Moda Made in Italy, the Italian shoe show, has announced the show's dates for 2020. The shoe show organized in Munich twice a year by Assocalzaturifici, the Italian shoe industry association, is now scheduled for March 15-16 and Oct. 4-6, 2020. In 2019, the show took place from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1, simultaneously with Okotoberfest, the traditional Bavarian beer festival. Visitors and exhibitors alike were apparently unhappy that the events took place at the same time. As of 2020, neither Moda Made in Italy nor Essenz, the alternative shoe show in Munich, will take place on the same dates. Essenz will be held on Sept. 27-29, 2020.
