Welcome to Leatherworld Middle East 2019
The Middle East’s premier trade show dedicated to the leather industry
The region’s premier trade show dedicated to the leather industry opened its doors for the third edition in April 2017, bringing leather buyers, designers, retailers and boutiques to visit the show. The third edition showcased over 66 exhibitors from 17 countries breaking new ground for exhibitors and the 2,280 trade visitors alike by opening up even more opportunities for the leather industry in the Gulf region. Following on from the success of the 2016 edition, the show provided the ideal platform for suppliers and producers to grow their businesses within the $4.6 billion market in the Gulf region. Every sector of the leather industry was on display here, from tanneries and production to finished leather goods, including the latest in high-end exotic fashion, accessories and footwear.
