The 2 editions of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics reached new heights this year with number of visitors showing an increase of 15 per cent for both fairs and strong feedback received on product variety, show quality and innovation. The next Spring edition will be held from March 11-13, 2020 at National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC) in Shanghai.

Unburdened by economic uncertainties and trade concerns, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring edition supported the global textile industry by welcoming a record-breaking 94,661 visitors from over 110 countries and regions in 2019. The fair presented itself as an exceptional spring / summer apparel sourcing platform for buyers from China and worldwide with 3,273 exhibitors from 23 countries and regions. While the Chinese exhibitors showed off the country’s strong capability in apparel exports as an international manufacturing hub, a 12 per cent increase in overseas exhibitors also illustrated the attractiveness of China’s large domestic purchasing power.

The steady growth of visitor numbers, especially international visitors, provided a greater chance for suppliers to meet more potential buyers, such as garment manufacturers, designers and retailers from Korea, Japan, India, the US, Russia, Italy and Spain. On top of understanding more about the Chinese market, around 90 per cent of overseas exhibitors were also satisfied with promoting their new, high quality products and increasing their brand exposure at Intertextile.

Occupying seven halls at the NECC, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring edition 2020 will showcase the industry’s latest domestic and international trends at specialised product zones and pavilions. This will be complemented by the Intertextile Directions Trend Forum and the Fabrics China Trend Forums, focusing on international and domestic forecasts respectively, and a series of seminars and panel discussions presented by industry experts from China and overseas. These fringe programme events will help exhibitors promote their brand and direct potential clients to their booths as well, while the highly appreciated business matching programme will facilitate the sourcing progress with more convenience and better suit buyers’ needs.

Participants of Intertextile Apparel may benefit from the four concurrent fairs: the Spring edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, Yarn Expo Spring, CHIC and PH Value. These fairs combined will create a textile platform of unrivalled scale and variety to offer new opportunities and business connections to exhibitors and buyers at one convenient location.

“We also have buyers from our company sourcing at Yarn Expo, so the whole platform with the concurrent fairs is very effective. The Chinese denim market is getting stronger, and it’s huge, so there’s a lot of potential. Intertextile is one of the best shows in the industry for learning about the market,” said Muhammad Tariq Alavi, senior manager for marketing and business development of Soorty Enterprises from Pakistan.

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring edition 2020 will be co-organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd; the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT; and the China Textile Information Centre.
