APLF MM&T 2013 – APLF Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (MM&T) 2013



APLF 2013 – Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (MM&T) 
APLF MM&T 2013 – APLF Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (MM&T) 2013
Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (MM&T) is the annual, premier, event of the global leather industry. Based in Hong Kong the exhibition serves as a hub for the leather business throughout all of Asia. It includes participation from southern China and, increasingly from the fast growing economies of India and south Asia. ‘If it’s got anything to do with leather, you’ll find it at MM&T.
The trade fair covers everything from raw hides, semi- and finished- leathers, tanning machinery, chemicals and dyes, to CAD/CAM and businesses services. MM&T attracts thousands of exhibitors and visitors from countries and regions around the world.  
Developed from the original Hong Kong Leather Fair, MM&T started in 1984 and was the first ever Hong Kong ‘Mega Fair’. In 2012, MM&T celebrated its 28th anniversary demonstrating the company’s ability to develop and adapt to what has become a fast changing industry with 19,089 buyers from 91 countries attending APLF - MM&T.
The most profound change has been the integration of leather into the wider fashion industry. Today, MM&T carries comprehensive details of forthcoming seasonal colours, finishes and designs. At the same time, the character of the original event a quarter of a century ago, remains – namely, an unique opportunity to meet and greet, in person, face-to-face with potential customers and suppliers.

We bring businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they might 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 always to be fully aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
APLF’s inaugural event, held in year 1984, was then known as the Hong Kong Leather Fair.  It was the city’s first ever Mega-Fair. Today, APLF has expanded its scope, currently organising six premium events in Hong Kong, China and India and covering a wide range of industry sectors.
Hong Kong is the ideal hub from which to build Asia-wide coverage and, of course, as China and India develop ever more momentum within the global economy our exhibitions are well positioned to introduce our customers to this fast expanding market region.
At this moment the potential of the China market is being explored by countless businesses world-wide.  The All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE) and the China International Footwear Fair (CIFF) & Moda Shanghai, have run concurrently in Shanghai since 1998. They are widely accepted as the premium international trade events for these two burgeoning sectors and are organised in conjunction with China’s only officially recognised sector trade organisation, the China Leather Industry Association (CLIA).
APLF’s scope of events captures the ever-shifting nature of the fashion and lifestyle industry.  Our Material’s Manufacturing & Technology (MM&T) exhibition is well established as the premier event for fabrics & components including the premium and always fashionable fabric – leather. 
With Fashion Access we have entered fully into the fashion arena, showing bags, footwear, leather goods, travelware and many lifestyle accessories.
Visit our Hong Kong exhibitions and you will find guides to help you forecast materials, designs and colours for up-coming seasonal ranges, complete with seminars and forums, special awards for outstanding innovation and, something we have long been keen to promote more actively – Sustainable Development.
It’s not just conventional trade exhibitions that we offer.  Prime Source Forum (PSF), inaugurated in 2006, offers a haven for top executives representing leading companies throughout the international garment and fashion industries to come together in a neutral, non-competitive environment to discuss issues of common interest and concerns.
A new event was launched in India in 2009 - Footwear Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (fMM&T).  It was a great success: allowing buyers and sellers an unique opportunity to meet and greet, in person. 
This is what we do.
