Under the campaign motto “BE BOLD”, Messe Offenbach invites you to the 159th edition of ILM, the trade fair for leather goods, bags, travel goods and accessories, from 3 to 5 February 2024. 250 exhibitors from over 20 countries are expected. Including well over 30 new brands.
In addition to the consistently reliable order business, the focus will be on new trade fair segments and progress. It thus remains true to its mission statement: tradition meets innovation to boldly shape the future of the industry together.
ILM has been a reliable and important hub for the industry’s order business for over 70 years. It presents a wide range of brands and products and is also an innovative platform for practice-orientated concepts for the retail trade.
The new SIDELINES trade fair segment, which was presented for the first time at the last edition, once again offers a platform for high-quality accessory brands. Retailers have the opportunity here to supplement their product range with a selection of high-margin additional offers.
The FUTURE HUB presents forward-looking concepts for retail and industry. The lively think tank will have an even more prominent space directly in the entrance area. Visitors and exhibitors can expect a series of practice-orientated presentations, discussion panels and trend forecasts with renowned industry experts. “In 159 editions, ILM has developed from a classic trade fair into an important industry meeting place. ILM stands for strong order business, future concepts and solutions for our retail sector,” explains Arnd Hinrich Kappe, Managing Director of Messe Offenbach.
