Shanghai to host first Asian version of SURTEX in 2013
Dec '12
SURTEX Asia, a unique trade fair that aims to address all the issues related to textile surface designing for Asian manufacturers, will be held in Shanghai, China from 25th to 27th August, 2013. 
Based on the lines of highly-regarded SURTEX in New York City, the first Asian version of the fair would feature more than 50 apex textile design studios from the UK, Europe, North America, South America and Japan.
Over 1,500 manufacturers, specializing in decorative fabrics, curtains, upholstery, floor and wall coverings, as well as contract and apparel textiles, from China, Southeast Asia and the Middle East are expected to attend the three-day-long fair.
A special conference giving valuable insights on latest international surface design trends in terms of color, style and pattern, will be organized off the show floor for the Asian community.
Launched by the US-based tradeshow and event production company GLM, SURTEX Asia will also introduce a bilingual, comprehensive website on the day of its launch. 
Surface designing, also known as fabric embellishment, is a method with which the designers utilize fabrics as an abundant source of dimensional and structural enhancements, with ample opportunities for experimenting with color, texture and design.
