Following on from the success of recent years, the Freiberger Ledertage once again provided a forum for the exchange of information and experience among professionals in the tannery and leather industry in 2018. The high international participation and good response in the follow-up of the conference show the importance of the Freiberger Leather Days as an industry meeting and symposium and are also an incentive for the organizers.

This time the Freiberger Leather Days will be part of the XXXV. IULTCS World Congress in Dresden. There will be many opportunities to meet colleagues in the industry, to discuss ideas and current topics, and to cultivate networks and contacts during the Leather Days on a small scale or as participants in the World Congress on a large scale.

The VGCT and its organizing team (with the FILK as co-organizer) are looking forward to this demanding and exciting task and invite you today.

Those, who arrive one day earlier (26.6.2019) in Dresden are able to join the Elbe River Cruise Night: The city of Dresden stretches out on both sides of the Elbe River and is embedded into picturesque slopes along the River Elbe with wine-growing areas through the Elbe valley. The Elbe River snakes its way through the city with a length of 30 kilometers. Nine bridges provide crossing points throughout the city.
After first day´s scientific programme of the IULTCS World Congress, the Wednesday night river cruise will provide participants with some spectacular views on the city and its garden and wine growing suburbs. The tour starts in the historic centre of the city on the River where the Zwinger, the Semper Opera House, the Royal Palace, Frauenkirche and Brühl's Terrace form the typical “Canaletto View Silhouette”, before heading out of town along exclusive residential areas, castles, Wilhelminian quarters and vineyards. Upon return participants will have an idea why Dresden is said to be one of the most beautiful cities of Germany.
The River Cruise Night is included for participants of the XXXV IULTCS International Congress, participants of the Freiberg Leather Days are welcome to join for a fee of 70 € (includes all food and beverages).

And as every year the organizers are honoured to invite their guests to the Common Dinner. It is set for Thursday 27th of June and is included for both, participants of the XXXV IULTCS Congress and the Freiberg Leather Days.
The common dinner night is the highlight of the congress´ side programme and is set at the Congress Centre.
