Yarn Expo opens next week in Shanghai

August 21, 2009 - China

The fifth edition of Yarn Expo opens Tuesday at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre and will run until 27 August 2009. The show features nearly 90 exhibitors from 8 countries and regions, including China, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and Vietnam. The increased participation on the exhibitor side supports the show concept and timing, and proves Yarn Expo is considered a valuable platform for fibre and yarn suppliers to promote their products in China.

The timing of the fair has now been changed to run parallel to Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles and the China Knitting International Fair. Visitors will find a variety of textile related products and be able to source a wide range of fibres and yarn including compact combed cotton yarns and twisted yarns, chemical fibres, speciality fibres, functional fibres, eco-friendly fibres, blended yarns and fibres plus much more.

Another key feature is the chance to get up-to-date information on the latest technology in China.
