Siro Badon, the chairman of Micam and of the Italian footwear association Assocalzaturifici, said that he was “cautiously optimistic” about holding a physical edition of the Milan-based trade fair from Sept. 19 to 21.

The physical edition of Micam scheduled from March 21 to 23 was cancelled because of the resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic. The trade show held a virtual event from March 8 to May 8 called Micam Milano Digital Show. It attracted more than 90 brands and over 5,000 international buyers.
