Brazil was the Focus Country at MM&T this year and 38 Brazilian companies exhibited at the fair. Representatives from Brazil, supported by CICB and Apex-Brasil, presented several seminars at the Leather Forum on subjects such as traceability, environment and sustainability by leading experts from the industry. In addition, there was the Design na Pele (Leather & Design) exhibition illustrating beauty and flexibility as characteristics of leather can be brought out when in the hands of truly creative designers.
 
The release of the Brasil Beyond Concept also drew people’s attention at APLF MM&T, especially due to performances like live graffiti on leather articles, which took place in the Brasil Beyond exclusive stand. The new communication campaign of the Brazilian Leather Project and the launch of the new edition of Brazilian Leather Book were also some of the highlights of the nation's participation at APLF - MM&T.
