Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles returns in August

After a successful 2014 edition where new exhibitor, visitor and exhibition space records were set, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Autumn Edition returns in 2015 from August 26–28.

According to fair organisers Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, Intertextile Shanghai has become well established as the leading home textiles event in the region.

The fair will take place for the first time at a brand-new venue, the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), with a total of six halls and around 160,000 sqm of exhibition space.

The fair continues to expand its offerings of wall coverings, carpets and rugs, and decorative fabrics to match domestic demand, in addition to upholstery, carpets and rugs.

This edition will feature the Exquisite Europe area, Editor Zone and the Intertextile Design Boutique, with all expected to be hugely popular with buyers again.

“After 20 years in existence, this fair is now known as the premium platform in Asia, as evidenced by the 10 per cent increase in buyers last year to more than 43,000,” Wendy Wen, senior general manager said.

The new venue is a highly modern exhibition venue, and with 500,000 sqm of exhibition space is reportedly the largest in the world.

Of further benefit for exhibitors, it is expected that this new venue will attract more quality domestic buyers.

The fairground is located in the west of the city in Hongqiao, making it closer to the textile manufacturing hubs in surrounding provinces such as Jiangsu and Zhejiang.

It is also positioned very close to Hongqiao airport, as well as the Hongqiao transport hub which has high-speed rail, regular rail and bus connections with the rest of the country.

The organisers of Intertextile Guangzhou Hometextile China confirmed last month that this sister fair of Intertextile Shanghai would no longer be held, with the decision to take effect from 2015.

However, after a comprehensive discussion with the fair’s stakeholders, it was decided that exhibitors and buyers would be better served with all efforts focused on Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Autumn Edition. (AR)
