Press releases and Simac Tanning Tech in the international press

The publications of the footwear, leather goods and tanning industries are one of the channels through which the Fair reaches its stakeholders, i.e. visitors and exhibitors. This section is dedicated to the collaborative relationship that Simac Tanning Tech has with the most important international publications operating in the footwear, leather goods and tanning industries.

At the same time, the Simac Tanning Tech exhibition is the most important platform at international level for spreading technological innovation offered to manufacturing companies in the footwear, leather goods and tanning sectors. The synergy between the fair and the trade magazines is therefore critical to bring to the attention of manufacturing companies the technological innovations that are presented every year during the fair.

In this page, we have collected the articles published in the magazines for those working in the sector like a “talking about us", that is, reporting the articles written to share the technological innovations presented at the Simac Tanning Tech fair. At the same time, this page becomes the index of press releases for the benefit of all journalists and communication operators interested in receiving news about the fair.
