South Africa


The SLTC convention held yearly, has over the years only existed thanks to the Southern African Leather Industry contributions to send their staff members to the convention and for this, we thank you.

The committee feels that the Southern African Leather Industry should maintain that contribution and once again send one or more members of their staff to the SLTC convention, we would also appreciate the fact that senior staff join the SLTC convention.

This year we have managed to secure the highly successful speaker that spoke last year; Sam Setter; and several chemical companies, as well as suppliers of machine for the finishing of hides/skins.

This year the SLTC convention will be held at the Green Leaves Country Lodge outside Pretoria between the 17th May and 19th May. The main papers will focus on the subject; Finishing, Environment and machines.

If this would be of interest to you and your team, you are welcome to join the convention. We hereby kindly ask that you, the Southern African Leather Industry, send staff to the convention to make this as successful, as many in the past have been.
