Positive signals arrive for the entire sector from ILM in Offenbach, which confirms the dates initially scheduled in an environment of total safety and with important names in the sector of bags, luggage, and fashion accessories: ““We are optimistic and excited because the fair will take place, as per schedule, on the usual date. Of course, we are going to implement all necessary measures with regard to health, sanitation and safe social distancing, which will apply to exhibitors and visitors, and at this point, nothing can possibly hinder a great and successful edition”, commented Arnd Hinrich Kappe, Chief Manager of the Offenbach Messe. ILM has also put together a package of measures in support of exhibitors and visitors: all exhibitors that reserved a stand at ILM in March 2020 will have a discount equal to 50% off the normal price of their exhibition space in September 2020, while every new exhibitor that registers for the next edition of ILM will instead receive a 20% discount on the renting of a standard exhibition space. At the same time, all exhibitors who decide to rent a basic stand system at the next edition will receive 50% off. The organisation also decided to offer free entry prior to previous online registration to buyers and visitors, as well as free parking and special conditions with hotels and restaurants. Moreover, the programme of the event has been extended and will complete and enrich the presentation of new products by exhibitors: new inspirations for fashion trends will arrive from the daily Runway Show, while various seminars and meetings with sector experts will be dedicated to the most important and relevant themes of the moment.
