At Lineapelle , four Brazilian tanneries showcased their products with support from Brazilian Leather, project dedicated to promote leather exports and coordinated by the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil). At Simac Tanning Tech, it was project Brazilian Leather itself that captured everyone’s eyes through its exclusive space, which served as a meeting point for industry professionals and Brazilian authorities and where the Preview do Couro (Leather Preview) collection was presented to the public.
The two Italian exhibitions served to establish healthy institutional and commercial contacts, with results expected to grow even bigger within the next six months. According to Brazilian Leather project manager Letícia Luft, “the events are growing and gaining significant relevance in the international market”. “They worked as two very efficient platforms for our objectives, but we’ll also need a favorable exchange rate in order to turn business expectations into a reality”, she adds.
