As of September 2008, the MIDEC shoe fair in Paris is set change its name in connection with a plan to make it happen concurrently with the relatively small French leathergoods fair, possibly accommodating other types of fashion accessories as well. The big shoe shows in Düsseldorf, Milan and Madrid already operate along the same pattern. The organizers of MIDEC deny reports that parts of the fair will migrate to the French ready-to-wear fair, at least for the time being. The next MIDEC fair will take place as scheduled on Feb. 24-26, one month after the women’s fashion fair, Who’s Next and its Première Classe section. Future plans could possibly depend on the schedule of the summer session of these fashion fairs, which may be shifted from September to July. Meanwhile Tarsus, the company that acquired the MIDEC and Mod’Amont fairs from the French shoe industry federation last August, has sold a 49 percent stake in the latter accessories show to Première Vision, the textile fair that takes place at the same time as Mod’Amont.
