Business Matching Sessions are designed for buyers with specific sourcing needs who want to meet suppliers in an efficient way. Buyers can sign up for and attend the Business Matching Sessions focused on different types of leather/applications, and meet exhibitors we invited at the Business Matching Area one by one while enjoying our refreshment. 

How Does It Work?

  1. Sign up for the session(s) that you are interested in and let us understand your sourcing needs.
  2. Confirmation will be sent to eligible buyers in early October.
  3. Visit APLF ASEAN and arrive at the Business Matching Area on time.
  4. You will be assigned a table, and incoming exhibitors will present their products and exchange contact with you.

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.
