With a view to optimising the international exhibition calendar, GDS in Düsseldorf has coordinated the sequence and duration of events for 2007 with Micam in Milan. GDS will be held together with GLS (International Event for Leather Goods & More) from March 9-11, 2007, and from September 14-16, 2007. Three days later Micam will follow GDS, running from March 15-18, 2007, and from September 20-23, 2007.

Market analyses have shown that overseas trade visitors from appreciate the opportunity of seeing the different ranges on display at GDS and at Micam on one single trip to Europe. The resulting synergies permit buyers to obtain the necessary overview of the market as a whole and of the individual collections in a concentrated and simplified manner allowing them to plan the next season ideally. In times of continued insecurity within the industry this ensures the highest degree of safety for trends and orders.

Next GDS/ GLS dates: September 15-17, 2006

Next Micam dates: September 21-24, 2006
