Taking up success of the Freiberg Leather Days offering this year again a forum for exchange of information and experience between experts of the European tanning and leather industry preparations for the 7th Freiberg Leather Days on June 13 and 14, 2018 are currently underway. For this time the town Freiberg wil have the honour to receive again the Leather Days.

The high degree of international participation and the good feedback after the conference demonstrate that the Freiberg Leather Days could be further established as a meeting point and conference of the European tanning and leather industry and are moreover motivation for the organizers.

We invite experts to contribute to an interesting and divers lecture programme.
