Intertextile Shanghai expected to host 4,000 exhibitors
May '15
Less than five months away, organisers of autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, Messe Frankfurt said the trade show is already on target to exceed last year’s exhibition space.

Located at the new and larger National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), the fair will cover around 200,000 sq. metres of space as against 170,000 sq. metres last year.

“Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics which runs from October 13-15, 2015 is expected to host some 4,000 exhibitors compared to 3,844 in 2014,” Messe Frankfurt informed in a press release.

Following the success of March’s Spring Edition at the same venue where the visitor figure rose 56 per cent, the fair’s organisers are confident that the autumn edition will be just as beneficial for exhibitors.

According to Messe Frankfurt, as the apparel fabrics and accessories industry’s largest trade fair, buyers have a huge selection to choose from no matter their quality or price requirements.

At the high end of the market, SalonEurope caters to those looking for premium and niche products, while the Milano Unica Pavilion continues to be a strong attraction for buyers.

Bringing more diversity to the product line up, particularly in terms of innovation are country and region pavilions from India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.

While these pavilions help buyers to source based on the product’s origin, a number of product zones allow buyers to discover the latest developments within certain product segments.

In recent editions, a large focus of the fair has been creating these zones based on the market’s current and future demand to benefit both exhibitors and buyers.

This year sees the return of the Premium Wool Zone, Verve for Design and All About Sustainability, while entire halls are once again dedicated to Beyond Denim and accessories, in addition to a functional fabrics zone.

With three well-established concurrent fairs taking place in the same venue, Yarn Expo Autumn, CHIC and PH Value, the shows put together cover the entire textile supply chain.

“Fair visitors will also be able to discover the latest trends and gain market updates through the fair’s fringe programs,” Messe Frankfurt added.

This includes the Intertextile Directions Trend Forum, Fabrics China Trend Forums, China International Fabrics Design & Fabrics Creation Competition, and a wide range of seminars and product presentations. (AR)
