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
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.
