APLF Dubai will take place from March 13-15, 2023, in Sheikh Saeed Halls 1-3 of the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The fair will cover an area of 16,000 sq m and will host a total of 14 national pavilions from Brazil, China, Egypt, France, India, Italy, Pakistan, South Africa, Turkey and Vietnam. The event will also involve eight regional associations from China along with others from Vietnam, India, Pakistan, Egypt, South Africa, France, Italy and Brazil.

Sister fair Fashion Access will also be held concurrently with APLF Dubai and will be supported by national and regional associations from China, Vietnam and South Africa.
