APLF 2024 International Leather Fair will be held in Hong Kong

Representatives of the global leather industry will gather in Hong Kong from 19 to 21 March. APLF Leather & Materials is returning home after being held in Dubai for the past two years, worldfootwear.com writes. 

More than 20 global leather associations are expected to attend the Hong Kong Leather Show, with more than 800 companies exhibiting.

From 19 to 21 March, visitors will be able to attend three combined events at the Hong Kong Expo Centre: APLF Leather & Materials+ and Fashion Access.

After the return of the exhibition to its native harbor, all attention will be focused on buyers from the Asia-Pacific region and China. 

Another highlight will be the 4th Global Footwear Executive Summit, which will bring together experts and decision-makers from various segments of the footwear industry on the afternoon of March 20th.
