“The proximity of the 3rd WLC and the 20th edition of ACLE offers a unique opportunity for the global leather sector to come together and participate at both the congress and trade fair. These two complementary events promise to be the most important organised in recent times in China for the leather sector”, said APLF Ltd, organisers of the ACLE and Sponsor of the Congress whose theme in 2017 is “The Leather Revolution”.

The total exhibition area of ACLE is to cover 92,000 sq m and 8 halls of the exhibition centre; halls E1 – E3 are aimed at international tanneries, machinery and chemical suppliers, while halls E4 – E7 and N5 are dedicated to domestic exhibitors. Around 80% of the exhibition space has already been reserved, according to the organisers. Over 1,100 exhibitors from 36 countries, and more than 24,000 visitors are expected over the three days.
