Perrine Ardouin will be leaving her post as the director of APLF (Asia Pacific Leather Fair) after 24 years in charge of the company’s portfolio of trade fairs and events. Ardouin has decided to leave Hong Kong and move on to a new page of her life. Ardouin will be succeeded by Grace Lee, who has been appointed as the director of APLF.
 
After departure, Ardouin will continue supporting the exhibitions in a different form and acts as an independent advisor to the APLF’s portfolio until 2021 APLF exhibitions in Hong Kong.
 
“Ardouin has made a huge contribution to the APLF's portfolio of international trade exhibitions, bringing innovation and much experience to connect industry experts, buyers and exhibitors together. She also has been a leader in sustainability and spending tremendous efforts to advocate green events, eco-friendly businesses, and to contribute to the ‘Leather Naturally’ campaign. I wish to express my heartful thanks to Ardouin for her dedication and leadership for the past 24 years, and I wish her every good fortune and health going forward,” Michael Duck, director of APLF, said in a press release.
 
Lee has been with Informa Markets (formerly UBM Asia), a JV partner of APLF Limited for over 19 years and progressed with various positions and assignments. She was once a core member of the APLF team and had developed a very strong relationship with the APLF fashion and leather industry partners.
 
APLF brings leather, material and fashion businesses together. The organisers bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.
