12th Freiberg Leather Days

FOR OVER 10 YEARS - THE BRANCH MEETING OF THE EUROPEAN TANNING AND LEATHER INDUSTRY

The Freiberg Leather Days have been the meeting place for the European tanning and leather industry since 2012. Every two years in Freiberg and in the other year abroad, the VGCT and the FILK Freiberg as co-organisers invite experts, researchers and specialists to exchange ideas and actively participate in shaping the technical content. This year, the 12th Freiberg Leather Days will take place on June 12 and 13, 2024 in Salzburg / Austria at the invitation of the Austrian association VÖLT.



See you on June 12 and 13, 2024 in Salzburg / Austria?

The 12th Freiberg Leather Days on June 12 and 13, 2024 will take place as a presence-only event in Salzburg / Austria. The VGCT and FILK Freiberg as co-organizer are looking forward to seeing you again.

The border city of Salzburg lies at the foot of the Eastern Alps and is known as the birthplace of Mozart, a World Heritage Site and a festival city.

It was founded in 696 as a bishop's seat. The main sources of income were salt mining, trade in salt and trade in gold, which was brought to Salzburg from the Tauern mountains.

In the 17th century, Salzburg was developed into a residential city and as a result many baroque palaces and churches were built, which still characterize the cityscape today.

The most famous Salzburg resident is the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was born there in 1756.

A longer visit beyond the conference is worthwhile!


WE MEET AT THE IMLAUER HOTEL PITTER SALZBURG

The IMLAUER Hotel Pitter offers us enough space for meetings and networking in Salzburg / Austria in 2024. It is located near the famous Mirabell Gardens and Mozart's residence. The beautiful old town of Salzburg is just a few minutes' walk away. 

The conference room is large and has 6 jewel-shaped glass domes, which are unique in Austria and provide plenty of daylight. The Murano glass chandeliers are also a small highlight. Thanks to its location facing the inner courtyard, you can listen to the lectures in a quiet, undisturbed atmosphere.

IMLAUER Hotels have been awarded the Austrian Ecolabel since 2015. Among other things, they value regional added value and "green catering". Be curious.
