TIL participates in Lineapelle 2014 in Bologna, Italy
March 30, 2014
Lineapelle – one of the worlds’ premier leather industry trade events – is held twice every year in the Italian city of Bologna. It brings together some of the leading fashion leather tanneries and suppliers to the leather, footwear and accessories industry. More than 1,000 exhibitors, of which 523 are tanneries, vie for the attention of the more than 18,000 visitors to the event. Over the years, the Tata International display stand has become a regular fixture at the event. This year, with a stand carrying a fantastic display of vibrant spring colours, inspired by the Indian festival of Holi, Tata International (TIL) displayed its Spring-Summer 15 collection, produced in Dewas (India).
Bologna remains a working trade show attracting visitors from all over Europe, North America and Asia and this year’s event held between March 11-13, was no exception. A steady stream of customers visited the TIL stand to review the leather items displayed and to discuss business opportunities. By the end of the show Mr Jon Hopper, Global Head Finished Leather Sales and Marketing, Mr Ravi Shankar, Senior Sales Manager, TSEA Dongguan, and Mr Bharat Dubey, Sales Executive, Goat Business Unit – Dewas, recorded a number of customer engagements that generated requests, to be taken up by the sales teams in Dewas and Dongguan.
