The next 'Big Spenders' of the Leather Industry – ACLE & CIFF

Jul '09
The Chinese tend to save more and, of course, they are not experiencing excessive debt levels because the personal credit market is still in its infancy.

Many business people and analysts - local as much as foreign - predicted that Chinese retail buyers would react to the global economic downturn by forgoing the really big-ticket items, such as a car, and plumb instead for a consolation purchase - such as a new pair of high end shoes from overseas, or a top brand leather bag - and put the car purchase off for the time being.

But China's workforce is becoming more productive, which typically benefits the more skilled section of the workforce: the very people most likely to be profiled for buying big-ticket items.

In the event it seems that Chinese consumers are indeed buying high-end foreign shoes and brand name leather handbags - and the car as well.

All China Leather Fair 2009
Since its inception over 10 years ago ACLE has offered international companies in the leather sector the best access to the China market. It's the place where companies from around the world can meet Chinese buyers face-to-face, discuss business, examine fashion trends and keep abreast of new innovation.

Last year a total of 1,120 exhibiting companies from 38 countries and regions, welcomed 15,755 buyers, almost all of the latter came from mainland China.

The exhibition is held in tandem with, and at the same location, as the China International Footwear Fair (CIFF) and Moda Shanghai.

This year, as before, the three fairs will occupy five halls of the Shanghai New International Exhibition Centre. Three months out from the fair, more than 90% of the space available is already booked by international and local exhibitors. In the international halls, 18 group pavilions from Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethopia, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Pakistan, Portgual, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and USA will present their latest products and know how.

ACLE, CIFF and Moda Shanghai are organised by APLF (who celebrated this year the 25th anniversary of their fairs held in Hong Kong), and the China Leather Industry Association (CLIA).
