Peterborough, Cambridgeshire UK – November 2017: Following a successful show in Prague at the Railway Interiors Expo 2017, ELeather have high hopes for the continued growth of the market, both across Europe and globally.

Alex Bennett, Business Manager, Global Transport said “Despite this being one of the smaller shows we attend, the quality of visitors to our stand was extremely positive and gave a good indication of what is to come for the industry. There was a lot of discussion around design and transference of styles across sector, resulting in rail taking a much more proactive step towards interior design innovation  and passenger experience.”

Visitors were particularly interested in new materials, colours and finishes which was supported by ELeather’s increasing stock portfolio. Bennett continued:
