New venue for Intertextile 2012
Dec '11
Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition 2012 has been moved forward to the beginning of spring and will take place from 29 February – 2 March, accommodating China's peak sourcing season for bedding and upholstery sectors. Next year, the fair will also be held in a new venue, with better facilities: the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Last year's show attracted 9,755 buyers while 96% attending came from China. “To meet the demand of our Chinese customers, I find it necessary to source in the spring season,” said Ms Qi Wen, owner of Wuxi Ruyi Curtain, a domestic buyer who welcomes the date change.

“Positive visitor feedback proves that we are moving in the right direction with the new show dates, which will better serve the domestic Chinese market,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Director Trade Fairs for Messe Frankfurt (HK) Co Ltd. “Apart from the Shanghai spring fair, we also offer two additional home textile events in China, covering the entire industry value chain,” she added.

Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Spring focuses on the domestic market while the Autumn edition reaches a worldwide market from 28 – 30 August 2012 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Pudong, Shanghai. Both editions are organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).

Further complimenting the range of home textile events in China is Intertextile Guangzhou Hometextile China that features upholstery suppliers and buyers. The fair organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT, the China Home Textile Association (CHTA) and the China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition Corp takes place from 18 – 21 March 2012 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou, China.

Messe Frankfurt is Germany's leading trade fair organiser, with 448.3 million euros in sales and more than 1,600 active employees worldwide. The Messe Frankfurt Group has a global network of 28 subsidiaries, five branch offices and 52 international Sales Partners, giving it a presence for its customers in more than 150 countries.
