The exhibition is reserved exclusively to the operators of the leather sector and is held in the fair district of Bologna (Italy) twice a year (in April for Spring/Summer; in October for Fall/Winter).

LINEAPELLE ASIA is held yearly in November at the Guangzhou New Exhibition Center, which ranks among the most modern fair districts worldwide. The exhibition is a successful commercial operation and a key promotional tool for Italian leather manufacturers at the same time. It stands out as an event not to be missed by Asian businessmen working in the leather sector, who are given the chance to make a full immersion experience in the latest trends, thanks to lectures and guided tours in the fashion area.
