MICAM is celebrating an increase in visitors from China and is preparing to present a separate Plug-Mi sneaker exhibition.

According to the organizers, 16 visitors were registered at the International Exhibition of Shoes MICAM, which was held in Milan on 19-45424 on September. Of this number, 27272 arrived at an exhibition in Italy from abroad. The share of visitors to MICAM from China and Hong Kong increased by 68,6%, from North America - by 43,2%.

Within the European Union, the share of guests from Spain increased by 9,6%, from Portugal - by 4,5%, from Switzerland - by 7,8%. At the same time, the number of visitors from Germany, France and Russia decreased, due to the influence of international sanctions.

Targeting the Millennials, this will be the first event entirely dedicated to the world of sneakers. Organizers were inspired by events such as the Complexcon festival in Los Angeles and the KixFair exhibition in Atlanta. As planned by the organizers, this new format will include video installations, games, music events in order to present the social and commercial phenomenon that can be called the “world of sneakers” as widely as possible.
