4 World Footwear Congress to be held in November in Brazil

The 4 World Shoe Congress will be held on November 7-8 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). More than 400 entrepreneurs will discuss the development opportunities for the shoe sector.

For the first time, the shoe congress will be held outside of Europe. The change of location is associated with the rapid development of the shoe industry in Brazil.

Only in the first quarter of 2011, Brazilian shoe makers released 32,7 million pairs of shoes for $ 356,7 million. These are the data of the Brazilian Institute of Statistics.

Организаторами конгресса стали Ассоциация бразильских производителей обуви Abicalcados, Европейская конфедерация обувных компаний CEC, организаторы бразильских выставок обуви Couromoda и  Francal, а также итальянских выставок обуви Micam и Expo Riva Schuh и немецкой выставки GDS. «Мир сегодня. Перспективы для будущего» - под таким девизом производители обуви из 20 стран соберутся, чтобы обсудить самые важные вопросы.

Участниками конгресса станут компании из Аргентины, Бразилии, Франции, Китая, Японии, Индии, Великобритании, Италии, Мексики,  Португалии, Испании, Таиланда, США и Вьетнама. К участию приглашены представители Европейской комиссии, правительства Бразилии, Технического института обуви (Inescop), Организации промышленного развития ООН (Unido).

Since the global economic crisis of the 2008 year, significant changes have occurred in both production and distribution, participants in the World Shoe Congress will discuss new challenges facing the sector: the correctness of commercial offers, health care, transparency of the origin of the product, maintaining the desired level of retail sales.

Место проведения 4-го Мирового обувного конгресса – Рио де Жанейро, отель Sofitel.
