SAPICA Spotlights on Made in Mexico

The latest edition of Sapica Mexico, the International Footwear and Leather Goods Exhibition, took place from August 28 th to 31 st , 2018, at Poliforum León: the trade show brought together under the same roof brands and manufacturers who put on display their new footwear, bags and small leather goods collections – a varied, top-quality product portfolio that managed to catch the attention of buyers and professionals proceeding not only from Mexico, but also from abroad, on the lookout for fashionable creations as well as for profitable business and networking opportunities. As per tradition, the organizers arranged an eclectic programme comprising several complementary activities, thus providing a comprehensive visit experience. One of the highlights of the fair was undoubtedly the cycle of seminars and lectures held within the framework of the Knowledge Pavilion, as confirmed by the positive feedback and by the high turnout levels: renowned experts shared their experiences, opinions and insights concerning some of the most topical industry issues, the latest fashion and market trends – a wide range of quality, thought-provoking contents. “The Knowledge Pavilion has become one of our main assets: a space for debate, creativity and learning.

As a matter of fact, we strongly believe that this is the right path in order to truly develop and enhance the potential of our companies,” stated Luis Gerardo González García, president of CICEG (Cámara de la Industria del Calzado del Estado de Guanajuato). Equally successful, the latest edition of “México es Moda”, an initiative that, as confirmed by the president himself, perfectly embodies Sapica’s mission, that is, to put on display the talent, competitiveness and skills of local manufacturers, as well as their ability to forge sustainable and global business relations, in front of an international audience. The world’s ninth largest producer as well as the fourth supplier of shoes to the USA, Mexico has been establishing itself as a reliable partner to companies, buyers and professionals worldwide on the hunt for finely crafted articles featuring a sophisticated design and a competitive price/quality ratio: in this context, Sapica Mexico has grown into the ideal showcase for the promotion and enhancement of the excellence, creativity and of the values of Mexican manufacturing. The next edition of Sapica Mexico is set to take place from March 12 th to 15 th , 2019.
