Launched in 1962, MIPEL is the world’s leading international leather-goods show: bags, luggage, sacks, wallets and the full spectrum of leather accessories. MIPEL has always been at the forefront of the industry and in tune with the market. Today, it is the most authoritative trade fair for the leather-goods industry. It is therefore the ideal setting for the companies which focus on product research, marketing strategies and technical innovation as their points of strength. By evolving into a modern trade show, MIPEL has not only raised its image, it has also created highly successful synergies and partnership solutions with the other top fashion fairs.
The two Mipel shows, in March and September, are held in the futuristic fieramilano trade fair and exhibition complex in Milan, a global fashion and design capital. The two fairs present the autumn-winter collections and the following year’s spring-summer collections, respectively. Mipel provides a unique opportunity for finding out about the trends in bags and leather accessories, which play an increasingly influential role in the evolution of fashion styles. It is also a keenly-awaited occasion for celebrating the creative flair and technical skills of artisans and manufacturers from all over Italy and numerous other countries, for an industry of crucial economic importance.
