A group of 30 Spanish shoe manufacturers spent one day in the plush Hotel Meurice in Paris, with the support if ICEX, the Spanish foreign trade institute, to meet more than 130 French agents. FICE, which organized the event, defined it as very satisfactory and likely to be repeated. The Spanish shoe industry association already organized similar encounters with German agents in Düsseldorf in 2002 and in Munich in 2003. London may be the next destination.
