A key focus of the Lagos Leather Fair has always been to transform the leather industry by creating greater visibility and opportunities across the African leather space. One of the ways we have sought to do this is by driving thought-provoking conversations amongst various stakeholders in the leather business.
Over the years, and through these conversations, we have addressed significant issues centered around sustainability, the future of the industry, and business growth; and this year would be no different. We are excited to be bringing to you yet another round of stimulating conversations to challenge your views and broaden your perspectives!
