Increasing in scale, up 30% from 2010, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics opens this autumn 18 October 2011 and runs for four days at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Covering 13 halls on nearly 150,000 sqm of trade space, the increase will accommodate two halls dedicated for accessories and trims, three international halls featuring country and region pavilions from Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea, Taiwan as well as new country pavilion entry from Spain while the remaining halls will focus on Chinese suppliers.

“We understand that 2011 will continue to be a challenging year for textile players due to several factors including rising raw material costs, inflation growth and higher labour overheads,” stated Ms Wendy Wen, Director for Trade Fairs, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. Adding: “However, we firmly believe that when faced with challenges new opportunities arise. The increase in size only proves that insiders have chosen Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics as their best possible solution to tap into the international marketplace all conveniently located in one place.”

For the first time at the Shanghai fair, Messe Frankfurt and Eco Textile News will jointly co-organise Planet Textiles conference on sustainability.

Mr Delman Lee, Director, TAL Group (Hong Kong)
Mr Pat Nie Woo, Sustainable Fashion Business Consortium (Hong Kong)
