The first Polish global natural leather auction - an investment that brings benefits
Five to seven auctions a year organized on-site. Regular visits from buyers from all over the world. Each of the auctions lasting about a week. In practice, this means a chance to accommodate participants, provide them with food and provide attractive forms of spending free time. It will undoubtedly become an incentive to develop the local HoReCa market.
Fur Hub is a huge investment. The planned project includes a conference centre with an extensive auction hall, a powerful logistics centre, large office and warehouse space, a transport network enabling efficient access to FurHub, as well as professional shipment of skins to all corners of the world. Airports and rail transport located near FurHub will gain in importance.
The implementation of such a costly investment will result in huge funds being allocated to the region where the auction will be located. It will also create around 600 workplaces.
The creation of a global auction of natural leather in Poland means handling thousands of international transactions, organizing subsequent auction sessions, logistics and customs services for leather imported to auctions, and their preparation. Cataloguing by quality, supervising storage conditions, preparing for presentation and shipping skins mean the creation of new jobs. Increased availability of the highest quality raw material for furrier factories will also be an opportunity for the development of this sector.
Together with the partners of the Auction, we intend to create an opportunity to learn from the experience and learn from the best designers, creators and artists who use the natural raw material which is leather. This will undoubtedly affect the development of education functioning in cooperation with the Auction. Fields such as commodity science, appraisal, furrier, management and international trade will become extremely important. The auction will also need a number of qualified managers.
Can Polish cities compete with Copenhagen, Toronto or Helsinki for the title of the world's capital of fashion and fur? Definitely yes!
What can we gain?
So far, trade in the fur sector has mainly taken place in Denmark, Finland and Canada. These countries benefited directly from the operation of the auction - apart from the obvious revival of the market, which was possible thanks to the flow of huge financial resources, the auction also meant significant commissions resulting from trading in furs. The Treasury will benefit from everything, and so will all of us.
