Bringing the footwear industry closer together in an online B2B Marketplace

Brazilian Footwear presents private label opportunities for US brands at digital trade event MAGIC Sourcing.

NOVO HAMBURGO, BRAZIL, March 3, 2021 / — Abilcalçados, the Brazilian Footwear Industries Association, announces that 7 Brazilian footwear brands will participate in the Sourcing at MAGIC virtual trade show. The fair runs from March 1st- May 1st.

In partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex Brasil), Abilcalçados has implemented a program to support the exports and promotion of Brazilian footwear. They currently represent over 300 Brazilian brands. Confirmed to participate at Sourcing at MAGIC are Brazilian footwear brands: GVD International, Boaonda, Capelli Rossi, CCR Shoes, ALL’US Footwear, PG4 and Andacco.

“The show is notable for the commercialization of large volumes, usually with the brand’s private label,” says Ruisa Scheffel, the Commercial Promotion Analyst of Abicalçados.

“We have noticed the demand of major American brands in the search for alternatives in manufacturing in other markets than Asia. This opens up new opportunities for the Brazilian suppliers. Historically, the United States is the main market for Brazilian footwear abroad.”

In addition to the business opportunity on the platform itself, the initiative stands out by generating qualified contacts which are enhanced through the integrated matchmaking tool that cross-references customer needs with the exhibitors’ offers. “Each manufacturer has access to a data analysis page to control in real-time the performance of its page and product,” adds Scheffel. “The platform also offers the opportunity of prospecting strategies.”

Recent years have shown that 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.
