Mido 2020: New dates announced for the 50th edition
After the February 22 announcement of Mido’s postponement made its way around the world, the international eyewear exhibition, leader in its sector, is immediately getting back on track. The organizers announced the new dates to celebrate the fair’s 50th anniversary, which will now take place from Sunday, July 5 through Tuesday, July 7 2020, dates compatible with any coming provisions made by the competent authority for the health crisis and for the evolution of the national and international situation.
“After the decision to postpone Mido, the wisdom of which we are ever more convinced of 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 Milano, we are already able to announce the new dates. In addition to the 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 program of appointments for the 2020 edition of Mido is still being defined. All the updates will be available online on the website and on its official social media channels.
