Aimed at presenting the Chinese market with Brazilian differentials in design, technology and material innovation in both finished leather and footwear sectors, the Brazilian participation will benefit from a joint action promoted by the Brazilian Association of Leather, Shoe and Leatherwear Component Companies (Assintecal) and the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB).

In partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), the INSPIRAMAIS exhibition constitutes one of the axes of promotion. Held in a space of 60m², it will showcase the end result of an intense research and development work, aimed at guiding entrepreneurs in the production of components for leather, shoe and leatherwear which stand out for their design and innovation. Apart from the Summer 2016 trends, an area of the exhibition will be dedicated to the Ecodesign project, which aims at developing lower environmental impact leathers for the leather and footwear sectors, through the use of vegetable tannins, water based solvents and chrome free products.
