i.L.M -More than Leathergoods

i.L.M – More than Leathergoods  /  Spring/Summer Styles 2018  /  Lederwarenmesse Offenbach

In Offenbach tut sich was, man spricht inzwischen von der “PERLE am Main” oder auch “Sexy Boomtown”. Es ist wahr, ganz neue Wohngebiete wurden und werden weiter erschlossen, wie z.B. die Hafen-City, so daß sich sogar viele Frankfurter in Offenbach niederlassen. Davon profiert auch die Lederwarenmesse Offenbach. In diesem Jahr – übrigens die 147. Messe in Offenbach – kamen 300 Aussteller. Dank der neuen Atrium-Halle konnte man mehr Aussteller unterbringen. i.L.M -More than Leathergoods weiterlesen
