Simultaneously, MIPEL International Leather Goods Show was also held at the same location. The large number of exhibitors from all around the world participated in the premier international fairs.The exhibits included Autumn/Winter collections of latest fashion and technology.

The leather goods fair emphasis was on creative flair and technical skills of artisans and manufacturers. The exhibits included both leather and non-leather materials.

According to Mr. Rajeev Lakhara, IRS, President, SMART, “The fair was a perfect platform to know the latest international trends besides enabling the buyers to view the most
comprehensive range of products of the artisans/ micro-entrepreneurs which being handcrafted, were different in design and superior in get-up.”

MICAM The ShoEvent was attended by 1,611 exhibiting companies, 572 of them foreign, who presented their new collections covering a net surface area of 72,474 square metres.

The products displayed at the stall of SMART were an amalgamation of traditional and contemporary styles which included Mojari (handcrafted jooties), sandals and chappals. The collection was very well appreciated by the buyers and was able to evoke interest among the buyers.

There were some buyers from Tiwan & China as well who stated that there is a demand of Indian leather in their country. The people in these countries want to have a product which is of Indian leather. It was indeed a great fair. Some of the flat lasted footwear exhibits were manufactured without insole.
