(Industry Bodies & Organisations)
APLF brings leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.
We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
APLF’s inaugural event, held in 1984, was then known as the Hong Kong Leather Fair. It was the city’s first ever Mega-Fair. Today, APLF, a joint venture between UBM Asia Ltd and SIC Group, has expanded its scope, organising APLF-Leather & Materials+, Fashion Access, Cashmere World and All China Leather Exhibition in Hong Kong and China, and has developed initiative programmes and awards covering a wide range of industry sectors.
To accommodate the fast-changing business environment and extend our service to connect suppliers and buyers beyond the trade fairs, APLF also manages APLF.com, an online platform which integrates the function of online sourcing and industry content. Through this 24-7 virtual fair, buyers can source from more than 1,500 suppliers for leather, fashion materials, fashion accessories and manufacturing technology.
