SHIFTING LOCALES: After 33 years in Bologna, Lineapelle is moving. Starting from the next winter edition, taking place Sept. 10-12, the leather trade show will relocate to Milan in the Fiera Milano Rho fairgrounds. Lineapelle organizing body’s decision caused discontent among BolognaFiere’s board members. “BolognaFiere and its councilors in Lineapelle consider grave and unacceptable that Lineapelle’s partner association brought forward an initiative aimed at signing agreements with another fairground, ignoring internal discussions and without informing BolognaFiere about the decision to change the trade show’s location,” said a press report released by BolognaFiere on Thursday.
