The organisers of the APLF exhibition have announced that they will run APLF ASEAN in Bangkok for a second time, writes Leatherbiz.
They launched the event in October 2022 and have now said it will again this year. The dates for the second edition will be October 25-27 and the venue will, once again, be the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre (QSNCC) in central Bangkok.
On making the announcement, they said they had taken the decision to hold the show for a second time “to satisfy the needs of all participants that wish to return to the heart of ASEAN to do business”.
ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, is a trading bloc made up of 10 nations in the region. Three of the top-ten global footwear exporters, Vietnam, Indonesia and Cambodia, are member states.
At the 2022 event, there were more than 200 exhibitors, including national pavilions from Brazil, France, India, Pakistan, the US and Vietnam.
