Special Edition of APLF to be Held in Dubai

Please see the following press release from the organisers of the APLF exhibition.

APLF-Leather and Materials+ 2022 will be relocated from Hong Kong to Dubai, UAE, from 30 March - 1 April 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

The Hong Kong government’s announcement in August 2021 stipulated that the current regulations under the Prevention & Control of Disease Ordinance will be extended until March 31, 2022.

This has meant continued disruption to both exhibitors and visitors for the APLF fairs, as inbound travel to Hong Kong is subject to testing and lengthy quarantine restrictions, although these may be eased depending on the Hong Kong health authority’s decision.

Hence, APLF’s project in Dubai was born, so as to continue its mission of “Serving the Global Leather and Fashion Industries”.

Dubai is an Ideal City for APLF's Special Edition

  • Dubai has reopened the city to international visitors in July 2020
  • The UAE is the world's most vaccinated country with 98.1% of the population
  • International mega trade shows such as Gitex Technology Week (Dec 2020), Gulfood (Feb 2021) and Arab Health (Jun 2021) have taken place again in the city successfully
  • The location of Dubai between Europe and Asia makes it an ideal location for APLF whose mix of exhibitors and buyers come from approximately 80 countries worldwide
  • Great support from Informa Markets MENA Headquarter in Dubai

Being the location of the World Expo 2020 (1 Oct 2021- 31 Mar 2022) will provide sufficient visitors and buyers for a successful international leather fair.
