The digital event, which kicks off today, January 19 and runs through March 16, is held using the NuOrder platform, a B2B e-commerce platform for managing clients and orders, allowing buyers and sellers to safely connect and conduct business. "Micam America's proved to be a great platform for the promotion of Brazilian brands in this period where physical presentations are not an option,” says Ruisa Scheffel, the Commercial Promotion Analyst of Abicalçados. “Through NuOrder, exhibitors can use several tools to present their collections and contact customers in a complete digital way.”
The event is introducing new platform features and event enhancements. After retailers and brands asked for in-platform credit card payments, this transaction model has been added to facilitate faster order placement.
Recently, there has been a lot of international interest in the Brazilian footwear industry. Factors such as a favorable currency, more transparency about sustainable and ethically responsible manufacturing, and quality craftsmanship have created a business environment for incredible potential for 2021 and beyond.
Brands will be debuting their new collections for the Fall 2021 Season.
