Meet CBI companies at Who's Next 2023

Women making leather products

Are you looking for high-quality, finished leather products from reliable suppliers? Find them at the Who's Next trade fair from 2-4 September 2023 in Paris, France. Visit us at the CBI Country Pavilion Leather Products Ethiopia in the Maroquinerie hall at Porte de Versailles, stand G110/K111.

During this edition of Who's Next, 11 promising companies supported by CBI will showcase their new collections of leather products. These companies have been participating in CBI's export coaching project Leather Products from Ethiopia. This project helps selected small and medium-sized enterprises strengthen their businesses. It also helps them meet European Union market requirements, source responsibly, and build connections with European and regional markets. Visit us at Who's Next to see the companies' assortment of sustainably-sourced handbags, gloves and accessories like wallets and credit card holders.

Ethiopian Leather Industries Association

The Ethiopian Leather Industries Association (ELIA) will also be at the trade fair. ELIA represents the interests of local and foreign-owned tanneries and leather manufacturers. The association has 75 members and provides market information services and promotion activities. It also helps with input imports and connects the government and private sector.
