China International Footwear Fair draws record visitors

A total of 1,126 companies exhibited at the All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE), China International Footwear Fair (CIFF) and Moda Shanghai, held over 3 - 5 September 2008 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

It demonstrated, yet again, that this is by far the largest and most international leather industry event in China.

The exhibitors came from 36 countries and regions, and there were 24 group pavilions, of which the majority (21) were in ACLE. Brazil, France, Korea and Taiwan had two pavilions each.

More than a quarter (26%) of companies at ACLE were in the semi-finished and finished leather sector, almost 18% for process chemicals and dyes, some 12% for tanning machinery, over 11% for hides and skins and a similar number for man-made leather.

Footwear dominated at CIFF and Moda Shanghai with over 50% of exhibiting companies, with handbags and leathergoods representing almost 20%.

The total number of buyers for the three fairs was up also, at 15,755, which was a record number for the exhibition and demonstrates just how effective this event is as a gateway into the China market for both local and international companies.

Most, 13,893, were from Mainland China. A further breakdown of buyer numbers revealed that almost 42% came from the Shanghai district, almost 19% from Zhejiang, over 10% from Jiangsu and around 10% from Guangdong .

Buyers generally praised the organisation of the exhibition, approved of the way it was laid out, and its size and comprehensive coverage.
