Lineapelle closes with an increased number of buyers
The most recent edition of Lineapelle saw a 25% increase in the number of buyers present, as compared to the September 2022 edition, confirming the “reassuring return” of Asia
The 102nd edition of Lineapelle, held between the 19th and the 21st of September at Fiera Milano Rho in Milan, hosted 1 330 exhibitors and recorded a 25% increase in the number of professional visitors from the September edition of last year.  The organisation added that the attendance of Italian buyers grew by 26% while the presence of those from abroad rose by 22%. Arriving from 109 countries, the highlight goes to the participation of France, China, Japan, and South Korea, which confirms the “reassuring return of Asian buyers to the fair”.

“All the exhibition sectors at Lineapelle 102 showed remarkable vitality. Creativity and the ability to involve and stimulate the various operators were the strong points of a show whose international leadership cannot be questioned and is even stronger after this edition”, commented President Gianni Russo. Despite the slowdown in the market, the manufacturers interviewed by La Conceria agree that their participation in this latest edition was positive and that it is a relevant fair for their business.

In addition, according to the organisation of Lineapelle, the synergy with the Simac Tanning Tech, the event dedicated to the machinery and technology for the tanning, footwear and leather goods industries held concurrently at the same space, seems to have paid off.  

“The international attendance of visitors and the attention of technology manufacturers towards process organisation and digitalisation confirm a significant change of pace towards a sustainable transition. We are certain that this path, shared by all operators in the sector, will soon generate satisfying results”, explained Maria Vittoria Brustia, president of Simac Tanning Tech.

The next edition of Lineapelle is scheduled to take place from the 20th to the 22nd of February 2024, as usual at Fiera Milano Rho.
