If hides and skins were not transformed into leather they would need to be disposed of in some way. Every year, leather saves around 10 million tonnes from ending up in global landfill, potentially adding to the problem of greenhouse emissions.

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.


APLF Fairs follow Informa AllSecure, Informa’s approach to enhanced health and safety standards at events in the aftermath of COVID-19.
