Cairo, Egypt

Pan African Leather Fair

Informa Exhibitions have announced the launch of Pan African Leather Fair to be held in June 2020, in Cairo. Powered by APLF, the exhibition will be the definitive event for the leather industry in the Middle East and Africa

The event is set to open up the African and Middle Eastern leather markets to the entire value chain. The MEA region is a hugely important growth area for the global economy, including leather industries, and Cairo is at its heart. This was the background for the presentation of the new leather fair, made last week during the APLF trade fairs in Hong Kong.

The Pan African Leather Fair opens a gateway to the Middle East and Africa leather markets; offering buyer-seller interactions, networking and education opportunities. Powered by Asia Pacific Leather Fair “APLF”,  this dedicated B2B trade show caters to the entire leather supply chain locally and internationally. The event serves as the hub for African and Middle Eastern leather industry.

Kigali, Rwanda

2nd Intra-Africa Trade Fair


Analysis by the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) shows that one of the reasons why intra-African trade is at 16% of total African trade, on average, is the lack of access to trade and market information. To address this challenge, Afreximbank decided to, among other initiatives, convene biennial Trade Fairs to provide trade and market information, connect buyers and sellers from across the continent and provide opportunities for matchmaking, business exchanges and conclusion of business and investment deals, among other objectives.
