after seeing how the emergency has escalated in the past few days and the
relative precautions adopted by the Italian government – comments the President
Giovanni Vitaloni – we have worked nonstop in the last 72 hours to be able to
define the new dates, carefully chosen to meet the needs of the sector. Thanks
to the tireless work of the whole staff and to the collaboration with Fiera

support of the most important companies, in these hours we have met with our
exhibitors, buyers, and stakeholders, because MIDO is the reference point for
the sector, and, above all in this delicate moment, it is the reflection of
Italian and international eyewear, a unique resource recognized worldwide as an
important economic segment for our country.
The new date will allow the brands to present the new collections in preview, as it always happens in February at MIDO, and to meet with buyers that arrive from all around the globe, in order to understand the coming season’s trends.”
