  • Top-class leather community accounts for over 2.5B USD import of raw hides, skins and leather, a number closely equivalent to China
  • Over 0.3B USD export of leather goods including footwear, handbags and travel goods, also imports more than 3B USD of leather goods

Why Bangkok, Thailand?

  • Thailand has been a strong transaction hub of leather and leather goods with proximity to core manufacturing countries in ASEAN

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.
