First London (last Tue, 24 January), then New York (next Wed and Thu, 1-2 February), finally Milan. Lineapelle is really getting going: following its quality international previews, it is ready to launch its major event, true highlight of the international leather fairs. Scheduled on February 21-23 at Fieramilano Rho, the event is filled with expectations and novelty. First of all, the new Trend Area, which is going to house about 2,000 samples picked out of the cutting-edge items suggested by exhibitors for summer 2018. Secretary’s office has announced that “stand placement is about to be renewed, and paramount importance will be given to its central position”. In fact, the main Trend Area “will be set up at the entrance of Pavilion n.13, whereas satellite Areas are still going to be placed into Pavilions n.9 and n.22”. Last but not least, exhibitors keep increasing. Last September positive trend – with record numbers of visitors, compared to the previous year edition- keeps up as exhibitors who are expected to show up at Fieramilano in 3 weeks will exceed the February 2016 ones. Excellent news then: Lineapelle still proves to be the leather fair international leader, now also winking at Facebook and Twitter: “Next edition will be getting in touch with social networks, launching #lineapelle92 hashtag. To share pictures, opinions and highlights before, during and after the event, scheduled on February 21-23”. Sharing is your password.
