The MICAM and GDS fairs have set new dates for March 2009. Like this year, the GDS will take place after the Milan show, which will run from Wednesday to Saturday and will have a longer overlap with the leathergoods show, MIPEL. MICAM will run on March 4-7 and the GDS on March 13-15. MIPEL has set the tentative dates of March 5-8, but they need to be confirmed. Modacalçado and the simultaneous Iberpiel exhibition in Madrid will take place on March 19-21. The Düsseldorf fair and MIPEL have not yet announced their dates for September 2009, but MICAM says its show will run on Sept. 16-19 next year. For September 2008, the GDS is already scheduled to come first, on Sept. 12-14, followed by MICAM on Sept. 17-20 and by MIPEL on Sept. 18-21, and Modacalçado/Iberpiel on Sept. 25-27.
