Since 1974, and without any interruption, SAPICA has represented the most important event in Latin America for the latest trends in footwear and leather goods, which is always in evolution and ready to represent the quality and tradition of the Mexican region of Guanajuato. The next dates to mark on your calendar for 2022 are from 23 to 25 August at the Poliforum in León, Mexico, with the 87th edition. On show will be the best in Mexican footwear and leather goods, providing the opportunity for over 350 exhibitors to meet up with more than 2,400 national and international buyers, resulting in new partnerships and contacts, while naturally doing business.

Now, more than ever before, after the forced break brought about by the pandemic, the footwear and leather goods industries feel the need for vis-à-vis meetings between sector professionals, in a safe environment filled with positive energy.

Among the events characterising the next edition are  the Pavilion of Knowledge, created with the aim of helping favour the development of new practices and innovative ideas, while hosting a series of conferences with exports recognised on an international level like Moris Dieck ("The new era of business"), Marcus Dantus ("Keys for a successful entrepreneurship”); Gustavo Prado (“Market trends in Mexico”); and Eugenia Rodríguez, ("Achieving success with your brand on social networks"), alongside workshops on Ecommerce and the latest trends with the Trends of WGSN.

With the aim of giving a greater boot to internationalisation, SAPICA will host the Business Center of Shoes From Mexico, offering a platform of services for connections and networking between buyers and manufacturers.

Finally, inspired by the ‘HI-TECH-Sport Party’ theme of the edition, an athletic competition will be organised in the city, along with various events at the fair and an inaugural Party with the Le twins DJ set.
