The Leather Revolution: How the Industry will Respond is the theme of the 3rd World Leather Congress, the international congress of tanners, scheduled for 29 August 2017 in Shanghai, on the eve of All China Leather Exhibition (30 August – 1 September 2017).

This Congress will be organised by Taiwanese International Leather Association (TILA), who, through Richard Pai, currently hold the Presidency of International Council of Tanners (ICT), and by China Leather Industry Association (CLIA). ICT is headed by Richard Pai from Taiwan. Members are tanneries representing 37 Countries from Europe, America, Asia and Africa.

The event will be recognising the profound changes that will be taking place throughout the leather marketing chain over the next 20 years, and focusing on how the industry should be responding.

Follows from the very successful first two World Leather Congress organised by Wolfgang Goerlich and the Brazilian Association (CICB) in Rio de Janeiro in 2011, and the second Congress organised by the Italian Association (UNIC) in Milan in 2015, during the ICT Presidency of Rino Mastrotto.

Each Congress represents an opportunity to remind everyone of the important part the leather industry plays in international business and the enormous steps that the industry has made in demonstrating its technical expertise, its social and environmental responsibility and its sustainability.
