Hopefully all delegates arrived in good quality footwear with sound soles, leather preferred, as the first day of the 34th edition of APLF got off to quite a fast and furious start.
Before the fair started there was some reticence due to trade sanctions being imposed unilaterally by the US and threats by both China and Europe to retaliate.
The world’s biggest leather event is about to occur. APLF Leather & Materials + will take place in Hong Kong from March 14-16, where 38 Brazilian business groups will be showing their hides and leathers with the support of the Brazilian Leather Project - an initiative of Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) to encourage leather exports.
On 15 March during APLFD 2018, the leather Naturally! campaign will hold an informative breakfast meeting in the fairgrounds.
For the 2018 APLF events, the Organisers took the decision to bring the fairs forward by approximately two weeks to mid-March after the consultation on both exhibitors and buyers.
