Tips & tricks for your business
We have been approached by potential investors and companies keen to pre-finance some projects and to provide technical assistance, mostly from mainland China but also from Japan, South Korea and even Italy. Ironically, we have also met interested partners from South Africa! We were so busy that we did not even have a chance to sit down.
Clement Shoko, Chairman, Zimbabwe Leather Development Council, Zimbabwe
Our colour designers get their inspiration from Italy and Spain. The fairs in Hong Kong and Shanghai are key elements in our sales and marketing plan in Asia. We have been exhibiting at APLF for six years and at ACLE for seven.
José Luis Torres, General Manager, Leather Quimica, Spain
The fair has been amazing so far in this first morning with a nice turnout of visitors and has been surprisingly busy. We are selling our leathers to China, South Korea, Japan, as well as to the USA and Germany. We also visit our clients at Fashion Access who produce garments and gloves, which is an advantage of having two fairs at one place.
Brook Debebe, General Manager, Ethio-Leather Industry PLC, Ethiopia
We have a good market in Europe and the USA and are in the process of establishing ourselves in the Asian market which takes time. We have received high quality visitors from Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and some US manufacturers. This is why we come to APLF as it is the gateway to the Asian market.
Novo Kaeru, Massimiliano Mennonna, Brazil
I confirm that the show has been important for us. We met many visitors on the first and second day. The buyers were mainly from the leathergoods sector. Most came from China and then from Korea, Thailand and India. About the overall services: our opinion is positive.
Paola Bezze, Priante Srl, Italy
APLF is the world’s leading leather trade show where a huge range of leather and components can be found. APLF is positioned for the sourcing of leathers further “downstream” or related to the manufacturing industries of leather goods and mid to high quality footwear.
Strategically located in Hong Kong, APLF offers a professional business platform where suppliers can meet thousands of international buyers who do their sourcing trips annually in Asia Pacific.
On top of the well-established APLF Leather sector, there is also a separate sector named APLF Materials+ to cater to the rising demand for innovative materials and components by the leathergoods and sportswear markets.
