Informa Markets, described as the largest organizer of trade shows in Asia, is taking over UBM Asia, which has a joint venture with SIC of France to manage the APLF shows. The change of control will start with the Pan African Leather Fair (PALF) held in Egypt next year. The four APLF fairs in Hong Kong will change structure in 2020. APLF Leather will be relocated to Level 3 of the exhibition center, giving it more space and better opportunities for re-segmentation and re-grouping of products. The other three fairs – Fashion Access, Cashmere World and Materials+ – will move to Hall 1. Sustainability will continue to be the central theme.
