Momentum at Yarn Expo Spring to continue: Messe Frankfurt
Jan '15
Organisers of Yarn Expo Spring 2015, Messe Frankfurt are expecting the strong momentum set by a large hike in visitor numbers at last year’s edition to continue in the 2015 edition too.

The last Spring edition saw over 200 per cent more visitors as against the Spring 2013 edition coming to source from 233 exhibitors.

Yarn Expo Spring 2015 takes place at a new venue, the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from March 18–20, in Hall 7.2 on an exhibition area of 8,000 sq metres.

Yarn Expo showcases a wide spectrum of yarns including cotton, wool, flax or regenerated flax, and man-made fibres and yarns as well as specialty products including elastic, and fancy and blended yarns.

“Last year’s significant jump in the visitor figure indicated that the yarn and fibre market in China is still resilient and full of potential,” said Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd.

She added, “This fair is increasingly gaining popularity among trade buyers around the globe and this year will be no exception.”

Last year, over 20,212 buyers from 72 countries and regions visited the fair, while 46 per cent of them were manufacturers.

In order to capture the ever growing Chinese market, Indian and Pakistani exhibitors have already confirmed their participation at the upcoming Spring Edition.

“Our Indian and Pakistani exhibitors like this fair, as they can not only tap into the Chinese market here, but also connect with buyers from the Americas, Europe and other Asian countries,” Wen continued.

The 2015 edition will feature the Chinese Fibre Hall once again to showcase innovative man-made products from the country, such as nylon, viscose filament, and renewable & recycled fibres.

Moreover, the fair is increasingly known for showing latest technologies in the innovative yarn section as visitors can gain inspiration and market guidance in the Trend Area and through a series of seminars.

Held concurrently with Yarn Expo Spring 2015 are four other textile trade events, namely Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, PH Value 2015, China International Fashion Fair 2015 (CHIC) and the Planet Textile Conference.

“Together these five events will bring apparel fabrics, yarn and fibres, knitwear and other fashion garments under one roof, presenting a one-stop sourcing platform to the whole textile industry,” Messe Frankfurt said. (AR)
