From 22 to 24 February Lineapelle 99 returns to Fieramilano Rho in the traditional exhibition halls (9/11, 13/15, 22/24). And it does so by guaranteeing exhibitors and visitors a fair experience in maximum safety in relation to all anti-Covid protocols. The world’s leading trade fair for leathers, fabrics, accessories, components for the fashion, design and automotive industries is the reference point that involves over 60,000 companies and generates a turnover of over 150 billion dollars / year. The event opens its doors, as per the recent approval of the Law Decree by the Council of Ministers, also to buyers not vaccinated with the EMA vaccine (Sputnik, Sinovac, Soberana, Covaxin) as long as they present a negative and antigenic swab (validity 48 hours) and molecular (validity 72 hours).

Doors open to the community

The opening of the Green Corridors reinforces the strategic importance of the event’s decision to confirm its holding in February. The community is therefore ready to go and discover the Spring Summer 2023 collections. Lines developed in the name of creativity and sustainable refinement, concepts in which aesthetics and revolutionary applications of treatments, finishes and colors blend.
There are over 950 exhibitors, of which two thirds are Italian, and a third arriving from 31 countries, + 30% compared to the September 2021 edition, the last one in attendance, a figure not far from the pre-Covid one. There are almost 500 tanneries present; over 300 accessory and component manufacturers; 100 manufacturers of fabrics and synthetics.
The economic branch represented by the exhibition sectors of Lineapelle 99, between international supply and demand, is worth 150 billion dollars and employs about one and a half million people. The set of Italian exhibitors invoices about 8 billion euros a year, of which 70% comes from exports.

Some appointments

Strengthened by its global reference dimension for the fashion & luxury industry, the event offers, in its three days of development, an articulated and innovative program of presentations, events and debates.
In the three usual Trend Areas (halls 9, 13 and 22), over 1,000 samples of materials, accessories and components developed by the exhibitors will be presented in the light of the stylistic trends for Summer 2023 elaborated by the Lineapelle Fashion Committee.
Trends that will be explored during a series of free-entry seminars at the Fashion Theater.
And again, after its September debut and some international presentations, the A New Point Of Materials project, conceived by Lineapelle dedicated to Responsible Innovation, is back. With the Leather And Its Circularity initiative, visitors are offered the exclusive opportunity to discover the most important business projects related to the circular path of Italian leather and the manufacturing that bases its identity on upcycling.

Mipel Lab is the second edition of the project created by Lineapelle 99 in collaboration with Mipel.
