More than 125 exhibitors are expected to take part in the second edition of Leatherworld Middle East which will take place from April 26-28, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

According to a Messe Frankfurt press release, the GCC's leather trade was valued at $4.09 billion in 2014, which includes import and export of semi-finished and finished leather, accessories, travel goods, handbags and footwear.

The GCC is also a leather manufacturing hub as $1.9 billion worth of dressed leather, luggage, handbags, saddlery, harnesses and footwear were produced in the Gulf region in 2014.

“Saudi Arabia with $1.1 billion, UAE with $468 million and Qatar with $250 million were the region's big three leather producers,” the organiser added.

Returning exhibitors include Dani, the Italian supplier of sustainable leathers, Indian companies Hidesign, and C&E; and UAE-based leather supplier Afriwest, while Conceria Superior is a first-time exhibitor.

For the first edition, nearly 2,400 trade buyers from 66 countries passed through its doors, while 86 exhibitors from 16 countries showcased their latest wares.

The products on display at the show included hundreds of variations of animal hides, production machinery and chemicals, to leather handbags, footwear, accessories, and garments.

Ahmed Pauwels, CEO Messe Frankfurt Middle East said, “Leatherworld Middle East 2015 firmly made its mark on the regional and international leather market.”

“The GCC's leather trade reinforces an ideal backdrop for Leatherworld Middle East to become one of the world's premier trade and networking platforms,” he too added.

Among others, the 2016 show will feature the Trend Area, where an exclusive range of luxurious global leather innovations and animal hides will be seen for the first time in the region.

Elsewhere, UAE's most talented up-and-coming fashion designers from fashion institute ESMOD Dubai will showcase their creative talents with an inspiring array of leather garments in the Designers' Area.

Other exclusive product zones include 'The Shoe Box', a section dedicated entirely for footwear; and 'The Fashion Avenue', where suppliers will showcase high-end leather clothes and accessories.

Leatherworld Middle East encompasses tanneries, chemicals, machinery, finished leather goods, footwear, bags, wallets, accessories, furniture and everything derived from leather. (AR)
