APLF returns from March 13 to 15, 2023 with a new edition at the World Trade Center in the city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, this will be the second consecutive edition of the APLF fair that is held outside its traditional headquarters in Hong Kong , due to the travel restrictions imposed in the region during the pandemic. APLF will return to Hong Kong for the 2024 event.
Halls 1 to 3 of the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC) will host the three APLF fairs (Leather, Materials+ and Fashion Access) and all of them -as usual- will be held simultaneously covering the entire global supply chain of the leather industry, tanning, manufacturing and finished products.
In total, there will be around 350 exhibitors of materials, chemicals and machinery from 29 countries, including Spain. The expectation is that the Dubai edition will receive around 6,000 visitors.
The lifting of China’s mandatory quarantine and travel restrictions and the reopening for overseas business and tourism travel will see the return of Chinese exhibitors and buyers to APLF. After three years of restrictions, Chinese leather, shoe and leather goods manufacturers are on the move, and with the doors of international markets reopened, their first stop will be APLF.
