According to the CICB, the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry, the Brazilian companies participating at Lineapelle expect to generate around US$5 million in business during the first semester of 2017 as the industry event should attract an “audience with a high decision making power”.

“Our participation is multiplied with the spaces on both events. The tanneries at Lineapelle, and the Brazilian Leather project at Simac Tanning Tech, should generate an excellent synergy between business relations and image for the country”, says José Fernando Bello, Executive President, CICB.

The Preview do Couro (Leather Preview) project is showcasing over 15 articles at Simac Tanning Tech, produced by different Brazilian companies. Presented in January at the Brazilian trend event Inspiramais, in Sao Paulo, the collection is said to have generated new and prolific contacts for Brazilian tanneries.
