Messe Frankfurt has announced that its three textile fairs in Shanghai will be postponed from March 2020 to a later date, due to the Novel Coronavirus outbreak. This includes Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Yarn Expo Spring and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition which were due to be held in from March11-13, 2020.

This follows the recent announcement that the company’s other fairs to be held in China in the coming two months, Prolight + Sound Guangzhou, SPS – Industrial Automation Fair Guangzhou (SIAF) and Asiamold in Guangzhou, and Toy & Edu, Baby & Stroller and Licensing China in Shenzhen – have also been postponed until later in the year, according to Messe Frankfurt.

“Messe Frankfurt has been an active player in the China market for over 30 years now, so we stand fully behind the government’s efforts to control the outbreak. This includes the recent suspension of large-scale trade and economic events in a number of cities, so with this and the wellbeing of all our stakeholders in mind, we have made the decision to reschedule our upcoming textile fairs in Shanghai to a later date. Our teams are making every effort to find suitable alternatives, but we will only make the decision to go ahead with these fairs when it is deemed safe to do so,” Wendy Wen, senior general manager of Messe Frankfurt said.

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt; the sub-council of textile industry, CCPIT; and the China Textile Information Centre. The co-organisers of Yarn Expo Spring are Messe Frankfurt and CCPIT. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles is co-organised by Messe Frankfurt and CCPIT; and the China Home Textile Association (CHTA). All three fairs are held concurrently with the PH Value and CHIC textile fairs, which will also be postponed.
