This year, nearly 600 exhibitors will use the Intertextile Pavilion at the Shenzhen International Trade Fair for Apparel Fabrics and Accessories as their access point to the Southern China textile market. Halls 6 - 8 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Centre will host suppliers from China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Pakistan and Taiwan on 22,500 sqm of floor space - an increase of over 30% on 2012.
The fair, to be held from 11 - 13 July, is located in Shenzhen, the largest ladieswear garment production hub in China. Around 2,500 apparel companies and over 800 fashion brands are located there.
The city is also in close proximity to several high-end garment manufacturing cities including Zhongshan and Shaxi - specialists in casual wear - and Huizhou, which specialises in menswear. Strategically held in Shenzhen, the fair will enhance more business opportunities.
Shenzhen's apparel industry production value was more than RMB100 billion in 2012, while exports were approximately USD10 billion. Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manger of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, organiser of Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen, believes the location of the fair is an attractive selling point to exhibitors. "This huge market provides unlimited opportunities for companies looking to expand their business in China, and shows why many domestic and international fashion brands continue to attend this fair," she said.
In 2012, more than 13,000 buyers from 24 countries and regions visited the fair to source the latest high-quality fabrics and accessories for casual wear, ladieswear and functional / sportswear items, as well as shirting fabrics.
Debut Korea and India pavilions add diversity to exhibitor line-up
In addition to individual exhibitors, two debut country pavilions will showcase the best on offer from Korea and India. The Korea Pavilion, co-organised by the Korea Fashion Textile Association, will host around
40 suppliers. And the India Pavilion will feature around 10 exhibitors, and is organised in conjunction with Texprocil, the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India.
This fair will run concurrently with the 13th China (Shenzhen) International Brand Clothing & Accessories Fair in halls 1 and 9, which will include a fashion show located in hall 5.
Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the Shenzhen Garment Industry Association.
