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.

The Congress was organized by the Association of Brazilian Footwear Manufacturers Abicalcados, the European Confederation of Shoe Companies CEC, organizers of the Brazilian shoe exhibitions Couromoda and Francal, as well as the Italian shoe exhibitions Micam and Expo Riva Schuh and the German exhibition GDS. “The world today. Prospects for the future ”- under this motto, shoe manufacturers from 20 countries will gather to discuss the most important issues.

Representatives of the European Commission, the Brazilian government, the Technical Institute of Shoes (Inescop), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (Unido) are invited to participate.

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.
