SIMAC TANNING TECH, the international event for machines and technologies for the footwear, leather goods and tanning industries, that will be held from 22 to 24 September 2021 at Milano Fiera Rho, is ready to raise the curtain on technologies and innovation for the Fashion supply chain.
The fair will be attended by 200 international exhibitors, on a total exhibition area of 9,000 square metres.
The Organising Secretariat has developed a series of offers that aim at maximising the experiences of both exhibitors and buyers, making Simac Tanning Tech the “technological square” for all segment operators: Businesses, Schools and Training Centres, Technological Centres and Research and Innovation laboratories.
The organisational machine can count on the collaboration of a network of international journalists, starting with the Co-Branding initiative between Simac Tanning Tech and AF Edizioni (of which ARS Tannery is part).

Simac Tanning Tech becomes a community, within which it is always possible to discuss innovation, technologies and trends, not limiting itself to the physical appointment of the Fair.
Space is given to the “ASSOMAC TALKS”: a moment of international networking which the Assomac Association has promoted, bringing together the Technological Centres of the sector, which will present their valuable contribution to innovation and technology transfer in the manufacturing process.
The 1st edition of the “Assomac TALKS” will include three “Digital Round Tables” where the invited Technological Centres will share their experience on themes related to “Fashion & Technology” and “Sustainability & Measuring”. A particular attention will be granted to the “Service Technology Centre Ecosystem”, developed by Assomac and ITA Agenzia, during the round table entitled: “ITA Service Technology Centres Ecosystem”.
Digital will support physical presence thanks to the renewed Simac Tanning Tech 2021 APP – available for iOS and Android systems.
In compliance with the regulations of the COVID-19 protocol, no paper tickets will be issued; it will therefore be essential to pre-register or use the APP and its various features that will allow you to register and get your paperless ticket; have a Chat, similar to traditional messaging applications, communicate directly with the people present at the fair; exchange business cards simply by bringing together your contactless – smartphones; obtain all the information on the fair, companies and products, to better plan your visit.
The attendance at the fair of the commercial delegations coordinated by ITA Agenzia has been confirmed: more than 80 delegates coming from Egypt, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Uzbekistan, Albania, Romania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Morocco, Tunisia. Moreover, all delegates who, due to the health situation, are unable to reach Milan, will be active visitors of the event, thanks to the web APP.
Again this year, “the innovation corner” will not be missing at Simac Tanning Tech: an open innovation environment to show visitors studies and solutions for the manufacturing sector that fully integrate the innovative technologies of Industry 4.0.

This year the space will be dedicated to four topics of interest:
Sustainability, in the field of machinery for the leather-leather goods-footwear supply chain, thanks to the “Green Label ASSOMAC” tool, presented by the RINA Certification Body.
Digitisation, with Star-7, a company specialised in the transfer of technical content, which will show you live the technologies of digitisation and virtualisation of machinery and the possibility of carrying out technical interventions remotely.
Research, with the Italian Leather Research Institute (SSIP), leader of the PON smart factory project: “Automation, eco-sustainability and circularity for the manufacture of nano-functionalised leathers”; a supply chain project in which ASSOMAC plays the role of technological partner.
Human Resources and Professional Training with the presence of the Italian Technical Institutes awarded with the “Amilcare Baccini” scholarships and PISIE, an NGO that operates at international level in the professional and managerial training sector of the fashion industry.
An overall proposal that supports the desire to start over with all the good sense and precautions necessary for a “Safe Fair”: the “health information” section on the Exhibition website
( collects all the information necessary to travel to Italy and the “safe together” section of Fiera Milano illustrates the rules to be respected during the days of the fair (

SIMAC TANNING TECH, held from 22 to 24 September 2021, is confirmed as the main point of reference to view the best technologies in the sector available on the market and an indispensable meeting and business opportunity for the major players in the international system.
