The organisers of DaTE, the eyewear fair dedicated to independent design brands and avant-garde eyewear, has confirmed the event will go ahead on 19th to 21st September 2020. The international eyewear fair MIDO will contribute to the organisation of the event as in previous years. DaTE takes place at the Stazione Leopolda, one of the first train stations in Italy, and a venue described as perfectly suited for an event which has creativity, innovation and originality as its core elements. The fair will be open for three days with free admission for opticians. Confirmation of the event was made in a press release this week by Confindustria Moda (the Italian Fashion Federation), which announced that a number of well-known trade shows and events which also include MICAM Milano and TheOneMilano Special are confirmed to take place in the months ahead, following the period of crisis and closure since February 2020 in Italy due to COVID-19.
