Lineapelle is a place for creative and commercial sharing, characterized by a differentiated but coordinated variety of themes.
It is a dynamic space that expresses an innovative structural mission, exported to the Anglo-Saxon spin-offs (London and New York) in January, presenting the Innovation Talks, a direct evolution of the Lineapelle Innovation Square, the hub of inspiration that will be brought back at Lineapelle 97 from 2 to 4 October 2019.
Lineapelle is a laboratory of style which, at this edition, combines the fashion content of the(confirmed) Trend Areas with the new setup concept for the Lounge Areas which, as a note from Lineapelle explains, have been created to formalize the stylistic research work through themed exhibition moments, to make the color and conceptual references for the 2020 summer season transparent and understandable.
Lineapelle hosted up to 1,255 exhibitors including tanneries, manufacturers of accessories and components, synthetics and fabrics (38% of which are foreign, coming from 45 countries) and was attended by over 20,000 visitors, in addition to foreign delegations (with the support of the Ministry of Economic Development and the Italian Trade and Investment Agency) coming from the United Kingdom, Russia, France, China, the United States, Japan and Turkey, on a surface area covering around 47,500 square meters.
Lineapelle96 is the active link that connects the entire supply chain directly to fashion, by virtue of its proximity to the Milano Moda Donna fashion shows (19/25 February), and to cutting-edge technology thanks to the synergy with Simac Tanning Tech which, in the same period, is hosting over 300 innovative excellences specializing in systems and solutions for the tanning, footwear and leather goods industries at Fieramilano Rho.
Lineapelle96 presents itself as a direct counterpart to Micam, Mipel and The One, leading trade fair events for the international leather area, supported by trade associations which, like UNIC –Italian Tanneries, operate within Confindustria Moda, promoting and consolidating the identity of excellence within Italian manufacturing.
