Yarn Expo Spring 2017 to host over 390 exhibitors
Mar '17
More than 390 exhibitors from 12 countries will showcase their yarns and fibres at the Yarn Expo Spring 2017 that will take place in Shanghai, china from March 15-17. The trade fair is expanding by nearly 20 per cent this year and will cover a comprehensive range of high-quality sourcing options to accommodate the changing needs of the market.

The trade fair will showcase some of the world's highest quality yarn and fibre products, such as natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax/regenerated flax, silk, and man-made fibres and yarns, as well as specialty products including elastic, and fancy and blended yarns.

Exhibitors from countries like China, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Slovakia, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam are participating in the fair. The overseas exhibitor line-up remains strong with 90 international suppliers taking part.

While the India Pavilion, Pakistan Zone as well as leading exhibitors from Uzbekistan and Vietnam will showcase competitive cotton yarns, elastic yarns and eco-products, exhibitors from Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Slovakia and Thailand will impress buyers by exhibiting a series of cutting-edge fancy yarns, and synthetic, knitting and metallic fibres and yarns. Birla Planet will demonstrate its Birla spunshades, Birla micro-viscose and Birla micro modal products.

More than 300 domestic exhibitors will be highlighted in six display zones – Fancy Yarn Zone, Natural Cotton Yarn Zone, Colourful Chemical Zone, Quality Wool Zone, Green Linen Zone and e-Commerce Zone – to reveal a wide range of innovative yarns and fibres, such as nylon, viscose filament, renewable and recycled fibres and much more.

Besides selling and sourcing, all fairgoers can also gain inspiration and learn the latest market insights from the Shenghong China Fibre Trend Area 2017-18 in the Colourful Chemical Zone, as well as from a series of informative seminar sessions.

Along with Yarn Expo Spring 2017, four other textile trade fairs will be held concurrently from March 15-17 at the same venue – Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Spring Edition, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Spring Edition, PH Value and the China International Fashion Fair (CHIC).

Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, China Cotton Textile Association, China Wool Textile Association, China Chemical Fiber Association, China Bast & Leaf Fibres Textiles Association and China Textile Information Centre are organising the Yarn Expo Spring. (KD)
