Lineapelle has just organised the first training course for footwear technicians in China, in Canton, from November 18-23. It was organised with the cooperation of the Canton’s University and the town government.

The objective was to promote the use of quality leather and components for the footwear industry. The course was carried out by an Italian designer with the cooperation of some important companies exhibiting in Lineapelle and was addressed to high level designers and technicians already working in Chinese footwear companies. Lineapelle is now also looking to organise the same kind of training activity in some eastern European countries.
