China Delegations Head to APLF in Dubai

The lifting of China’s compulsory quarantine and travel restrictions and reopening for outbound travel for business and tourism has sparked a return of Chinese exhibitors and buyers to APLF.

Supported by China Leather Industry Association (CLIA) and local industry associations, the delegations from China’s Fujian, Hebei, Guangdong, Shandong, Zhejiang provinces, intend to both source from and sell to the international exhibitors and buyers expected at APLF in Dubai, which is due to be held from 13 – 15 March at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

The delegations with number around 60 companies, are manufacturers and exporters of bags, footwear, and components for the shoe industry.

After three years of restrictions, the Chinese leather, footwear and leathergoods industries are once again on the move. With the doors to international markets now reopened, their first port of call will be APLF in the Middle Eastern business hub of Dubai.

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.
