In 2019, the VGCT and FILK as co-organizer want to offer the possibility for all experts and specialists of the tanning and leather industry and cross-industry to meet colleagues, to discuss recent issues and ideas and to network with national and international participants.

We invite experts to contribute to an interesting and divers lecture programme. If you want to present new ideas, knowledge or applications in the tanning and leather technology, in other adjacent field or the field of application, we are looking forward to your submission. Please use the online form to log in and submit by January 15th, 2019.

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.
