamente al rispetto degli impegni presi consentirà una pronta ripartenza della filiera pelle e dell’intero sistema produttivo italiano.

Un caro saluto.

Presidente Assomac
Gabriella Marchioni Bocca
