Celebrate 25th yr & compete in 'Best of APLF' Awards!

This is the 25th year of this important exhibition - widely accepted as being the premier event for all those engaged in the business of making leather.

Over the three day period - March 31 to April 2, 2009 - those attending, both exhibitors and buyers, enjoy a 'once-a-year' opportunity to catch up with what is new, view the latest trends, meet new business partners, and exchange industry gossip.

There is no trade show more highly regarded, or better attended, than APLF - Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (MM&T).

The previous event, which ran over precisely the same dates earlier this year, played host to over 1,120 exhibitors from 56 countries and regions who, in turn, made welcome the 19,500 plus buyers from almost every country in the world.

Even at this early stage the prospects for 2009 indicate similar, if not slightly higher numbers across both exhibitors and buyers alike.

And, as in previous years, MM&T will run concurrently with the hugely successful Fashion Access exhibition which features handbags, footwear, travelware, leather goods and fashion accessories of all kinds.

Those who have attended MM&T over the past couple of years will have put up with some slight inconvenience while an extensive expansion programme of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) was under way.

The good news is that these works will be almost completed in March 2009 and access between the various halls and exhibition areas will be much easier.

The synthetic materials, components and accessories sectors of MM&T will move from Hall 3 to the Grand Hall and Hall 2, placing them on the same level as the leather sector.

2009 will again feature a wide ranging programme of seminars and special trend forecasting areas - in materials, design and colours for the forthcoming seasons. For exhibitors there will be the opportunity to compete in the coveted "Best of APLF" Awards.

APLF - Materials, Manufacturing and Technology in 2009 promises to be the biggest, most comprehensive and successful exhibition in the series. A fitting result for 25 years of bringing the world's leather sector together under one roof.
