One of the biggest organisers of textile trade fairs, Messe Frankfurt said it will relocate Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo to a new venue, the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), to allow further growth, and also discontinue Interstoff Asia Essential being held in Hong Kong.

“Textile manufacturing and fashion buying offices have steadily shifted from Hong Kong to China in recent years and following these developments, it has decided to focus all of its efforts in China”, Messe Frankfurt said.

“We believe that by allocating more of our resources into China, the world’s textile manufacturing powerhouse, we can better accommodate our exhibitors’ and visitors’ needs”, said Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt.

The size and scale of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – the biggest textile trade fair in the world showcasing apparel fabrics and accessories has kept on increasing.

Over 3,700 exhibitors from more than 30 countries have confirmed their participation this October as this fair celebrates its 20th anniversary. Last year’s edition saw a record-breaking visitor number of over 69,000 from 98 countries and regions.

“This fair has seen a steady upward trend over the past 10 years as its exhibitor number has more than tripled compared to 2004, while the visitor number has expanded four-fold,” Braun said.

Among other changes, next year’s Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and Yarn Expo Spring will relocate to a new venue, the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, to allow further growth.

“The 23rd China International Fashion Fair 2015, also known as CHIC, will be held concurrently with these two fairs, creating more synergy effects by bringing the whole textile and fashion industry together,” Braun continued.

Another textile trade fair that covers the southern Chinese market, Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen, saw 17,500 buyers from 27 countries and regions and 700 exhibitors from eight countries and regions at the recent edition this July – an all-time high.

“We are confident that by leveraging our business know-how and resources from Hong Kong to fairs in Mainland China, this growth will continue for the foreseeable future,” said Braun.

Messe Frankfurt organises over 40 textile trade fairs and symposiums around the globe. With Heimtextil India in June and Texworld Istanbul this November, Messe Frankfurt has expanded its portfolio of trade fairs around the globe this year and now extends to over nine countries. (AR)
