China is still the best place to trade in textiles & accessories
Apr '08
One of the leading textile trade fairs in Asia will feature 40% more trade space and new special zones for lingerie fabrics and accessories when it runs 20 - 23 October 2008 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Shanghai. Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will include an unprecedented 115,000 sqm of trade space, making it one of the largest textile trade destinations in the world.

The show includes 10 halls - three more than in 2007 - and a variety of special events including a new lingerie and swimwear fabrics zone, a complete seminar programme, trend forums and more.

The show will also feature country and region pavilions with some of the biggest names in international textiles. Pavilions confirmed so far will come from Germany, Japan, Italy, Portugal, Korea and Taiwan. Several companies will create group pavilions to serve as a one-stop-shop for their fibres and fabrics, including BASF, Dow, Invista and Lenzing.

Lingerie and swimwear - key segments in the textile market
Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics has developed into a comprehensive textile trade event featuring a complete range of textiles and accessories. The show is now expanding into lingerie and swimwear textiles, a fast-growing segment of the market.

Demand for high-quality imported lingerie and swimwear textiles is surging in China. Rising incomes and advertising and product education campaigns have created a boom in high-end undergarments. There are more than 200 million women of bra-wearing age in China, and annual consumption will soon exceed 600 million pieces. The underwear market is expected to expand 20% per year for the next 10 years while famous names in lingerie open stores across the country every day.
