Higher visitor numbers at Lineapelle

Published:  24 February, 2020

Held at Fieramilano Rho February 19-20, the 98th edition of the international leather trade show recorded nearly 20,000 visitors, representing a 2% increase compared with the 2019 editions, said the organisers.

Despite the absence of Chinese and Far Eastern exhibitors and buyers due to the coronavirus epidemic, the higher attendance is said to have concerned both Italian and foreign visitors. The organisers have praised the synergy with the international footwear and leather goods trade shows, Micam and Mipel, with which Lineapelle shared on common exhibition day on February 19. Aimed at the Autumn/Winter 2021-2022 season, Lineapelle 99 is scheduled to take place September 23-25, 2020.
