APLF has been the main
leather trading platform in the world for four decades. Such a history has made
the series of Virtual APLF trade shows, which will happen 100% online,
organized by APLF and strategic partners, one of the most awaited events in the
leather industry’s calendar in the first trimester of 2021. The special
editions China (January 20 and 21) and India (January 28 and 29) will have the
participation of Brazilian companies with the support of the Brazilian
Leather project, an initiative of the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry
(CICB) and Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil)
to promote the national industry in the foreign market.
As in the Hong Kong APLF editions, the virtual fairs should bring suppliers of the leather chain closer to the clients, partners, and buyers from various industries that have maintained a trust relationship with APLF for so many years. Each exhibitor will have a stand where they can display photos of their products and services. Visitors must register to have access to the stands. During the fairs, communication between exhibitors and visitors may be by chat, video calls (live or by appointment), or text messages. There will also be rooms broadcasting live lectures and collective networking spaces.
In China, the communication and promotion of the event is supported by the China Leather Industry Association (CLIA), an organization with more than 1,300 members that serves the entire leather chain, such as tanneries and footwear, bags, artifacts, and clothing industries. In India, the event is supported by the Council for Leather Exports (CLE), an association of more than 6,000 tanneries and industries that produce leather goods in India.
