The Trade Show, APLF Leather, co-founded with Fashion Access, was originally scheduled to take place in November 2021. In the interests of global leather industry exhibitors, visitors and partners, APLF and its sister organizations have decided to reschedule events in Hong Kong from March 30 to April 1, 2022 to allow greater international participation.
APLF Leather and Fashion Access are global trade fairs with participants from 90+ countries, and it believes its success is driven by exhibitors and visitors being able to come together to meet, connect and trade. Such access depends on travel restrictions imposed by participants’ home countries as well as entry and quarantine requirements in Hong Kong, which at present mean visitors to the territory must spend at least seven days in isolation.
By moving the event to 2022, APLF are confident that international travel will have opened up and quarantine requirements eased, allowing the APLF Leather and Fashion Access teams to create the professional business platform which its participants have come to expect, allowing thousands of suppliers and buyers to source and transact.
In addition to serving the APLF Leather community, Materials+ will also be co-located at the show, catering to the rising demand for innovative materials and components by the leather goods and sportswear markets.
