According to the organiser, a new era begins this week as Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2015 opens in a brand-new venue with a record number of exhibitors participating.

Over 2,600 suppliers from 24 countries and regions as against 1,469 in 2014 will take part in the biggest ever Spring Edition from March 18–20 March at the National Exhibition and Convention Center.

The fair is spread across more than 100,000 sq. metres, with international exhibitors in hall 7.2, domestic suppliers in halls 7.1, 8.1 and 8.2, and Chinese and overseas accessories exhibitors in the East Hall.

Europe will once again be well represented at the fair in the ever-popular SalonEurope in hall 7.2 and around 180 suppliers of premium fabrics and accessories will be housed in this area.

This includes 11 trend forecasters, which also includes the Milano Unica Pavilion from Italy, the Portugal Pavilion, the Germany zone, and the France and Premium Wool zones which make their debut.

“The diversity that Asia has to offer will also be on display in country and region pavilions from Japan, Korea, Pakistan and Taiwan, as well as the Texprocil Pavilion from India,” says a Messe Frankfurt press release.

And for the first time at an Intertextile fair, the Origin Africa Pavilion from Kenya will be present. Also within hall 7.2 is the Verve for Design zone which doubles in size compared to the 2014 spring fair.

This area features design studios from Australia, France, Hong Kong, Italy and the UK displaying their creative and original fabric pattern designs.

While ‘Verve for Design’ returns to the fair this year, the ‘All About Sustainability’ debuts there after its popularity at last October’s Autumn Edition.

This zone is in response to increased interest on sustainability in the industry, especially from China in recent years.

Chinese exhibitors are grouped together by product end-use. Shirting, casual wear and suiting fabrics in hall 7.1, ladieswear and lingerie & swimwear suppliers in hall 8.1 and functional wear exhibitors in hall 8.2.

This year’s fringe programme will once again keep the industry up to date on the latest trends, market information and more.

Four international and Chinese Trend Forums provide guidance for next season’s trends, with the Intertextile Directions Trend Forum in hall 7.2 designed by experts from the around the world.

A series of seminars with speakers from both China and abroad will be held with topics which include Design and Trends, Technology, Sustainability Issues, and Market Information and Business Strategies.

Three concurrent textile industry events also take place at the same venue; Yarn Expo Spring, PH Value and the 23rd China International Fashion Fair. (AR)
