Lineapelle opens in Bologna

Published:  11 March, 2014

Today, the latest edition of Lineapelle is taking place for what could be the final ever time in Bologna. It is Europe’s largest international exhibition for leather, accessories, components and other materials for footwear, leather goods, garment and upholstery.

Over 1,101 exhibitors are displaying collections for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. There are 745 Italian exhibitors and 347 foreign exhibitors are taking part in the three-day show, March 11-13.

A number of side-events are also taking place including “The leather I’d like, desires from the world” which was today at 11am. It was a discussion panel organised by Euromedia Research looking at consumer trends. The panel included designers, writers, sociologists and other VIPs.

It is widely anticipated, but still unconfirmed, that Lineapelle will switch to Milan in September for the next (Autumn/Winter) edition along with Tanning Tech and SIMAC the tannery machinery and footwear machinery shows. However, a final confirmation has been deferred until the end of March.
