According the show organisers, purchasing patterns of major national and international footwear buyers have changed, which have forced forward the dates of presentation of the footwear collections by the shoe manufacturers.

As Anpic is mainly a supplier show for the footwear industry the new dates are intended to offer shoe manufacturers an opportunity to view the latest machinery, chemicals, leathers and components earlier.

Anpic also run a series of fashion shows highlighting the fashion trends for the season a year in advance. The new dates will also allow the new trends and colours to be viewed earlier.
