Spring Edition with 12,000 visitors
Taking place with four other textile events for the first time, the 2016 Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles attracted over 12,000 visitors to source from a total of 182 exhibitors.
Taking place at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), the three-day fair concluded with wide praise from both exhibitors and buyers. Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, was delighted with the favourable feedback from the fair participants. “We believed that we would get a strong response bringing the fair back in March being the peak sourcing period for finished products in China, as well the fair taking place concurrently with four other textile shows, and the participants’ comments have proved that this was indeed the case. Many of them reported to us that they’ve found ample new business opportunities and shared their optimistic prediction for the industry’s future development,” Ms Wen commented on the last day of the fair.
For the first time, the Spring Edition was held concurrently with four other textile events: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC – China International Fashion Fair and PH Value – China International Knitting Fair. This new arrangement impressed both exhibitors and buyers for broadening opportunities for the industry.
The Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Autumn Edition 2016 will take place from Wednesday, 24 to Saturday, 27 August 2016. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring & Autumn Editions are organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).
