MIDO 2022, due to take place from 12th to 14th February 2022 has been postponed owing to the latest wave of COVID-19 sweeping through Europe. The fair has now been slated to take place from Saturday 30 April to Monday 2 May at Milano Rho Fiera.
According to the fair organisers the decision to move the international show from February to May in 2022 was driven by the desire to ensure exhibitors and visitors can benefit from the best business conditions, even during the current situation of global pandemic. They say the new dates represent a profitable period for commercial activities, and respect the dates booked by other international eyewear fairs. "This is a strategic time of the year for business and internationalisation, taking MIDO back to its origins, as its first edition actually took place in the month of May," state the organisers. The hope is that the arrival of Spring will bring safer and easier travel between countries.
