160° ILM: “TIME IS NOW!”

For more than 70 years, ILM has been the world’s leading trade fair for leather goods, bags, luggage and accessories. The next important anniversary event of the 160th edition is scheduled for 31 August to 2 September 2024 at Messe Offenbach, with some 250 brands from over 20 countries expected to attend. Under the motto “TIME IS NOW!”, ILM is calling on the entire industry to proactively embrace the current zeitgeist and capitalise on the opportunities presented by the trade fair as an indispensable time for discussion, knowledge, innovation and business.

“Structural change in the retail sector is a fact, which means that brand strategies and product ranges have to be fundamentally rethought and reorganised,” said Arnd Hinrich Kappe, Managing Director of Messe Offenbach. It is the right time to reinterpret one’s brand value and to consider retail not only as a sales area, but also as a place of community and experience’.

Protagonists will be the spring/summer 2025 collections of leather goods, bags, luggage and accessories. ILM will also be enhanced by seminars held by experts, insights into the season’s fashion trends, and practice-oriented presentations.

The date to mark in your calendar is therefore 31 August to 2 September 2024 for the great leather goods fair in Offenbach.
