This Forum will be located alongside the stands at the fair in the Connecting Area between Halls 12 and 14. At previous editions, all of the events and conferences staged in this area were warmly welcomed by the professionals attending the fair.
Throughout its duration, SIMM will be open from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm, except for the last day of the fair when the timetable shall be 9.30 am to 6.00 pm.
A Joint Event in September 2013
The February 2013 edition of the fair will be the last that SIMM stages on its own. In this respect, its next edition in September 2013 will be held jointly with MODACALZADO+IBERPIEL, the International Footwear and Leather Goods Fair, as part of a new project that seeks to boost the event's competitiveness and appeal vis-à-vis buyers and Spanish and foreign companies operating within a new trading context worldwide.
In short, the trend in recent years has been to offer clothing items and footwear in the same establishment, making up what is known as a total look. This is one of the main reasons that have led IFEMA to set up this new joint fair project.
