Messe to host two home textile fairs in China in March

Two upcoming Intertextile Home Textile shows continue to serve as the substantial trading platforms during China’s key sourcing season for home textile and furnishing products.  Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, which welcomed 279 exhibitors in 2012, will be held from 5 – 7 March 2013 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Intertextile Guangzhou Hometextile China will take place from 18 – 21 March 2013 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex along with three concurrent events. Last year, the show’s quality satisfied the majority of the 21,142 visitors.

“The Intertextile Home Textile spring fairs in Shanghai and Guangzhou have become important events on the calendar of industry leaders and decision-makers, who will have the opportunity to take advantage of the demand for fine home textiles and furnishings in the domestic market,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

Intertextile Guangzhou Hometextile China with more than 200 exhibitors from China, Germany, Hong Kong and Korea will showcase their home upholstery products on 20,000 sqm of floor space in Guangzhou. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles with over 330 exhibitors, from Austria, China, Hong Kong, Italy, Korea, Pakistan and UK, will gather together thousands of potential buyers in Shanghai, “March is the ideal time for industry players to be in China,” Ms Wen further explains.

Take advantage of the fast-growing domestic market

The sales of home textiles and furnishings are always entwined with the housing market’s ups and downs. From January to November 2012, total real estate investment in China reached RMB 6.5 trillion, an increase of 16.7% year-on-year. In the same period of time, the total amount of imported textile materials and products was USD 18.2 billion, a year-on-year growth rate of 4.6%.

The home textile and furnishing industry is optimistic about domestic sales of high-end imported goods in 2013, such as upholstery, furniture fabrics and leather; and tassels, trimmings and other accessories.

Home textiles and furnishings are now more than functional household goods – the market has shown that many people are attracted to items that boast attention to detail and meaningful, interesting innovation. The Intertextile Home Textile fairs in Shanghai and Guangzhou in coming March therefore, offer a platform and opportunity to help traders better understand the burgeoning domestic market.

Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA).

Intertextile Guangzhou Hometextile China is 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. The fair is held together with the China International Furniture Fair, the China International Outdoor & Leisure Fair and Homedecor & Housewares China.
