BLC’s Grand Leather Tour of Tamil Nadu, India | India International Leather Fair

BLC’s Grand Leather Tour of Tamil Nadu, India | India International Leather Fair

At BLC, we like to keep in touch with members all over the world and ensure we are delivering a high level of customer service.

On a recent trip to India, our Membership Development Manager, Michael Goode, attended the 32nd edition of the India International Leather Fair in Chennai to network with industry professionals, as well as making time to visit clients, including BLC Members.

 

India International Leather Fair, Chennai

The India International Leather Fair (IILF) is seen is India’s premier leather exhibition. The sheer size of the fair and effort to hold a leather event on this scale, is well received in the India leather community and very well supported by the industry.

One of our newest BLC Members, Gheli International Ltd, was keen to speak with Michael about BLC’s chemical testing, physical testing and specification building services.

The exhibition was well attended by domestic and international companies. While foot fall was steady over the three days, plenty of visitors attended the IILF, from countries including India, UK, Germany, Spain, South Africa, China, Italy & Russia to name just a few.

There was a good buzz around the show with plenty of meetings and discussions ongoing.

We were also delighted to see stands from our Sustainability in Leather Supply Chain Conference sponsors; Platinum Sponsor Stahl, and Gold Sponsor Lanxess. Our Bronze Sponsor Micropak, was also in attendance.

Keeping in Touch with BLC Members and Clients

During the three-day event held from 1st February until the 3rd of February, Michael visited many BLC customers and members to discuss current projects, new innovative products and to see what BLC can do more to support them and the Indian leather, footwear and components industry.

Michael also received a tour round the Iconium Leather Works Pvt; a Tannery member of the Leather Working Group. Here’s some of his snapshots of the tannery:
