immagine sito LPLineapelle - the most important international event for professionals in the fashion, luxury, design and automotive sectors - will host over 1,200 exhibitors (tanneries, accessories and components manufacturers, fabrics and synthetics) from 45 countries and will welcome the entrance of more than 20,000 economic operators (coming from 109 countries).

The most important new feature of the 95th edition, scheduled from 25 to 27 September 2018 at the exhibition spaces of Fieramilano Rho, is undoubtedly the inauguration of Lineapelle Innovation Square (www.fashioninnovation.it): a pole of unique and innovative inspiration, in which 40 speakers from all over the world, specialized R&D institutes and highly innovative companies will present their work, their skills and their products, from laboratory research to already fully industrialized solutions. A unique opportunity to get in touch with new and indispensable ideas for a market that is demonstrating an increasing attitude to accepting the evolution of materials, new processes and new business models.

The heart of the project is a space inside Lineapelle, located along Corso Italia (in front of the Pavilions 9-11). Arranged on two floors, set up with ledwall, LCD screens and high interconnectivity, the space will allow visitors, investors, companies, research & development institutes and universities to mix experiences and skills, but above all to intrigue and inspire.
