WAKE-UP…and smell the leather!
Given the pressure that the leather industry has been under in recent years, you might almost forget that leather still has the smell of success. That is why the organiser of All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE), the largest leather trade show in China, APLF is collaborating with visionary innovation platform The Footwearists to wake-up and shake-up the global leather industry with an inspiring conference that puts leather in a whole new light. This “Shanghai Shake-up” will be a breath of fresh air with high-paced short lectures, technological trend videos and interactive group discussions, centering around three key future scenarios that each offer a wealth of opportunities for the leather industry as well as related industries, including fashion, leather goods, interior and automotive.
Connected to the conference, ACLE will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a Technological Innovation Trend Forum at the show, featuring functional innovations from exhibitors and from carefully selected invitees. The contents of this forum are also curated by The Footwearists, presenting relevant new applications that have not been displayed at leather trade shows before.
