APLF announces new fair dates for 2018 and 2019

In line with its policy of serving the global leather and fashion industries APLF is pleased to announce an adjustment to its traditional event dates for its Hong Kong fairs from 2018 onwards.

APLF has been held at the end of March for three decades but due to the proximity of the Easter vacation from 2018 onwards a decision has been taken to move the dates forward by approximately two weeks to mid – March.

By moving away from the Easter vacation both exhibitors and visitors should benefit from a less crowded travel schedule and find it easier to book flights before the Easter travel rush gets into full swing.

Thus, the new dates of APLF and Fashion Access are confirmed in 2018 and 2019 as:

• 14 – 16 March 2018 (Wed – Fri)
• 13 – 15 March 2019 (Wed – Fri)

APLF conducted consultations with other fair organisers in the leather sector regarding the change of dates so as to avoid any clashes or overlap of dates.

The Organisers are certain that these new days will prove to be both convenient and popular with participants of the global leather and fashion industry that come to Hong Kong.

About APLF

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.


We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
