The 26th edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles has concluded successfully on August 26. This year, the fair welcomed a total of 643 exhibitors and attracted over 25,000 trade buyers. Despite the challenging times we are all facing, the fair continued to be the ideal platform to connect global suppliers and buyers from the home textile industry.
In view of the current international travel restrictions, the fair launched a brand new online business matching platform to facilitate business exchanges between suppliers and buyers from around the world. 60 exhibitors were connected to about 200 buyers from over 50 countries and regions through live-stream product presentations and real-time chats on the platform.
“Yesterday we had a live-stream product presentation, which attracted a lot of buyers. The online platform is useful for us as we could showcase our new products and design concepts to overseas buyers, and let them know that we are still here to serve them,” Yu Qian Ru, business manager, Suzhou Roufang Textile Technology Co Ltd, China, said in a press release.
“I am glad that the fair provided the online business matching service where I have seen a lot of quality furniture and decorative fabric exhibitors. I’m interested in connecting with them,” Azam Osman, manager, the Factory Depot (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, said.
“We decided to exhibit at Intertextile because we depend on this fair to promote our new products. This fair provided a much-needed business platform for the industry as many trade shows were cancelled in the first half of the year. The pandemic has brought great changes to the market trends as well. For instance, customers are now focusing more on their health and safety, so products with anti-bacterial properties are becoming increasingly popular,” Gerry Xue, head of Home Segment, China Textile, Lenzing Fibers (Shanghai) Co Ltd, Austria, said in the release.
“I came to this fair to find new developments, new marketing ideas, interesting filling and fabric composition blends. It's quite promising for the bedding segment in general, and I was able to find a couple of really good and useful suppliers. This year I was pleased to see some trends at Intertextile. I'm happy to see quite a number of Chinese companies cooperating with the inventors, and becoming innovation leaders,” Elena Salsera, quality director and China Branch general manager, Togas Group, US, said.
“I have been visiting Intertextile for nearly 20 years, and I decided to come this year because I am interested in seeing new upholstery and curtain fabrics. I managed to find a few potential suppliers and requested them to send me some samples. The worldwide pandemic has affected millions of people and a lot of companies across the world including us. I think this year’s fair is important for my company and the entire industry as many trade shows were cancelled in the first half of the year. At this fair, I was able to meet many companies in one place which saved me a lot of time,” Abhishek Agrawal, director, Rikatex International Limited, Hong Kong, said.
