Yarn Expo Spring proves yarn biz gaining popularity

Apr '08
"The US and Japan have long been the leaders of this kind of fibre but China is starting to develop these technologies as well.

We hope to introduce our products to the US and Europe. Yarn Expo is an effective channel for us to meet these buyers."

Occupying two halls, or 5,000 sqm, the show featured a complete range of natural, manmade, blended and speciality fibres and yarns for apparel and home textiles.

Yarn Expo featured a new special zone this year for companies rated Top Brands by the Chinese government: "The China Top Brand Zone really helped promote our brand to the overseas market. We met a lot of buyers from overseas and China," said Mr Li Xin, Quality Assurance Manager of Bros Holding, China.

Yarn Expo is held concurrently with Intertextile Beijing Apparel Fabrics, a show for textile manufacturers. Many visited Yarn Expo to source their own materials, including Gulistan from Pakistan.

Director Mr Kashif N. Shakoor took a break from exhibiting at Intertextile Beijing to visit Yarn Expo. "We're a very vertical company so we come to Yarn Expo to look at raw materials and fibres," he said.

"It's useful to have the two shows at the same time because we're here both as a buyer and a seller. It's also a good place to see trends."

Other visitors came to Beijing entirely for yarns and fibres. "I heard about this show in Thailand and flew here directly to attend.

I'm very interested in Chinese yarn and the products here are good quality, especially the natural yarn and speciality yarn products.

For me, the show is worth visiting and it's a very good opportunity to see and source all kinds of yarn products," said Mr Vitaya Likittanawong, Marketing Manager for Lee Viwat Textile Industry, Thailand.

"I came from Brazil to attend this show," said Mr Thomas Friedlander from Multitex, Brazil. "It has a good reputation in the global textile industry. The timing is good for me and the products presented are interesting and good quality."

Yarn Expo, held in Beijing in the spring and Shanghai in the autumn, is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry - CCPIT, China Cotton Textile Association, China Wool Textile Association, China Chemical Fiber Association, China Bast & Leaf Fibers Textiles Association, and China Textile Information Centre.
