Yarn Expo Autumn receives overwhelming response

Over 80 yarn and fibre suppliers from eight countries and regions joined Yarn Expo Autumn, which for the first time was held alongside Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Home Textiles and the China Knitting International Trade Fair last month at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Over 36,000 buyers attended the three fairs, while 3,321 came specifically to source yarns and fibres. Feedback on the fair was overall positive from both exhibitors and visitors.

The organisers of the fair were also pleased with the results of the show. “This is a very promising start,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Director of Trade Fairs for Messe Frankfurt in Hong Kong. “We are glad to see that many exhibitors have shown a lot of confidence in the show's concept and more importantly the change of timing. We expect the fair to continue to grow in the coming years as the yarn and fibre suppliers will benefit from the crossover of buyers from both the China International Knitting Fair and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles.”

“The timing is fine but the support that we have received from the fair organisers has been exceptional,” praised Mr Sandeep Kumar Goel, General Manager for Grupo Kaybee from Singapore.

Return exhibitor from Pakistan, Mr Shaukat Hassani, Senior Marketing Manager for Gul Ahmed, also believes the new combination is great. “The concept of holding the yarns show with the home textiles event is very good. It gives us a chance to meet with existing clients and make new contacts.”

A wide range of products was showcased at the show including natural yarns and fibres such as cotton, wool and flax/ramie; man-made yarns and fibres both regenerated and synthetic; speciality yarns and fibres; elastic yarns and fancy yarns.

“It's very important for us to attend one of the premier trade fairs in this industry in order for us to promote our company image, to keep abreast of the latest market trends and to meet clients,” said Mr Xu Lixin for Yantai Spandex Co, China's largest meta-aramid spandex producer. He further commented on the visitors at the fair, “the buyers here are very professional and many have come to our booth.”

Another first-time exhibitor, Tata Textiles Mills Ltd from Pakistan was also pleased with their choice to participate and will expand their booth for the following Yarn Expo show. “Everybody is talking about China. There is certainly lots of potential here, which is why we are here," said Mr Muhammad Sehban, Senior Manager for Tata Textile Mills Ltd. "The quality of the buyers we met during the fair is very good and the services from the organisers are very impressive.”

Visitors commented on the variety of the products on offer. “I met with a number of domestic suppliers but I came to the show to look for international ones," said Mr Alan Wang, Deputy General Manager for Zhejiang Rongchang Trading Co Ltd. "The variety was great. I have found some new products and I am very pleased."

Yarn Expo Spring is scheduled to take place from 31 March – 2 April 2010 at the China World Trade Center, Beijing, China.
