Over one thousand exhibitors (800 from Brazil) are expected to attend and the organisers state that last year's fair attracted 48,000 visitors! This figure is unaudited.

A number of other events will be held simultaneously with the fair. They include the 5th Leather Forum - presented by ABQTIC including technical speeches and a congress. The lastest colour trends, fashion guides and a trends selection area presented by ABECA will also be shown.
